Director John Hillcoat’s heist drama Triple 9 with an all-star cast released a new trailer Tuesday.
A crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down.” Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.
The film stars Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Gal Gadot, Teresa Palmer and Clifton Collins Jr.
Collins Jr. talked about what Hillcoat brings to the table as a director.
“He’s the kind of guy that likes realism. If you see a car chase that is supposed to be 110, 120 (mph), there is damn good chance that they’re really going 120 (mph). That is how Hillcoat likes to run, I really respect him and love him for it,” said Collins Jr. to Monkeys Fighting Robots.
