From the twisted mind of Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (Seven Psychopaths, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) comes this wildly entertaining mix of dark comedy and crime thriller. Colin Farrell (Miami Vice) and Brendan Gleeson (The General) give career-best performances as Irish hitmen Ray and Ken, who have been ordered to cool their heels in the storybook city of Bruges (it’s in Belgium) after finishing a big job. But since hitmen make the worst tourists, they soon find themselves in a life-and-death struggle of comic proportions against one very angry crime boss (a foul-mouthed Ralph Fiennes, The Grand Budapest Hotel). Get ready for the outrageous and unpredictable fun you will have In Bruges—a trip chock-full of demented dialogue, spectacular shoot-outs and an explosive ending you won’t want to miss! The wonderful cast includes Clémence Poésy (Tenet), Thekla Reuten (The American), Ciarán Hinds (Munich) and Zeljko Ivanek (Hannibal).
Rated R for strong bloody violence, pervasive language and some drug use.
