Icon Film Distribution have released the trailer for War on Everyone starring Alexnder Skarsgard and Michael Pena but be warned it comes with a warning.
The trailer which is full of profanity, drug use, and violence, will have you laughing over your soggy lunches this afternoon.
Coming from award winning British writer-director, John McDonagh and starring The Legend of Tarzan’s Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña, War on Everyone is about two corrupt cops who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. Things take a sinister turn, however, when they try to intimidate someone who is more dangerous than they are. Or is he?
Known for his distinctively witty sensibility and confrontational humour, McDonagh previously wrote and directed the acclaimed drama Calvary, starring Brendan Gleeson, and offbeat comedy The Guard, also starring Gleeson alongside Don Cheadle, which became a worldwide sleeper hit.
WAR ON EVERYONE stars Alexander Skarsgård (Tarzan, Melancholia, True Blood), Michael Peña (Ant-Man, Fury, End of Watch) and Theo James(Insurgent, Divergent). Joining in supporting roles are Tessa Thompson (Selma, Dear White People), Malcolm Barrett (The Hurt Locker, My Best Friend’s Girl), Caleb Landry Jones (X Men: First Class), Paul Reiser (Concussion, Whiplash), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre, Miss Bala) and David Wilmot (The Guard, Calvary, ‘71).
The buddy crime caper is produced by Chris Clark (Legend, Calvary, The Guard), Flora Fernandez Marengo (Calvary, The Guard, The Betrayal), and co-produced by Elizabeth Eves (Calvary) for Reprisal Films. Phil Hunt (Belle) and Compton Ross (Trishna) also produce for Head Gear Films, with the support of the BFI Film Fund. The UK release announcement follows War on Everyone’s world premiere at the 66th annual Berlin Film Festival and official selection at the 2016 SXSW Festival.
War on Everyone comes to UK cinemas September 30.
