KXIP vs KKR Live Score

In this age of teasers announcing teasers announcing trailers, it's nearly a miracle to come across a fuss-free #trailer that is just so good you'd even watch that for 2 hours instead of the movie itself.

I truly wish I could include the newly released redband trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in this post, but we are attached to a family newspaper, after all, and more than that, I value my job. "My daughter Angela was murdered seven months ago", McDormand deadpans in the trailer.

Bloodshed, high school groin-kicking, F-bombs, oh my!

His 2008 dark comedy In Bruges topped our list of the best comedies of the century so far and now writer-director Martin McDonagh is finally returning five years after Seven Psychopaths with a new film.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also stars Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Lucas Hedges, Željko Ivanek, Caleb Landry Jones, Clarke Peters, Samantha Weaving, John Hawkes, and Peter Dinklage.

Here's the official summary, from IMDb.

Mildred Hayes (McDormand) plays the foul-mouthed mother who erects three billboards questioning the police and in particular, William Willoughby (Harrelson), the local police chief.

When Willoughby's No. 2 Officer Dixon (Rockwell) - an immature mama's boy with a penchant for violence - gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is exacerbated.

Twitter commentators are delighted by McDormand's performance in the trailer, from attacking a dentist with his own drill to kneeing some teens where the sun don't shine.

It's certainly a roundabout crime-solving romp with a feminist twist. Let us know in the comments!
