Don’t worry, the trailer isn’t red band because of violence or nudity (in fact leading ladies Olga Kurylenko and Abbie Cornish aren’t in it at all), but rather because of just how many times Colin Farrell says “fuck” in it. Here’s the thing, though: we could listen to him yell “fuck” all day. Just like in “In Bruges,” Farrell is in top form here. Of course, it helps that he has a great cast alongside him.
“Seven Psychopaths” has put together quite the ensemble of actors, and every bit of footage we’ve seen for the flick seems to prove that they have fantastic chemistry opposite one another. Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken play the main trio at the center of Rockwell’s character’s dog-napping business, but that dynamic is sure to be thrown on its head when Tom Waits steps into the mix. Then there’s Woody Harrelson, who looks downright hilarious as the crime boss who gets his precious Shih Tzu stolen. If you couldn’t tell, we’re pretty excited for this movie.
Here’s the official synopsis of “Seven Psychopaths,” courtesy of CBS Films:
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.
The film is due in theaters on October 12.
