We’ve been anxiously awaiting director Martin McDonagh’s follow-up to his 2008 debut feature “In Bruges” seemingly since it was announced, and everything new we find out about it further cements that interest. This latest trailer teases everything we’d hoped would be in “Seven Psychopaths”: fantastic writing, great comedic elements, chemistry between the cast and a whole lot of Colin Farrell. Check the trailer out after the jump.
The one thing we find disappointing about this trailer is that we only meet five of the titular seven psychopaths: Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Tom Waits and Woody Harrelson. Abbie Cornish and Olga Kurylenko are also two of the seven, and we didn’t even get a glimpse of them in this teaser (though we did see them in the green band trailer). Hopefully their roles here aren’t indicative of what they are in the full film since we’re really looking forward to seeing what level of crazy they have to add to the mix.
Here’s the official synopsis for “Seven Psychopaths”:
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” opens on October 12.
