With the release of Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire just on the horizon, a pair of new clips have been released for the psychedelic looking film. If you have yet to see any kind of footage or anything at all on the guns a blazin’ movie, do yourself a favor look up the trailers, and give them the watch the deserve. Just after this post.
Anyway, the film is set in Boston in the ’70s and follows a mysterious American business woman (Brie Larson) and her wise-cracking associate (Armie Hammer) as they’re arranging a black market weapons deal with an IRA arms dealer and shifty South African gun runner, played by Cillian Murphy and Sharlto Copley. But what starts as a friendly exchange soon turns into a full-on battle royale where it’s every man, or woman, for themselves. Now, if that synopsis isn’t enough for you to get excited, then I don’t know what the hell is.
Since the moment I saw the first trailer for this film, I’ve been over-the-moon excited for it. So much so that it not only, and quite easily I may add, made my top 10 most anticipated for this year, but it’s one of the few movies I have no doubt will also rank in on my top 10 favorites of the year. Yeah, I’m that kind of excited. And now, in just a matter of days, I will finally get the opportunity to watch the film. F**k yes.
As I mentioned above, a pair of new clips for the film have been released, giving the audience, who (for some odd reason) may not be on board yet, to see the vibe of the movie. Ben Wheatley is a hell of a director, one who can capture a specific tone and tell a tight story very well. His previous film High-Rise did exactly that, and I have no doubt Free Fire will as well.
What do you think of Free Fire? Did the trailers get you interested? Will you be heading to the theaters to watch it? Hitting theaters this weekend on April 21st, 2017, Free Fire stars stars Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, and Jack Reynor.
Set in a colorful yet gritty 1970s Boston, Free Fire opens with Justine (Oscar® winner Brie Larson), a mysterious American businesswoman, and her wise-cracking associate Ord (Armie Hammer) arranging a black-market weapons deal in a deserted warehouse between IRA arms buyer Chris (Cillian Murphy) and shifty South African gun runner Vernon (Sharlto Copley). What starts as a polite if uneasy exchange soon goes south when tensions escalate and shots are fired, quickly leading to a full-on Battle Royale where it’s every man (and woman) for themselves.
