“Free Fire!” Brie Larson Is NOT A Nice Girl! Ben Wheatley’s Latest Cult Classic!

“We Can’t ALL Be Nice Girls…”

Brie Larson gets down and dirty in this new action thriller!

“Free Fire” Is About To Unload!

“Free Fire” is a new British action-comedy film directed by Ben Wheatley, starring Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer and Cillian Murphy.

First, check out the trailer!

I am SOLD on this for two reasons: first, what a great cast, and they are all clearly having a blast with this film!

Second, it’s because of the Director, Ben Wheatley!

Sure, this picture was taken in jest, but if you haven’t seen any of his films, are you missing out!

“Kill List” and “High Rise” are just two of his terrific movies: gritty, unconventional and wildly entertaining, and “Free Fire” looks to be another great action thriller for us to enjoy!

I love that Brie Larson is taking on wildly different roles post Oscar win: it will help her avoid the “Oscar curse” in my opinion, especially if she keeps working with great new Directors like Wheatley.

Here is a great article from “The Guardian” all about the movie:

And if you want to get a taste of his widely creative films, start here:

You can see the trailer for his “hit man horror” film here:

I have to say, I’m loving this trend in film – empowered Oscar-winning women kicking ass!

Here is the red band trailer for Charlize Theron’s new action thriller “Atomic Blonde!”

I can’t wait to see “Free Fire”!

  1. Reblogged this on johnrieber and commented:

    Open today in the US!

  2. Certainly one I’m hoping to see.

  3. I wasn’t a big fan of this one in all honesty (saw a preview screening a couple of weeks ago) it just wasn’t my type of thing. The characters spending majority of the film lying/crouching down.

  4. This is out here at the end of the month, and I am going to try to catch it at the cinema. Love the cast, and enjoy his films. I was going to buy ‘High-Rise’ but it is on TV here next week, so I will tape it instead. There is a Wheatley season on TV at the moment, with ‘Kill List’, ‘Sightseers’, and ‘Down Terrace’ all showing.
    Have you seen ‘Sightseers’ yet? I can’t recall if you have written about that one. I love it. So British.
    Best wishes, Pete/
