Brie Larson gets gun crazy in red band trailer for Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire


Prolific British filmmaker Ben Wheatley does a little bit of everything. 2011’s psychological horror film Kill List had great nods to Wicker Man, 2012’s Sightseers was a sadly deranged and bleakly comic misfit romance, 2013’s A Field in England was a gripping bit of wiggy madness, and High-Rise centered on the malaise of the social order.

Wheatley’s back with a bang-up cast with Free Fire, which judging from this first trailer looks like a feature-length Mexican standoff. The film stars Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, and Jack Reynor.

Check out the red band trailer for Free Fire below.

Ooh, guns, guns, guns. Come on, Sal–the Tigers are playing *baddabop* TO-NIGHT… and I never miss a game.

Here’s the synopsis for Free Fire from IMDb:

Set in Boston in 1978, a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two gangs turns into a shootout and a game of survival.

Free Fire will be coming out some time in 2017 from A24. It recently kicked out this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Check out a poster for the movie below.
