Check out this clip from the new action film, THE HEIR APPARENT: LARGO WINCH!

Hey folks, Ambush Bug here with a clip for the new action flick THE HEIR APPARENT: LARGO WINCH! Here’s the official synopsis:

When billionaire financier Nerio Winch (Miki Manojlovic) and head of the W Group is murdered, his second in command (Kristin Scott Thomas) must locate his only heir – a heretofore unknown adopted son, Largo (Tomer Sisley). But first the heir – a twentysomething adventurer – must overcome an onslaught of drug traffickers, assassins, corporate raiders and double-dealing insiders to fulfill his destiny in this twisty, fast-paced corporate thriller.

Sounds like fun. The film is directed by Jérôme Salle and will open in theaters and be available on video on-demand November 18h (that’s today!).

Here’s the clip.

    New action film?

    by David Cloverfield

    Isn't Largo Winch ancient history? It came out four years ago.

    The heir looks like franchise material

    by Gore_monkey

    Looks good!

    At least 3 years old

    by pug-lapprenti

    This is a French movie that is at least three years old. The sequel came out earlier this year, featuring Sharon Stone. Their are quite fun films, taking from a French / belgian comic book series named Largo Winch. The casting of the main character caused a little trouble, as in the comics, Largo is kind of caucasian, slavic type. Both movies are fun and action packed so they are definitively worth checking out.

    Have Part 1 & 2 on Blu here. Very 'new' indeed. ;-)

    This is why I hate U.S. fucking distributors

    by Guy Grand

    I've come close to pulling the trigger and just ordering this DVD from the U.K. for the last year, but like so many flicks that originate in Europe and beyond, it takes U.S. distributors and DVD labels fucking forever to release them NTSC here, and I sometimes just hold out and hope things I want will finally show up in the U.S. ("Fear Me Not," "Deliver Us From Evil," etc.). I don't want to have to get the PAL version of things, but I never know if shit's ever going to get released here, so most times I just get to the point where I'm fed up waiting and have to buy it from the U.K. or elsewhere ("The Loved Ones," "Paris Lockdown," "Everything," "The Hide," etc.). I mean "36" with Daniel Auteil, a fan-fucking-tastic French police drama, finally just got released on DVD here, and I've had the U.K. release since 2009! I fucking hate, hate, hate, hate, hate the narrow-minded fucks who run DVD labels and distribution here. No wonder the rest of the world sees us as fucking cultural Luddites.

    US Version...

    by rhaemye

    There are 2 French Largo Winch movies, however completely in French, I believe. It seems they reshot a number of scenes in English so America wouldn't have to read too many words on the bottom of the screen. (I don't like subtitles myself, by the way.) I'm not sure if this US Version is the first movie or the two movies - somehow - combined. AICN could've mentioned a bit more.

    Largo Winch?

    by pavel hora

    I hear there is supposed to be a Largo Winch adaptation. Anyone? In other words what does this mediocre, boring crap has to do with Largo Winch? Jeez :-(

    Damn this looks bad.

    Very old news...

    by BelgiumRules

    The movie , which is based on the brilliant Largo Winch - comics, was filmed 4-5 years ago and released shortly afterwards... In the meantime a sequel has been made and released which stars Sharon Stone (no joke...). Ignore it and read the comics, they are much much better...

  • Nov. 21, 2011, 7:19 a.m. CST

    the sequel stars Sharon Stone (fact!)

    by BelgiumRules

    Yeah.. good but not great...

    by ColloquiallyBorn

    Yes it is the movies that came out 3 years ago in France.. Saw it.. Was ok, but not great. Being French I saw it in it's full French version so no annoying subtitles but I have to say that like many European films it has it's shares of annoying lenghs that should have been left behind on the cutting room floor. I don't know why most movies from Europe have these moments that you just wonder "Did I learn anything about the characters or storyline from the last 5 minutes of this film? Why was that scene even in there?".. In all I'll give it a 6.5 stars out of 10 but that's it. It passes but doesn't make me WANT to see the second one (Especially that Sharon Stone is in it is a pretty good indicator that it should be very *bleh* in term of quality!)... I'll see part deux when I see it.. or when there's just nothing else to watch..

    @guitar_dudester91 : Not a PS1 game

    by Nonoche

    Originally it's a series of novels by belgian author Jean Van Hamme (of XIII fame), which later became famous in a comic adaptation.
