StudioCanal has released a new UK trailer & poster for Ben Wheatley’s (Kill List, High-Rise) upcoming actioner Free Fire. The film “tells the story of an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Set in a colorful yet gritty 1970s Boston, Free Fire opens with Justine, a mysterious American businesswoman, and her wise-cracking associate Ord arranging a black-market weapons deal in a deserted warehouse between IRA arms buyer Chris and shifty South African gun runner Vernon. 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.”
Cillian Murphy, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Michael Smiley, Sharlto Copley, Jack Reynor, Sam Riley and Noah Taylor star. The film is scheduled to hit theatres April 21, 2017.
