In 2008, writer/director/producer Martin McDonagh released In Bruges, starring Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Ralph Fiennes. Despite an underwhelming box office performance, the film found success among critics and as a cult favorite after its home format release. Four years later and McDonagh is back, once again teaming with Colin Farrell, for another black-dramedy, Seven Psychopaths.
McDonagh is aided in his efforts this round by an enormous ensemble cast that includes (in addition to Farrell) Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Christopher Walken, Harry Dean Stanton, Woody Harrelson, and Gabourey Sidibe, among others. Does Seven Psychopaths offer a movie experience that will be appealing to In Bruges faithfuls as well as casual moviegoers – so that the fan-favorite director can earn solid box office profits in addition to critical acclaim?
