Magnolia Pictures' synopsis of HEADHUNTERS:

HEADHUNTERS stars the talented Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) as Roger, a charming scoundrel and Norway's most accomplished headhunter. Roger is living a life of luxury well beyond his means, and stealing art to subsidize his expensive lifestyle. When his beautiful gallery owner wife introduces him to a former mercenary in the possession of an extremely valuable painting, he decides to risk it all to get his hands on it, and in doing so discovers something which makes him a hunted man.

HEADHUNTERS is based on Jo Nesbø's best-selling thriller from 2008.

Magnolia Pictures' synopsis of TROLLHUNTER:

The government says there's nothing to worry about  it's just a problem with bears making trouble in the mountains and forests of Norway. But local hunters don't believe it  and neither do a trio of college students who want to find out the truth. Armed with a video camera, they trail a mysterious "poacher," who wants nothing to do with them. But their persistence lands them straight in the path of the objects of his pursuits: Trolls. They soon find themselves documenting every move of this grizzled, unlikely hero  The Troll Hunter  risking their lives to uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.
