The master of dark comedy, Martin McDonagh, has returned with a larger ensemble, added violence and a more elaborate story, following up his 2008 drama In Bruges. Seven Psychopaths, which sees his star Colin Farrell return as lead — this time instead of an assassin, a Hollywood screenwriter — in a meta look at that process, along with a batch of psycho killers.
The first trailer below packs the same sharp, bleak wit as his last feature with what looks to be a more frenetic style. I love the twisted dog kidnapping plot and the glimpse at a cameo from Tom Waits. Even with a bigger scope, McDonagh looks to have comfortably nailed this one. Check it out below for the film also starring Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken, Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko and Gabourey Sidibe.
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.
Seven Psychopaths premieres at TIFF, kicking off on Sept. 6th, then arrives in theaters on October 12th.
