Superb First Trailer For Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

The acclaimed Irish playwright turned filmmaker, whose work has always been a profanity-laced bitter cocktail of tragedy and comedy, has turned his lens toward Middle America for a story of small town folks making a series of increasingly poor decisions.

Anything with McDonagh's name on it is something to seek out, and this movie looks like it isn't going to be any different. "My daughter Angela was murdered seven months ago", McDormand deadpans in the trailer. But the town does not take too kindly to her confrontation nor do the police. It's been weeks since her daughter was brutally raped and murdered, and the local police force in Ebbing, Missouri don't have a single perp to show for all their efforts. One thing leads to another and pretty soon there's more violence and all kinds of property destruction as the whole town starts picking sides. They are talking about Marty's latest project.

While Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is quite clearly gunning for 2017's longest title, it may also just have the year's funniest trailer. It's delivered by Christopher Walken to Colin Farrell's Marty, McDonagh's screenwriter stand-in in the film. The Irish playwright has been absent from the big screen since 2008, but that's finally about to change this year thanks to "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

The movie is set to be release this coming autumn, although no fixed date has thus far been announced. The all-star cast doesn't hurt either, with McDormand, Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage and Lucas Hedges, among others.
