Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Casey Affleck & More in Thrilling Triple 9 Trailer
Director John Hillcoat's upcoming cops and robbers thriller Triple 9 boasts an out-of-this-world cast and a very dark premise. A crew of dirty cops, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Anthony Mackie (Captain America) and Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) are blackmailed by the Russian mob, lead by Irene (Kate Winslet) to execute an impossible heist, they decide the only way to pull it off is to create a 999, police code for "officer down." The good guys (as far as we can tell from the trailer), include decent cops played by Woody Harrelson and Casey Affleck. Even Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, is in the film.
The trailer, which was just released, reminds us a touch of Michael Mann's epic 1995 crime drama Heat, which is a very good thing. Here's hoping Hillcoat and his huge, top notch cast have delivered something equally thrilling. The trailer gives us hope. It's out on Feb 19, 2016.
