War on Everyone Trailer

"Utterly irresponsible." A new UK trailer has debuted for the absurd, vulgar and hilarious indie comedy War on Everyone, from Calvary director John Michael McDonagh. We featured a red band teaser trailer for this a few months ago, but it didn't fully dive into the humor the way this new trailer does. Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña star as two corrupt cops from 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 is one of those wild indie comedies that arrived out of nowhere and will earn a huge cult following, so jump on it now before everyone else discovers it. And don't worry, this is definitely R-rated and totally worth seeing.Enjoy.

Here's the new UK trailer (+ poster) 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?

Duh, am I the only one who didn't recognize Paul Reiser until halfway thru his scene?

Looks fun! Like these two actors, and this seems like a cool movie.

Pena needs a freaking break!!!! This will not be it. Sadly.

I tend to like Alexander Skarsgard more and more. This looks like dark and funny... Everything that makes mockery of police force is ok with me ...

Well, this is a must see. I was laughing a lot watching the trailer. Plus, this is the director who made the very funny The Guard. Then followed that with the very serious and dark and just excellent Calvary. Now this which looks dark and very funny. Quite the writer and director, that's for sure. Must run in the family as his brother wrote and director the excellent In Bruges. I actually can't wait to see this and for that I'm surprised and happy as it doesn't happen often, for me at least, what with the current state of affairs and movies being made today.

Pena really is the MVP... fracks sake. This guy deserves/has earned/needs/warrants a real solo vehicle.
