Just a couple of weeks ago, we brought you the first trailer for Martin McDonagh’s upcoming film Seven Psychopaths, which gave us a good look at what we can expect from McDonagh’s highly-anticipated second feature after having previously brought us the brilliant black comedy In Bruges.
Today, thanks to The Film Stage, we have the red band trailer for your viewing pleasure. As usual, this is the version that lets the bad language fly all about, so if the first trailer gave you any false impressions that McDonagh was going soft, hopefully this will alleviate those worries.
For those of you unfamiliar with the film, here’s the synopsis:
An alcoholic screenwriter (Colin Farrell) struggling to write a serial-killer script gets more real-life inspiration than he can handle when a dognapping scheme gone awry brings a galaxy of crazies to his doorstep. A top-notch cult-movie cast — including Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Tom Waits, Harry Dean Stanton — anchors this wacky, blood-spattered commentary on the psycho-killer thriller from the writer-director of In Bruges.
McDonagh certainly has a lot to live up to after his excellent first feature, but I’m loving what I’ve seen of this project so far. It looks to be a return to the same kind of black comedy that made In Bruges such a success. Hopefully it won’t disappoint.
Seven Psychopaths is set to premiere at The Toronto International Film Festival next month before hitting theaters on October 12th.
