In Bruges International Trailer
It's Colin Farrell and feckin' funny

24 January 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards

If you haven't already seen the US trailer for In Bruges, then do yourself a favour and watch the international version that's just been released to us by Universal and is sitting eagerly below.

In Bruges opened the Sundance film festival this year and is not only the best thing Colin Farrell's made in ages but also a terrific little comedy, certainly the best we've seen so far this year.

Farrell and Brendan Gleeson play a pair of hitmen who are dispatched to the Belgian city of Bruges after a bungled assignment. This is intended to be something of a quiet getaway, but Farrell's character is a miserable little bollix and finds the only way to keep boredom at bay is to get himself in trouble. Look out also for a terrific villain turn from Ralph Fiennes.

In Bruges is in UK cinemas on April 4.

RE: In Bruges International Trailer
It was announced today that this will be opening the Dublin International Film Festival too, so good to see some home-grown talent getting the big opening slot! Have to admit, I wasn't 100% sold on this first time I saw the trailer, but various reports back seem to be positive so I can look forward to it now. More

Count me in. Looks funny in a sort of Grosse point blank meets Eurotrip meets intermission. nice. Gleessons a great actor as well.   Only thing it's missing is Colm Meaney for the Villanous boss     More
