Crime thrillers with all-star casts can go either way, sometimes being great and occasionally feeling like a waste of time. TRIPLE 9 definitely has one of the best ensemble casts to be seen in any recent trailer. It features Oscar-nominees Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet and Casey Affleck, along with Aaron Paul, Gal Gadot, Norman Reedus, and Anthony Mackie. It’s directed by John Hillcoat (LAWLESS), who normally utilizes Guy Pearce, though he’s one of the few actors apparently not starring in this production. If this works, it could be a great showcase for Casey Affleck, who is one of those actors we never seem to see enough of. Check out the new trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

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 it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down.” Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.
