Renowned Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen stars as the world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla, a.k.a. the Black Kaiser, in a new Netflix-exclusive film titled, Polar.

The upcoming movie is a live-action adaptation of the acclaimed graphic novel of the same name, and it spotlights Duncan Vizla enjoying his retirement until his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Now in order to survive, he finds himself back at what he’s doing best by going head to head with an army of younger and more ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him eliminated.

Directed by Jonas Åkerlund, with the film’s soundtrack created by heralded DJ/producer Deadmau5, the film also costars Vanessa Hudgens, Johnny Knoxville, Richard Dreyfuss, Katheryn Winnick, Matt Lucas and more.

Polar is slated to premiere on Netflix on January 25. Enjoy the trailer above.
