March is turning out to be a strong month for the UK and Irish cinephiles. Already we’ve had Logan, Kong: Skull Island, Beauty And The Beast, Personal Shopper, Get Out, Power Rangers, Life, Ghost In The Shell and Free Fire.
After last year’s ode to JG Ballard‘s class war High-Rise, Ben Wheatley stays in the 1970’s for his next movie, a love letter to seventies crime thrillers. Ahead of it’s the UK release at the end of the month, Studiocanal has sent us a spanking new 60 second UK trailer. A trailer that delivers a slice of black comedy, gun action and ‘bad girls’ like Brie Larson! Whatever you do Sharlto Copley doesn’t deliver pizzas and remember what side your on too..
As you’ll notice from the opening dialogue the language is potty and fruity so if f-bombs are not your thing, Free Fire might not be your thing. However, if you’re watching this trailer which does showcase not footage, dialogue and a taste of the humour on show but hearing the naughty words could get you into trouble here’s a cleaner, safer version..
Free Fire is centred 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.
We caught the movie a couple of weeks ago at Glasgow Film Festival, our opinions were divided. Ben Wheatley is slowly becoming one of UK’s best filmmakers and his fanbase is growing movie by movie.Our writer Zach Roddis attended the screening and loved every minute of it, you can read his review here. We will be reviewing it again for the cinema release which is 31st March 2017.
Free Fire stars Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Jack Reynor, Babou Ceesay, Enzo Cilenti, Sam Riley, Michael Smiley and Noah Taylor.
