The first trailer has arrived for writer and director Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges follow up, Seven Psychopaths, and it is just an insanely brilliant as I was expecting. In fact, it is far far better than I ever could have hoped it would be!
The rather lengthy trailer (no complaints) went online earlier today, and seriously there is just far too much good stuff to quote or talk about, you simply need to see it for yourself. Here is proof that In Bruges was in no way (and I never believed it was) a one off. Seven Psychopaths appears to have taken the genius of McDonagh’s simple hitman tale and amplified it in both comedy, action and violence. It is very likely that Seven Psychopaths could become one of the best films of the year!

Written and directed by Martin McDonagh, Seven Psychopaths’ superb cast includes Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Olga Kurylenko and Tom Waits.
Farrell plays a screenwriter who struggles to find the handle on his script, called Seven Psychopaths. He gets drawn into the dog-napping escapades of his friends (played by Rockwell and Walken). Once the beloved Shih Tzu owned by a psychopathic gangster (Harrelson) goes missing, the screenwriter finds himself fueled with all the drama he needs for his screenplay, if he can stay alive long enough to write it all down.
