Want to see Oscar winner Frances McDormand verbally eviscerate Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell? The red-band, expletive-laced trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri will satisfy that need.

Written and directed by Martin McDonagh (Seven Psychopaths, In Bruges), the film stars McDormand as Mildred Hayes, a grieving mother who makes a bold decision after months with no leads on her daughter’s killer: she takes on the local law enforcement by putting up brow-raising billboards directed at the police chief, William Willoughby (Harrelson), just outside her town.

“The time it took you to get out here, whining like a b—-, Willoughby, some other poor girl’s probably out there being butchered right now,” she says. The intense topic is balanced with humor as Mildred soon grapples with the entire town, including a tussle with her dentist, a confrontation with officer “f—head” Dixon (Rockwell), and a little vigilante justice.

“This doesn’t put an end to s—,” she shouts at a reporter, promising “this is just the f—ing start.”

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also stars Manchester by the Sea breakout Lucas Hedges, Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Abbie Cornish (the RoboCop reboot), Željko Ivanek (Seven Psychopaths), Caleb Landry Jones (Get Out), Clarke Peters (The Wire), Samantha Weaving (Monster Trucks), and John Hawkes (American Gangster).
