Russell Crowe and Karen Gillan movie Sleeping Dogs has released a first trailer.
The upcoming crime thriller sees retired homicide detective and Alzheimer's patient Roy Freeman (Crowe) re-opening the closed case of a murdered college professor.
"If we've put away the wrong guy, this is a chance for us to make it right," says Roy in the trailer.
Suspect Laura Baines (Gillan) later tells him: "You may not have memory, but you do have quite the imagination..."
The film, which shot in Australia last year, is based on EO Chirovici's novel The Book of Mirrors and is directed by Adam Cooper.
The synopsis for the film reads: "In the wake of a cutting-edge Alzheimer’s treatment, former homicide detective Roy Freeman is tasked with re-examining a brutal murder case from his past – the grisly murder of a college professor (Csokas).
"Intrigued and fighting to regain his memory, Roy enlists his former partner (Flanagan) to help him revive the investigation.
"This time though, things unfold very differently when they encounter a magnetic and mysterious woman (Gillan): as he uncovers a tangled web of contradictions and secrets, Roy is forced to face a horrific reality that changes his world forever in the blink of an eye."
Sleeping Dogs is due out in US cinemas on March 22, with a UK date still TBA.
