“We can’t all be nice girls,” her gun-toting character asserts.
A24 released the trailer Friday after “Free Fire” premiered as the first title in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto International Film Festival.
“Free Fire” centers around an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Larson portrays a woman who has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen and a gang selling them a stash of guns. But when shots are fired during the handover, complete pandemonium ensues.
“When everyone has a gun, no one is in control,” the trailer notes.
Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Jack Reynor, Sam Riley and Noah Taylor also star. Hammer is the wise-cracking associate to Larson’s mysterious American businesswoman; Murphy is an IRA arms buyer and Copley is South African gun runner.
Martin Scorsese is exec producing “Free Fire.” Wheatley is directing from a script he co-wrote with Amy Jump.
Andrew Starke is producing. Additional executive producers include Sikelia’s Emma Tillinger-Koskoff, Reno Antoniades, Film4’s David Kosse and Sam Lavender, along with Ben Roberts and Lizzie Francke from the British Film Institute.
