Skarsgård & Peña Star in First Red Band Trailer for 'War on Everyone'
"They're gonna kick your ass… and get away with it." Icon Film Distribution from the UK has debuted an official trailer for John Michael McDonagh's War on Everyone, a wacky and totally absurd new comedy from the filmmaker behind Calvary and The Guard. Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña star as two corrupt cops in New Mexico who end up battling against a British Lord, played by Theo James, who comes to town for his own piece of the pie. This film received some rave reviews out of Berlinale and SXSW, where it premiered, and is the kind of totally wacky comedy that will have a few people falling out of their seats with laughter. This plays a red band trailer and it does a okay job teasing lots of the humor in this. Have fun.
Here's the first red band (UK) trailer for John Michael McDonagh's War on Everyone, from YouTube:
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Terry Monroe (Skarsgård) and Bob Bolaño (Peña) are two corrupt cops who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. Things take a sinister turn, however, when they try to intimidate someone who is more dangerous than they are. Or is he? War on Everyone is both written & directed by English filmmaker John Michael McDonagh, of the highly acclaimed films The Guard and Calvary previously. This first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February and also played at SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. War on Everyone opens in the UK starting this September, but still doesn't have a US release date set yet. Stay tuned for more info. Your thoughts?
