Red-Band Trailer for ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’

Martin McDonagh (Seven Psychopaths, In Bruges) hasn’t made a film in five years but he’s back in fine form with the trailer for his new film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

The red-band trailer is packed full of the deeply dark comedy we’ve come to expect from McDonagh (with a not so subtle social commentary nod to Ferguson) and he’s assembled a pitch-perfect cast for it, led by Oscar winner Frances McDormand, delivering possibly the funniest, raunchiest lines of her career. The last one in this trailer is a gut-busting scream.

From Fox Searchlight:

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

The film also stars Peter Dinklage, Lucas Hedges, Abbie Cornish, and Caleb Landry Jones.

Here is the red-band trailer and poster below.

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
