Next month Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire will be officially launched in UK & Irish cinemas March but if you can’t wait that long, it’s on tour. The past couple of weeks the movie has been touring around UK and Ireland with the director in attendance after the exclusive previews. As a thank you, Studiocanal are going all Hi-Karate and have created a 1970’s a Japanese style poster which will be available at the screenings, check out the poster…
Free Fire is set in 1978 Boston and centre’s around Justine (Brie Larson) who has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen (Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley) and a gang led by Vernon (Sharlto Copley) and Ord (Armie Hammer) who are selling them a stash of guns. But when shots are fired in the handover, a heart-stopping game of survival ensues.
High-Rise divided us here at The Peoples Movies (& Cinehouse), but we have hope this will deliver the goods. We are big fans of Martin Scorsese (the executive producer of this)whom was a big inspiration.
Tickets are on sale at selected venues with more available very soon: http://scnl.co/FreeFireTour
