Hot off the heels of its TIFF Midnight Madness debut, the red-band trailer for Ben Wheatley’s follow-up to High-Rise, Free Fire, has landed.
Featuring a bevvy of bullets, the film follows the events of a gun deal spiraled out of control and… well, that’s about it. The trailer makes no bones about communicating that this movie will be rolling around on the ground in the dirty factory floor, and it looks all the better for it to me. Maybe Wheatley is taking some inspiration from Albert Pyun‘s Mean Guns? Anyway, I love these kinds of one-location movies, and though I was hot-and-cold on Wheatley’s previous film High-Rise, I pretty much loved A Field in England.
Plus, look at this cast: Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Jack Reynor, Michael Smiley, Sam Riley and Noah Taylor. Jesus, it’s a veritable murderers‘ row of people that I want to watch act the hell out of an action picture. What do you think of the red-band trailer?
Free Fire is scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom on 31 March 2017 by StudioCanal UK.
