Two New Trailers for Ben Wheatley's Comical Shoot Out Film 'Free Fire'
"I forgot who's side I'm on!" A brand new 60-second trailer has launched for the film Free Fire, the latest from British filmmaker Ben Wheatley. This has been playing at film festivals all over the world since it premiered at midnight at the Toronto Film Festival last fall. Free Fire is one big shoot out film set entirely inside a warehouse in Boston in the 1970s. It's a throwback to action films from the 70s where it's nothing but a bunch of people shooting at each other. This ensemble action movie stars Sharlto Copley (who is hilarious in this), Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Noah Taylor, Sam Riley, Michael Smiley & Jack Reynor. This is definitely worth seeing whenever it shows up at your local cinema. Enjoy.
Here's the newest UK trailer (+ UK poster) for Ben Wheatley's Free Fire, direct from YouTube:
Update! Here's another new Japanese trailer for Ben Wheatley's Free Fire, also from YouTube:
Set in Boston in 1978, a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two gangs turns into a shootout and a game of survival. About a weapons deal gone wrong that escalates into a manic, bullet-riddled standoff inside an abandoned warehouse. Free Fire is both written and directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Ben Wheatley, of Down Terrace, Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England and High-Rise previously. The screenplay was written by Wheatley and Amy Jump. The film first premiered in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival, and played the London & Stockholm Film Festivals, plus at SXSW this month. A24 will release Wheatley's Free Fire in theaters starting on April 21st this spring. Excited for this?

This looks like a great comedy. The dude with the mutton chops is a secret ace when ever I see him pop up.

Those heated exchanges of arguments. You never know how will they ever end. and it's always a good thing to have a woman with filthy mouth along in it. So juicy ...

If you ever in the renting mood I'd start with Kill List and then check out Sightseers for some dark comic relief. I was really looking forward to High Rise, but it turned out to be a bloated dullfest. Free Fire looks like a fun return to form...

Can I watch the whole movie in the Japanese trailer style? Comic book style speech bubbles and a Japanese narrator yelling excitedly! Interesting.

Ben Wheatley is amazing. Down Terrace is one of his best. A Field in England is also great.

Hope this is better than High Rise which was a huge disappointment imo.

I'm really not sure about this. I can't help but get the vibe that this is gonna take itself really seriously a la Tarantino. Like it's trying too hard to be cool and hip from the outset rather than being labelled cool and hip by others, if that makes sense to anyone else!

I love Ben Wheatley and this looks like an enjoyable ride, but I can't help but think this film should've been condensed into a terrific climax of a better movie. The outset of the shootout seems forced and unbelievable, and so the conflict isn't as gripping (plus characters will likely remain rather flat), not to mention that it would've been much more awesome to see such a shoot-out without expecting it, instead of knowing it has to happen right from the start in order for the movie to exist in the first place.
