We have released a dramatic new short film for the new Ford Edge SUV – featuring film star Mads Mikkelsen, who appears in new movie Doctor Strange and the forthcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Le Fantôme shows Mikkelsen in pursuit of a couple starting a new life under witness protection – but who drive the distinctive Edge. Shot on location in Croatia, the film also features Barbara Steele, who found fame in 1960’s gothic horror movies.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to help launch the new Edge and be part of such an exciting campaign. It’s a beautiful car that deserves a beautiful film. I hope you enjoy it,” said Mikkelsen.
The director is Jake Scott, son of legendary director Sir Ridley Scott, and whose credits include Welcome to the Rileys, and music videos for The Rolling Stones, Radiohead and R.E.M.
“To truly represent the new Ford Edge – our flagship SUV in Europe – Le Fantôme is a short film executed to the highest standards. Mads Mikkelsen and Jake Scott were natural choices to deliver a cinematic experience as refined and compelling as the vehicle itself,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe.
