War on Everyone - Birdwell Chase and UK Premiere crawl sizzle reel

War on Everyone

Award-winning British writer-director John Michael McDonagh crosses the globe for his much-anticipated third film, a jet-black action comedy starring Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and Theo James.

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Terry Monroe (Skarsgård) and Bob Bolaño (Peña) are two corrupt cops who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. Things take a sinister turn, however, when they try to intimidate someone who is more dangerous than they are. Or is he?

Known for his distinctively witty sensibility and confrontational humour, McDonagh previously wrote and directed the acclaimed drama Calvary, starring Brendan Gleeson, and offbeat comedy The Guard, also starring Gleeson alongside Don Cheadle, which became a worldwide sleeper hit.

War On Everyone stars Alexander Skarsgård (Tarzan, Melancholia, True Blood), Michael Peña (Ant-Man, Fury, End of Watch) and Theo James (Insurgent, Divergent).

Joining in supporting roles are Tessa Thompson (Selma, Dear White People), Malcolm Barrett (The Hurt Locker, My Best Friend’s Girl), Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class), Paul Reiser (Concussion, Whiplash), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre, Miss Bala) and David Wilmot (The Guard, Calvary, ‘71).

War On Everyone opens in UK cinemas on Friday, October 7. To celebrate, we have a clip, featuring the Birdwell Chase, and highlights from the London premiere crawl.
