Mads Mikkelsen‘s stateside profile has risen exponentially with his title role in NBC’s Hannibal. And his latest pic The Salvation is screening in the Midnight section at Cannes this month. Here’s a look at his star turn in the medieval epic Age Of Uprising: The Legend Of Michael Kohlhaas, which earned a Palme d’Or nom on the Riviera last year. Michael is a respected merchant and family man as Europe rests at the crossroads between the old world and new. But then a nobleman steals his horses, which leads to mayhem — and a rampaging quest for revenge. Bruno Ganz, Denis Lavant, Melusine Mayanee, David Kross, Delphine Chuillot and Sergei Lopez in the pic from director Arnaud des Pallieres. He also co-wrote it with Christelle Berthevas. Based on the literary classic, the Music Box film opens May 30 in theaters and VOD. Have a look:
