A red band trailer for director Martin McDonagh‘s (In Bruges) dark comedy Seven Psychopaths has been released. The film follows a trio of dognappers (Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, and Christopher Walken) who steal the wrong shih tzu and end up running afoul of a psychotic gangster (Woody Harrelson). I actually think I slightly prefer the green band trailer, but the cast is still aces in this clip. Walken again steals the show with his genius looks/delivery, but there really doesn’t seem to be a weak link anywhere.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Tom Waits, Gabourey Sidibe, Abbie Cornish, and Olga Kurylenko. Seven Psychopaths opens on October 12th.

From Oscar-winning writer and director Martin McDonagh comes a star-studded, blood-drenched, black comedy. Marty (Colin Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay Seven Psychopaths. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration.
Billy (Sam Rockwell) is Marty’s best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary.
Hans (Christopher Walken) is Billy’s partner in crime. A religious man with a violent past. Charlie is the psychopathetic gangster whose beloved dog, Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie’s unpredictable, extremely violent and wouldn’t think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale.
