Or at least that’s what Woody Harrelson’s character thinks in the latest trailer for crime drama Triple 9. Let’s just say that whatever is about to go down, it probably won’t end well for everyone involved.
“A gang of criminals and corrupt cops plan the murder of a police officer in order to pull off their biggest heist yet across town.”
A 999 call (or triple 9) means officer down, in case you were wondering what’s the deal with the name. So what we have here looks like a straight up action movie with a phenomenal cast, and I bet that has mostly to do with them wanting to work with John Hillcoat. That being said I hope the film lives up to what the trailers build it as. I said it before and I’ll continue to say it, this looks a bit like The Town, and I’m all for that. So definitely keeping my eyes on Triple 9.
In Triple 9 you’ll see Casey Affleck (the cop targeted), Anthony Mackie (the corrupt partner), Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet (doing another accent), Chiwetel Ejiofor, Teresa Palmer, Aaron Paul, Gal Gadot and Norman Reedus. John Hillcoat (The Road) directed with a screenplay by Matt Cook.
Triple 9 opens February 19th in the UK and February 26th in the US.
