Last week we showed you a great trailer for director Martin McDonagh‘s (In Bruges) comedy Seven Psychopaths which follows Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, and Christopher Walken who steal the wrong shih tzu and end up running from Woody Harrelson. Sounds like a good time to me. The film also stars Tom Waits, Abbie Cornish, Gabourey Sidibe, and Olga Kurylenko.
Seven Psychopaths opens on October 12th, watch the trailer below:
Martin McDonagh seems to know what he’s doing when it comes to dark comedy, and it doesn’t hurt to cast a great cast to deliver it either. Colin Farrell worked with him to make In Bruges, one of the best movies of 2008. You have Sam Rockwell, one of the most understated actors of our time (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Moon), and Woody Harrelson who doesn’t seem to give a bad performance ever (Money Train was awesome).
There are more ‘psychopaths’ in the trailer a quick plot: three hapless dog kidnappers steal a pup from a gangster. The film also stars Christopher Walken, Tom Waits, Gabourey Sidibe, Abbie Cornish, and Olga Kurylenko.

It’s not the best time to have at the movies this year, but it’s one of the best films you will see. Precious is a hard kick to the gut – with such gritty realism, the movie plays out with relentless torture. Torture for the characters and the audience. Most dramatic undertakings in any year of filmmaking will at least try and provide people with a final feeling of relief and warmth. This is not one of those movies, nor should it be. The movie is honest and emotionally charged, and you can’t find that these days from a lot of other movies who tend to take the high road and please the soul instead of challenging it.
It’s been some time since I first watched the trailer for Precious. I enjoyed it a lot, but couldn’t really put it to words for the site. Not like New Moon, in that case I just don’t want to talk about it because it looks rubbish. Anyways, here is the latest poster (reminded me of the Taken poster) and original trailer (after jump) for the movie that has been gaining ground in limited release (making double the per-theater gross of 2012 last week in fewer than 200 theaters). The cast is also in talks for awards from all over the house; Mariah Carey, Mo’Nique and star Gabourey Sidibe are all taking in the praise these days.
