London — Chiwetel Ejiofor will be honored at the British Independent Film Awards on Dec. 6. He will receive the Richard Harris Award, which recognizes an outstanding contribution to British film by an actor.
Jared Harris, Harris’ son, commented: “Although the recipients of this award have all been embraced by the establishment, they all came from outside it, fought their way in on the strength of their talent, claimed their place and changed the status quo: a journey that describes Chiwetel’s career perfectly. His talent is immense, it has brought him deserved worldwide recognition, and he is in his prime.”

A great cast doesn’t guarantee a great movie (just look at Black Mass), but it certainly never hurts. And John Hillcoat‘s Triple 9 has got a fantastic one.

Australian director John Hillcoat doesn’t step behind the lens too often, but when he does, it’s worth standing up and taking notice. As the filmmaker behind The Proposition, a big-screen rendition of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, and the star-studded Lawless, Hillcoat has established an impressive body of work over the past decade or so, and he’ll be hoping that soon-to-be-released heist thriller Triple 9 adds another feather to his cap.
Orbiting around a tight-knit crew of cops who won’t hesitate to get their hands dirty, the moniker Triple 9 is actually police code for ‘officer down,’ and that’s exactly the stunt the corrupt law enforcers set out to stage in order to pull off a seemingly impossible heist. Wedged in between a rock and a hard place, today’s rip-roaring new trailer showcases the involvement of the Russian mob, with some of the most »

With a cast made up of Casey Affleck, Kate Winslet, Chiwtel Ejiofor, Aaron Paul, Clifton Collins Jr., Gal Gadot, Norman Reeds, Anthony Mackie, and Woody Harrelson , John Hillcoat’s (The Road) Triple 9 is already one of the most promising movies of 2016. The crime thriller follows a group of dirty cops who are blackmailed by the Russian mob in pulling off an impossible heist, one that involves the murder of a rookie police officer. A new international trailer has come our way, and this really should be on your must watch list for next year. Not only does it have one 2016’s best ensemble cast (that we know of so far), but Hillcoat has a fantastic track record with only three feature films (The Proposition, The Road, and Lawless) under his belt. This incredibly tense affair promises that won’t be changing anytime soon. Triple 9 comes our way on »

Read More: Watch: Crooked Cops Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson Get Gruesome in Nsfw 'Triple 9' Trailer Violence, crooks, greed and deceit have been at the core of all of John Hillcoat's features ("The Proposition," "Lawless," etc.), so it was only a matter of time until the Australian filmmaker took on the heist movie, a genre tailor-made to his dark sensibilities. Based on a Black List script by Matt Cook, "Triple 9" follows a crew of dirty cops who are blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute an impossible heist. The only way to pull it off is to manufacture a "999," police code for "officer down," but their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the entire attack.

We've been enormous fans of The Proposition and The Road director John Hillcoat and judging by the sheer volume of high end talent starring in his upcoming heist thriller Triple 9, we're not the only ones.

The wait has been a little long for John Hillcoat's "Triple 9," particularly since it was originally slated to open this fall, but when the first trailer dropped last month, it blew some heads off. Extremely violent, gritty, and intense, few were prepared for what Hillcoat had put together, and now a fresh U.K. promo is here with all new footage, and while it's not quite red band, it's got enough spark you might not need your morning cup of coffee.

Aside from perhaps the Coen brothers’ latest feature, one of the most-anticipated films coming in the first two months of next year is Triple 9, the latest drama from The Proposition, The Road, and Lawless director John Hillcoat. We got a gritty red band trailer, but now a ever so slightly tamer U.K. trailer has arrived, showing off more enticing footage.
Starring Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Gal Gadot, Teresa Palmer and Clifton Collins, Jr., the Matt Cook-scripted story follows a group of crooked cops planning a major heist. Check out the U.K. trailer below, ahead of a February release there on the same day as the U.S., along with the domestic poster.

Twenty-five years ago, costume designer Margot Wilson was a student living in Paris when she picked up a roll of red, moire silk fabric during a shopping trip to Milan. She didn’t know why, or what for; she wasn’t even a costume designer then, just a talented young fashion grad from East Sydney Tech on a six-month scholarship to France. When it was time to go home, she took the beautiful roll of fabric back down under with her.
Fast forward three decades and a couple of dozen films later (including Lantana, Bran Nue Dae and Lawless), and Wilson has finally found a screen role for her magnificent weave – on Oscar winner Kate Winslet in the film adaptation of Rosalie Ham’s bestselling novel, The Dressmaker. “I’ve been carrying that roll of fabric around forever,” laughs Wilson, who designed all of Winslet’s costumes in the movie. »

Sliff has a robust schedule full of independent and foreign cinema along with some mainstream affair like Legend starring Tom Hardy and some possible future Oscar contenders like Carol. However, since we are a horror website, we are going to highlight some films that should definitely be on your radar!
