Not for Sale - Concept Art
I love Eastern Promises! You've got a badass Mortensen, a weasely Cassel, and one of the strangest and most intense knife fights to ever take place in a bathhouse (though, to be fair, I'm guessing there are only maybe like two bathhouse knife fight scenes in the entirety of cinematic history). Nikolai's two-fingers-against-the-throat gesture (sign language for I'm gonna git you sucka) is masterfully depicted by artist César Sebastián and really highlights the shadow and subterfuge that make up such a huge part of Viggo's character. To see more of César's brilliance, be sure to checkout his blog and deviantArt page.
