‘Seven Psychopaths’ Trailer Lets Sam Rockwell Finally Play a Slightly Unhinged Character

Martin McDonagh‘s In Bruges remains one of the finest black comedies in recent years thanks to his sharp writing/directing and a couple of fantastic performances by Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. Both actors displayed great comedic chops alongside a surprising pathos, and the result is a film that’s eminently quotable and highly re-watchable.

And it was four years ago.

McDonagh is finally following that film up, and the first trailer has arrived. Seven Psychopaths stars Colin Farrell as a struggling screenwriter whose friends get him mixed up in dog-napping, violence, and murder. Those mischievous friends are played by Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken, and they’re joined by Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko, and Tom Waits. Check out the trailer below.

It’s so good seeing Sam Rockwell happy and smiling isn’t it?

Seven Psychopaths premieres at this year’s TIFF in September before opening nationwide on October 12th.
