Watch: Frances McDormand is Fed Up and Foul-Mouthed In Fantastic 'Three Billboards' Trailer

Mar 23, 2017

If you want to see Oscar-winning actress Frances McDormand kick teens in the crotch and swear up a storm, then Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri looks like the movie for you.

The new movie from Oscar-winning writer/director Martin McDonagh (In BrugesSeven Psychopaths) dropped its first trailer, and it's the Red Band kind. Actually, it's hard to imagine how they'd even cut a Green Band trailer for this extremely profane movie. Take a @#%*&$# look:


When it comes out: TBD, but sometime this year

Who is in it: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, Abbie Cornish

What it is about: McDormand plays a woman infuriated by the fact that the local police haven't found her daughter's murderer. So she calls them out on their failure in three billboards outside her rural Missouri town, which in turn infuriates the authorities and pretty much everyone else in the area. Lots of swearing and teen kicking ensues as the matter escalates from there. Harrelson plays the chief of police while Rockwell has the role of his second in command.

How is the new trailer: Hilarious and awesome, and not just because it's mostly McDormand going around swearing a ton and kicking teens in the crotch. You can really get a sense of the dark comic tone that's not just a welcome return of McDonagh's wit but also can't help but seem reminiscent of the Coen Brothers. Primarily because of McDormand, who is a couple states south of Fargo this time around and a lot less polite. Personally, this just became my most anticipated movie of the year. 

What other people are saying:

"This is an early frontrunner for trailer of the year, and the film looks to be a tremendous showcase for McDormand’s talents." - Adam Chitwood, Collider

"Things escalate quickly in McDonagh’s stories and this movie looks hysterical and sad and unnerving. In other words, it looks like a Martin McDonagh movie." - Jacob Hall, /Film

"This looks like a marvelous, misanthropic extension of director Martin McDonagh’s usual style, chockablock with slapsticky violence (McDormand kicking a teen in his jewels is funny enough, but her turning around and kicking his female companion in the groin as well is somehow exponentially funnier), creative profanity, and funny little Coen-esque twists of fate." - Charles Bramesco, ScreenCrush
