Read More: Watch: Casey Affleck, Anthony Mackie and Kate Winslet Face Off in Ultra-Violent 'Triple 9' Trailer "Out here, there is no good and there no bad." That might be true in the new trailer for "Triple 9," out in theaters next month, but there certainly seems to be enough room for greed, corruption, betrayal and murder. The latest from John Hillcoat, who has made quite a career documenting this gritty brand of depravity in films like "The Proposition," "The Road" and "Lawless," comes from a Black List script by Matt Cook that tells the story of a group of dirty cops who are blackmailed by the Russian mob to pull off an almost impossible heist. Their resolve is put to the test when they realize they must take the life of a fellow officer in order to pull it off. Hillcoat has also assembled a terrific ensemble cast here, »

After highlighting 50 films that are most certainly worth seeing this year, it’s time we venture into the unknown. While a multitude of 2016 previews simply regurgitate a list of dated releases, we’ve set out to focus on 100 films we’re genuinely looking forward to, regardless of their marketing budgets. While some might not have a release date — let alone any confirmed festival premiere — most have wrapped production and will likely debut at some point in 2016, so make sure to check back for updates over the next twelve months and beyond.
It should be noted that there are a number of films we’re greatly looking forward to, but whose release we aren’t confident about, including the next features from Claire Denis and Michael Haneke. (Rest assured, however, that we’ll have updates as they come in.)

Acclaimed Australian director John Hillcoat (The Proposition, The Road, Lawless) may be treading on familiar ground with his upcoming and gritty cop thriller Triple 9, but with a star-studded ensemble and intriguing story set-up in tow, the filmmaker may be serving up a rare cinematic treat within a a sub-genre that has witnessed its fair share of approaches.
It’s releasing soon, too, with Open Road Films setting sights for a theatrical release on February 26, and to garner excitement ahead of its debuts, a slew of character posters have arrived via IGN that spotlight both sides of the law. In case you haven’t deduced it for yourself, yes, Triple 9 tells the gripping tale of a corrupt band of law enforcers who aren’t shy about getting their hands dirty in exchange for a quick buck.
Thrusted into the center of this moral maelstrom is Casey Affleck’s rookie »
