The code "Triple 9" is used for an officer down. This heist movie, directed by John Hillcoat and starring a dozen Hollywood standouts -- including Casey Affleck, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Mackie, Norman Reedus, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, to name a few -- follows a group of corrupt cops and criminals who plan the murder of a police officer to pull off a major heist.
The trailer shows as much sex, violence, bad words, and bare boobs and booty as you'd expect from a crime thriller red band trailer. It starts with Woody Harrelson chiding fellow officer Casey Affleck that his job is not to make a f--king difference, it's to "out monster the monster and get home at the end of the night. »

We were beginning to wonder when we would see something from John Hillcoat’s much anticipated new crime thriller Triple 9, but the day – and the violent, Red Band trailer – has arrived, and looks great. Take a look below. Matt Cook wrote the script, which finds a crew of dirty cops blackmailed by the Russian mob into pulling off a near-impossible heist. In order to distract attention away from their complicated crime, they look to create an “officer down” situation – hence the code number - setting up an unsuspecting rookie (Casey Affleck) to die. He, however, has other ideas, and goes on the attack.And Affleck is just one element of a cast bursting with talent. Check out that roster: Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Norman Reedus, Teresa Palmer, Aaron Paul, Gal Gadot, Clifton Collins Jr…. The list goes on. We’re almost surprised the film isn »
This little slice of nastiness from John Hillcoat (The Proposition, The Road), a director who knows his way around balancing bleak and heart, looks to be pushing the police action boundaries of Sicario and Training Day as far as it can go. In fact, this film was originally set to open against Villeneuve's prestigious hitman drama, but was recently pushed back to February 19, 2016.Triple 9 -- police code for officer down -- has elements of the militarization of police, the war of attrition with crime and violence (severed heads abound), and everyone thrown into the blender. Props to whoever came up with the kids 'this little piggie' to score this trailer, because it is damn effective with the imagery on display. When a group of corrupt...

Australian director John Hillcoat simply doesn't make enough movies. Event he bad ones (looking at you Lawless) are worth a second look so a new Hillcoat movie is definitely something to get excited about and the first look at Triple 9 suggests good things to come.
The movie, which stars Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Clifton Collins, Jr., Michael K. Williams, Teresa Palmer and Gal Gadot, includes a Russian gang, crooked cops and a plan to distract the police force at a 999 (code for "officer down") while the heist goes down across town.
Admittedly, I didn't get any of that from the trailer but man, it's a kinetic two minutes of action and if it's any indication about the movie to come, we'r [Continued ...] »

As a filmmaker, John Hillcoat is not prone making happy-go-lucky movies. This is the man behind the post-apocalyptic bummer The Road, the gritty western The Proposition, and the bootlegging drama Lawless. Now he.s bringing his bleak aesthetic to the cop drama with Triple 9, and the new red-band trailer shows off a star-studded cast and a brutal, vicious sensibility. When they call this new trailer from Yahoo "red-band," they certainly mean it, and they sure as hell earn that designation. Even though it.s only a few minutes long, this is not for the faint of heart, and if this is how Hillcoat and company are trying to sell their movie to as wide an audience as possible, you have to wonder what the they left out. A gritty cop drama is one thing, but this preview of Triple 9 is a whole other level. We.re talking severed »

An idealistic police officer (Casey Affleck) tries to survive in a landscape filled with brutal criminals and corrupt cops in the first red band trailer for Triple 9. We haven't heard much about this action-thriller since actress Gal Gadot sent out set photos from June 2014. Today, we also have the first poster, featuring these masked bandits trying to pull off a heist. This footage does include nudity and R-rated language, so watch at your own risk.
The story follows a group of dirty cops who plan to kill a young Lapd officer to divert attention away from a daring heist they're perpetrating across town. The title Triple 9 refers to police code indicating that an officer needs immediate assistance. Casey Affleck plays Chris Allen, the officer these dirty cops plan on killing, although he ends up surviving and fighting back.
Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet also stars as one of the »
You're not ready for the trailer for Triple 9. Yes, it's packed full of celebrities like Kate Winslet, Woody Harrelson, Norman Reedus, Anthony Mackie, Teresa Palmer, Aaron Paul, Gal Gadot, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Casey Affleck, but there is also incredibly gnarly stuff. The fact that you have to enter in your birthday to watch the trailer should tip you off that this isn't your average gangster movie. In under three minutes, you'll see a bag of bloody teeth, decapitated heads strewn over a car hood, and even more that I don't want to spoil in case you're looking forward to it. The movie, directed by John Hillcoat (Lawless), will be in theaters on Feb. 19. »

Mayhem rules in this trailer John Hillcoat's action-packed "Triple 9," which Open Road Films will open wide February 19. Open Road picked up domestic distribution rights early on and decided to give the film a wide 2016 release. "Triple 9" reunites "Out of the Furnace" co-stars Woody Harrelson and Casey Affleck as Sergeant Jeffrey Allen and rookie cop Chris Allen. "Out-monster the monster and get home at the end of the night," the uncle advises his nephew, who gets caught in a heist orchestrated by the Russian mob (including Kate Winslet) which involves pulling off a 999, which is police lingo for “officer down.” The mob's tricky maneuvers go awry when young Allen unexpectedly survives the attack intended to kill him. Anthony Mackie, Norman Reedus, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) also star. Written by Matt Cook, the movie was financed by Worldview and. »

Director John Hillcoat has yet to make a major box-office hit. The director behind Lawless, The Road, and the incredible 2005 western, The Proposition, makes bleak and brutal movies about the violent side of humanity. If this Triple 9 red band trailer is any indication, though, he may have finally brought his sensibility to a commercial project. Watch the Triple 9 Red […]

Read More: John Hillcoat's 'Triple Nine' Sets Fall 2015 Release Date After dropping out of "The Revenant" in 2011, "The Proposition" director John Hillcoat started work on the heist movie "Triple 9," which has just gotten its first gruesome red band trailer. The trailer features many of the faces in its star-studded cast, including Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie and Norman Reedus, and is packed with guns, sex and violent images. Maybe it's just the Woody Harrelson factor, but the tone also feels reminiscent of the first season of "True Detective." Whatever the case may be, the trailer promises a grisly, action-packed heist film. The movie is based on a Black List script from Matt Cook. The official synopsis reads: "In 'Triple 9', a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull »

Talk about your super violent cop/mob movies. The first trailer for crime thriller Triple 9 was released yesterday in all of its red band glory. Boasting an extremely impressive cast including Kate Winslet, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Norman Reedus, Anthony Mackie, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Aaron Paul, the film is helmed by The Road and Lawless director John Hillcoat with a script by Matt Cook. Here’s the synopsis:
A gang of criminals and corrupt cops plan the murder of a police officer in order to pull off their biggest heist yet across town.
While it’s hard to get a sense of story from the trailer, it sure gets across the vibe of the movie: violent insanity. The action looks thrilling, but most people are probably itching to see how all of these great actors are utilized and how they work off each other. It might not end up »

If there was ever a phrase to surmise the cinematic career of one John Hillcoat, it would be quality over quantity. Having helmed The Proposition, The Road, and Lawless across the last decade, the revered Australian director has cooked up enough adult-oriented dramas to keep us all on the edge of our seats, and it looks as though the filmmaker is remaining firmly in his wheelhouse for his next venture behind the camera: Triple Nine.
With a star-studded cast in tow, the upcoming feature will be a heist film in nature, one which, judging by the release of today’s trailer, boasts a tone and aesthetic that are almost unbearably dark. Centering on Casey Affleck’s do-gooder, the Matt Cook-scripted thriller charts the trials and tribulations that a group of crooked cops face when confronted by the Russian mob. Left with little choice, the officers then set about staging »

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Anthony Mackie are part of an ensemble cast in director John Hillcoat's (The Road) crime drama "Triple 9," alongside Casey Affleck, Kate Winslet, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus and others, in a story that revolves around an L.A. heist in which a group of thieves plan to kill a cop (a "Code 999" in police parlance) to divert authorities from their own crime scene across town. Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge. Ejiofor plays the role of the mastermind »

Heists — do they ever go right? The first trailer for John Hillcoat's dirty-cop thriller Triple 9 is here, and it's filled with shocking violence, artfully terrifying imagery, and a cast that includes [takes deep breath] Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Kate Winslet, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Norman Reedus, Aaron Paul, Gal Gadot, Teresa Palmer, and Clifton Collins Jr. And just to keep thing from getting too highbrow, there's even a creepy children's choir doing "This Little Piggy," because this is still an action-movie trailer released in 2015. »
