First trailer for Martin McDonagh‘s dark comedy Seven Psychopaths, starring Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, and Christopher Walken, has been released.
Farrell, Walken and Rockwell play three lowly con men-dog thieves who inadvertently steal a cuddly shih tzu that belongs to a volatile crime kingpin (played by Harrelson). Unsurprisingly, all Hell breaks loose, including shootings, tearful gangsters, femme fatales, Tom Waits cradling a bunny and the requisite philosophical digressions.
The film also stars Harry Dean Stanton, Olga Kurylenko, Abbie Cornish, Gabourey Sidibe, Zeljko Ivanek, and Tom Waits.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
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 will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September and opens in the U.S. on October 12th, 2012.
