War on Everyone opens today so we thought we’d bring you the trailer to wet your appetite. The film has pretty much flown under the radar against the deluge of summer blockbusters but is, by all accounts, a complete hoot.
Written and directed by John Michael McDonagh, who penned the couldn’t be more Irish The Guard (2011) and Calvary (2014), War on Everyone (great title) is the darkly comic tale of two corrupt cops in New Mexico 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. Starring Alexander Skarsgård (who looks to be having way more fun than he did in the dull The Legend of Tarzan) and the increasingly hot Michael Peña (Ant-Man, The Martian), we’ll have a review for you asap.
War on Everyone is out now.
