Another Midnight Madness entry, this hugely anticipated flick sees In Bruges writer-director Martin McDonagh reteam with Colin Farrell for a sweary, meta-textual, blood-soaked comedy thriller set in Hollywood. Farrell, as a writer called Martin who’s working on a script called Seven Psychopaths, heads a mouthwatering cast that includes Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell (who both worked with McDonagh on his stage play, A Behanding In Spokane), Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, and Olga Kurylenko. Expect the best dialogue this side of Tarantino, and enough cuss-words to fill up a swear jar.
When will we see it in the UK? December 7.
Paging Planet Weird: the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer team up with an all-star cast – Hanks! Berry! Weaving! Grant! Sturgess! – for this multi-layered adaptation of David Mitchell’s book, which spans the centuries. The early word is bonkers but brilliant. When they’re on form, there’s nobody quite like the Wachowskis (and Tykwer), and this could be their (and Tykwer’s) best film since The Matrix (and Run Lola Run).
