Red-Band Trailer: McDonagh’s “Three Billboards”

“In Bruges” writer/director Martin McDonagh returns to screens this year with the oddly titled “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” which teams film legends Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell.

Part pitch black comedy and part drama, the story centers a woman (McDormand) who takes matters into her own hands to find justice, after her daughter is murdered, and the killer remains at large. She paints three signs leading into her town with a message for the revered chief of police (Harrelson).

Rockwell plays the chief’s second-in-command, an immature and violent mamma’s boy who becomes caught between the cops and the distraught mother as their anger at each other soon spills out into the town.

No specific date for the film’s release has been set.
