When Jeff and I went to see Logan on Thursday night, one of the many trailers that played before the film was this red band one for Free Fire. Free Fire is an action comedy, one that I think is meant to satirize the ultra violent heist films of the 90s and early aughts. Seriously, there are parts of this trailer that should make Guy Ritchie cringe.
That said, this trailer is also about a minute too long. At first, everyone in the theater thought it was kind of funny but then, around the two minute mark, the yawns started to kick in. “Are they just going to shoot at each other for the entire trailer?” someone asked.
The answer is yes. And you know what? The trailer probably doesn’t do Free Fire justice because this movie was directed by Ben Wheatley and I’m still having dreams inspired by his oddly hypnotic A Field in England. I’ll follow him anywhere!
Free Fire has a March 31st release date in the UK and an April 21st release date in the States.
Anyway, here’s the red band trailer for Free Fire!
