Read More: Watch: Vinnie Chase Makes His Directorial Debut In Cameo-Packed 'Entourage' Trailer Sweet Bruce Dern is probably the least menacing actor in Hollywood, which makes him the perfect bully victim in this exclusive clip from "Cut Bank." The film features an all-star cast including Liam Hemsworth, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton and, as seen above, Dern. Directed by Matt Shakman, the film is billed as an "all-American thriller," but based on the cast, the clip and the fact that the Shakman has previously worked on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," we're guessing the film is closer to a Coen Brothers-esque dark comedy rather than, say, anything starring Liam Neeson.

Despite an off-color performance by Simon Pegg as a psychopath with a smile, Kill Me Three Times wastes a perfectly good ensemble cast on a crime caper that lacks motivation, purpose and surprise. Not only that, but Kriv Stenders’ Australian thriller begs the question on everyone’s mind – there’s really another f*cking Hemsworth brother? Wait, that’s just me? Sorry, right.
The real question on everyone’s mind is how do you waste such a charmingly devilish performance by Pegg on more of the same colorful dramatics that everyone has been attempting to recreate since Pulp Fiction? Australia may be a beautiful oasis, and Stenders sure shows off those crystal-clear Aussie beaches whenever he and cinematographer Geoffrey Simpson get a chance, but you can only dazzle an audience with shimmering blue waters and clay-toned gulches for so long.

Alien horror thriller short Welcome To Willits: After Sundown is screening at this year’s SXSW festival in the Midnight Short competition. But it already has a bright future as director Trevor Ryan is planning a feature-length adaptation and has Teresa Palmer signed up for one of the lead roles. He probably didn’t have too much trouble securing her services, as she’s married to the short’s star, Mark Webber, who will return for the film. Welcome To Willits (it may lose the After Sundown bit for the adaptation), was written by Ryan’s brother Tim and finds Webber as Brock, a man waiting in an isolated Northern California cabin for his friend to complete a drug deal. He becomes increasingly more desperate and paranoid that aliens are heading his way to attack and abduct him again. Is he just a lunatic? Well, he is in a cabin in the woods. »

Australian media have reported that the production will shoot in one of three Australian states: Queensland, New South Wales or Victoria. Producer, Bill Mechanic told Variety that the destinations have not yet been pinned down.
“We are absolutely targeted to shoot in Australia, however we haven’t yet scouted locations so are unsure which states we’ll make use of. Most likely more than one of the three [states], but we haven’t even begun to narrow the process yet,” Mechanic said.
The film is based on the life of Desmond T. Doss, the first conscientious objector to win the Congressional Medal of Honor for saving dozens of soldiers during the Battle of Okinawa while serving as a medic. Andrew Garfield is set to portray Doss, who was a Seventh »

There is no Australian release date yet for the comedy thriller scripted by James McFarland, which stars Simon Pegg as an assassin who encounters a group of increasingly violent locals, together with Alice Braga, Luke Hemsworth, Teresa Palmer and Sullivan Stapleton.
The gap between the Us and Australian release raises the prospect the film will be susceptible to online piracy, which has recently blighted Wyrmwood: Road to the Dead, The Little Death and John Doe: Vigilante.
But producer Tania Chambers tells If, .We are looking forward to as many people as possible seeing our film. We continue to believe that some people understand that piracy doesn't support creative people to get our stories to Aussies and the world. »

Insanity, betrayal and a lot of bad people in the Australian black comedy Kill Me Three Times starring Simon Pegg and Teresa Palmer.

Good folks. Bad deeds. I have to give credit where credit is due. A24 has whipped up some solid posters for the crime thriller Cut Bank (see the trailer), co-starring Teresa Palmer and Liam Hemsworth as some small town people who get mixed up with "good folks" and "bad deeds". Whenever a studio actually releases artistic posters it's worth pointing out because it's still a unique decision, and I still like seeing these. The eye-glasses poster below is an obvious riff on the classic Straw Dogs poster but I quite like the way it looks, along with the bloody mailbox. These make me more interested in the film than any floating heads design. Here's the two new posters for Matt Shakman's Cut Bank, both released officially by A24 Films: You can also watch the first official trailer for Cut Bank here, for those interested in seeing this film.

A mercurial assassin (Simon Pegg) discovers he isn’t the only person trying to kill the siren (Alice Braga) of a sun-drenched surfing town. In this darkly comedic thriller, the hitman finds himself unraveling three tales of mayhem, murder, blackmail and revenge.
Kill Me Three Times is set for release April 10th in the States and features a cast that also includes Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire), Alice Braga (Elysium), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Bryan Brown (Australia), Callan Mulvey (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Luke Hemsworth (The Reckoning).

Instead of using star Liam Hemsworth to sell the drama Cut Bank, A24 has released two very different posters utilizing two very different styles. The first one-sheet takes on the look and tone of a 1970s thriller. The second piece of art weighs heavily to the left of that, evoking memories of Norman Rockwell.
Liam Hemsworth stars as Dwayne McLaren in Cut Bank, a young man who dreams of  escaping small town life with his girlfriend Cassandra (Teresa Palmer). When Dwayne witnesses an awful crime, he tries to leverage a bad situation into a scheme to get rich quickly but he finds that fate and an unruly accomplice are working against him. Thrust into the middle of a police investigation spearheaded by the local sheriff (John Malkovich), everything goes from bad to worse in this all-American thriller.
Simon Pegg stars as a professional hitman in the upcoming action-comedy "Kill Me Three Times." After mucking up a job, Pegg's character is forced to do for himself what he typically does for other people: clean up the ensuing mess. Based on the red band trailer that dropped today, it's unclear whether Pegg's character is any good at his job. What we do know, however, is that the magnificent handlebar mustache he sports throughout the film should have received top billing alongside Pegg. "Kill Me Three Times" will be available on VOD and for digital download March 26. A theatrical release will follow on April 10.
