With three films the last decade — The Proposition, The Road, and Lawless — director John Hillcoat has crafted a certain kind of adult-geared, perhaps bleak dramas that are rare in today’s marketplace. With his latest, Triple 9, he takes on the heist genre along with a star-studded cast. Once set for a fall release, it’ll now debut early next year and the first red band trailer has landed.
Starring Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Gal Gadot, Teresa Palmer and Clifton Collins, Jr., the Matt Cook-scripted story follows a group of crooked cops planning a major heist. Judging from this first red band trailer, it looks like the kind of dark Michael Mann-esque drama that we’re greatly looking forward to. Check it out below along with the poster
In TRIPLE NINE, a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down.” Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.
Triple 9 opens on February 19th, 2016.
