Hvis det skulle være gået nogens næse forbi, medvirker vor internationale filmhelt Mads Mikkelsen i to bemærkelsesværdigt enslydende film i denne måned: Netflix’ actionkrimi ‘Polar’, der lander på streamingtjenesten den 25. januar, og overlevelsesfilmen ‘Arctic’, der får premiere i biograferne den 31. januar.
I begge films trailere traver Mikkelsen igennem en hulens masse sne. Og i begge ser det ud til, at han forsøger at redde en kvinde i nød. Lighederne mellem de to titler har ikke overraskende givet anledning til en del forvirring såvel som stor moro, ikke mindst på Twitter, hvor flere brugere har en fest over de to gange Mikkelsen på vinterferie (og blandt andet refererer til en vittig artikel på Slate, der guider til filmenes forskelle):
Two of Mads Mikkelsen’s (@theofficialmads) movies for 2019 are Arctic and Polar. If this motherfucker shows up in Frozen 2 my head just may explode!

So Mads Mikkelsen is in a film called Arctic and a film called Polar in the next few weeks. I’ll warn you now I’m going to get confused.

So, in early February of 2019, the movies “Arctic” and “Polar” will be out at the same exact time time..both starring Mads Mikkelsen.
C’mon, guys. Even “The Illusionist” and “The Prestige” had like 2 months in between them, and that causes confusion TO THIS DAY 😅 pic.twitter.com/LSaGNZt83m

Mads Mikkelsen must star in the eventual live-action Frozen reboot to complete this trilogy of chilly rescue movies with one-word titles https://t.co/if4kcrfyYe

Polar looks shite, and Arctic looks great. There are bad Mads Mikkelsen movies, however, there are no bad Mads Mikklesen performances.

I just realized Mads Mikkelsen has two movies coming out this month. One called Polar and the other called Arctic. It’s like they planned an inevitable double-feature.
