Aaron Paul, Kate Winslet, Norman Reedus, Chewitel Ojiafor, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Mackie and Casey Affleck. That’s a pretty stellar cast of interesting actors. And, if you look at the trailer, you will notice that they are playing against type to some extent which may make Triple 9 a must see movie.
Triple 9, by the way, stands for police code 999 which means officer down. A crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to commit a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999 to divert the entire force away from their activities. However, their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering an action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.
Props to Kate Winslet who couldn’t be more different than her usual persona judging by this trailer. The movie looks like it will be out in the US around February, 2016.
And what can go wrong when you have dirty cops and Russian mobsters mixing it up. Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
