Need a reason why John Hillcoat's Triple 9 is one of the most anticipated movies of 2016? Well here's ten of them: Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Clifton Collins Jr., Gal Gadot, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Mackie, Teresa Palmer, Aaron Paul and Norman Reedus. That the cop thriller actually looks pretty darn good (despite some middling early reviews) is just one more reason to be excited.
Affleck takes the lead on this one, playing a rookie cop who becomes a target of crooked cops looking to pull of an impossible heist. To do it, they'll need to distract the police force with a "triple 9", code for an officer down.
The latest trailer not only offers glimpses of new footage, but brief interviews with some of the starry cast. Triple 9 hits theaters this week, February 26th. You can also check out some new clips and the entire score by Atticus Ross (The Social Network), courtesy of Thompson on Hollywood.
