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:
[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” class=”” width=””]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.[/box]
The film also stars Peter Dinklage, Lucas Hedges, Abbie Cornish, and Caleb Landry Jones.
