Watch: First Red Band Trailer for John Hillcoat's Crime Film 'Triple 9'
"Your job: out monster the monster, and get home at the end of the night." Open Road Films has debuted a trailer for Triple 9, a crime action-thriller involving a highly coordinated heist that goes wrong. Not to be confused with Kathryn Bigelow's Triple Frontier, this is the latest work from John Hillcoat who last brought us Lawless and he looks to be channeling his inner Michael Mann. The huge and impressive ensemble cast includes Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Gal Gadot, Teresa Palmer and Clifton Collins, Jr. This is quite a brutal, action-packed trailer, and I love the music choices, totally sold me on this film. Fire it up below and enjoy.
Here's the first official red band trailer for John Hillcoat's Triple 9, first found via The Film Stage:
In Triple Nine, a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for "officer down." Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the entire attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge. Triple 9 is directed by Australian filmmaker John Hillcoat, of the films Lawless, The Road and The Proposition previously. The screenplay is by Matt Cook. The film has yet to premiere at any film festivals or otherwise. Open Road Films has John Hillcoat's Triple 9 set to open in theaters on February 19th, 2016 next year. First impression?
