Peter Jackson is back for more Tolkein, Martin McDonagh is back with Colin Farrell and Ang Lee puts 3D through its paces.

Seven Psychopaths

In a sentence:
Martin McDonagh’s follow up to ‘In Bruges’ is a Tarantino-esque tale about a drunken Irish screenwriter, played by Colin Farrell, who gets tangled up with the mob in LA.

Why we’re excited:
Mainly for the cast. Farrell is backed up by a who’s who of off-the-wall American character actors, including Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Tom Waits and Harry Dean Stanton, plus a fluffy shih tzu called Bonny.

Who’ll love it?
Language lovers, you’ll get a kick out of the sharp script. Film lovers, you’ll enjoy the movie in-jokes. Everyone will appreciate watching some first-rate actors at their comic best.
