'Triple 9' trailer teases a great cast and Heat-inspired action
Even months out from its Feb. 19 release date, John Hillcoat’s Triple 9 has a lot going for it. In addition to a (mostly dirty) crew of cops played by some pleasantly familiar faces — Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, and a buff-as-hell Casey Affleck — the heist movie also boasts some powerful actresses, a typical weak point for the genre.
As we see in the new UK trailer, Kate Winslet is looking fierce as the crime boss who ropes the cops into one last job, and it never hurts to have Diana Prince herself, Gal Gadot, along for the ride.
The teaser gives a better idea of the story than the debut red-band clip. The crew at the center of the plot plan to murder a fellow officer as a diversionary tactic for their next heist, but as is usually the case with these kinds of things, it doesn’t go exactly as planned.
