Violence, crooks, greed and deceit have been at the core of all of John Hillcoat’s features (“The Proposition,” “Lawless,” etc.), so it was only a matter of time until the Australian filmmaker took on the heist movie, a genre tailor-made to his dark sensibilities. The film features a star-studded ensemble, including Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie and Norman Reedus.

Based on a Black List script by Matt Cook, the official synopsis reads: “When a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist, they realise the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down”. The chaos that ensues when a police officer is shot in the line of duty is just the diversion they’ll need to do the job, but whether they have the will to kill one of their own is an entirely different matter, triggering a breakneck, action packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.”

British distributor eOne has dropped a new trailer featuring no shortage of guns and explosions. The movie opens in the UK on February 9. Open Road Films is handling the U.S. release on February 19.
