I’ll be honest, I didn’t know about this movie before this week, which is a bit surprising ’cause usually I know every Woody Harrelson film in production.
‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,‘ stars Woody and Oscar-winner Frances McDormand. She plays an angry mother who believes the local police department isn’t trying hard enough to find the person who murdered her daughter.
After three months pass with no arrests, she takes out three billboards just outside of town that call out the chief of police, played by Woody.
I know it’s only March, but this has a chance to be one of the best trailers of the year. I mean, this is why trailers exist. I knew nothing about this movie a few days ago, and now I can’t f**king wait for it to come out.
In addition to Woody and McDormand, you also have Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage and Abbie Cornish. It doesn’t look like an official release date has been announced, but it’s expected to come out later this year.
Check out the synopsis and trailer below…
“A darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.”
