US Trailer For Seven Psychopaths Arrives
In Bruges' Farrell and McDonagh return

14 August 2012  |  Written by Ali Plumb

seven psychopaths

In 2008, director / playwright / screenwriter Martin McDonagh unveiled In Bruges, a black comedy-drama starring Colin Farrell. Now, in 2012, he's bringing the world Seven Psychopaths, a black comedy-drama starring Colin Farrell, and the US trailer for it is here for you below.

As well as Mr. Farrell (who plays a troubled writer called Martin trying to finish a script called, you guessed it, Seven Psychopaths), Seven Psychopaths also boasts the talents of Sam Rockwell as his best mate Billy.

Billy's current hobby-cum-job is abducting dogs with his friend Hans (Christopher Walken), who then takes the pooches back to their owners and collects the reward.

But after dog-napping the wrong hound, Hans and Billy are in some serious trouble with a local gangster, Charlie (Woody Harrelson, whose role was originally earmarked for Mickey Rourke) who comes at them with a fury usually reserved for wronged biblical figures.

The trailer shows it as more of a knockabout comedy-type-thing, but as fans of McDonagh's work will tell you, there's going to be a lot more to it than that. Expect metatextual insight, violence, Tom Waits and bunny rabbits and that's just for starters.

Seven Psychopaths will arrive in US cinemas come October 12. The UK release date, however, is December 7.

Despite.........
my Rockwell man-crush,loving In Bruges and the amazing cast, this trailer looks a bit underwhelming ! Hope it`s just a duff trailer. Would be truly epic if McDonagh could find some convoluted way of working a Walken vs Rockwell dance off into the script !!!! More

Seven Psychopaths
A little bit of Raising Arizona, a bit of Big Lebowski. It looks quite Coens in a very wonderful way, doesn't it? Dog-napping hasn't looked this much fun since BLack Marble. More
