Martin McDonagh Promises Plenty of Absurd Dark Comedy in ‘Seven Psychopaths’

In Bruges writer/director Martin McDonagh has carved out quite a niche in dark comedy with that film as well his several plays that first brought him fame. His latest film Seven Psychopaths where a “dog borrowing goes wrong” seems to live up to McDonagh’s absurd, existentialist humor with plenty of death hanging overhead. We called out the film’s first trailer in a piece for we wrote for the Nerdist for relying too heavily on it’s all star cast rather than laugh out loud moments, but this latest red band trailer makes us want to take back what we said. 

However, a film starring Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, Tom Waits, and more doesn’t hurt. Seven Psychopaths is set to release Oct. 12th.
