The First Trailer For War On Everyone Has Arrived

John Michael McDonagh has established himself as a writer-director to be reckoned with so much so, that his third movie has taken him across the pond from Ireland, to New Mexico, to wage War On Everyone with Michael Pena and Alexander Skarsgard. What’s more, we now have a trailer to preview the finished product.

War On Everyone has been moving through the festival circuit for some months, and was characterised by our own Matt Donato, at this year’s SXSW, as a pitch-black, nihilistic riot. Such praise indicates that this movie promises the full John Michael McDonagh experience – despite the relocated setting, and the absence of stalwart collaborator, Brendan Gleeson.

“Award-winning writer-director of The Guard & Calvary, John Michael McDonagh crosses the globe for his much-anticipated third film, a jet-black action comedy starring Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and Theo James. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Terry Monroe (Skarsgård) and Bob Bolaño (Peña) are 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? 
War On Everyone stars Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and Theo James. Joining in supporting roles are Tessa Thompson, Malcolm Barrett, Caleb Landry Jones, Paul Reiser, Stephanie Sigman and David Wilmot

The unapologetic nature of McDonagh’s vitriol, combined with the chemistry between the two leads is the big draw here, and the trailer itself confirms that nobody escapes the filmmaker’s laser-guided satire. Whether this spin on the buddy-cop movie formula is helped or hindered by a release in the same year as The Nice Guys, however, will become clear when War On Everyone arrives in UK theatres on September 30th, 2016.
