'Seven Psychopaths' Trailer: Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, and Sam Rockwell Dognap from Woody Harrelson

In Bruges writer-director Martin McDonagh has returned to once again spray Colin Farrell down with enough enjoyably-comic criminality to cover up all the forgettable missteps and unconscionable remakes that came before and will inevitably follow. This time it's with Seven Psychopaths, in which McDonagh casts Farrell as a likable everyman/serial-dognapper who runs a little scam in which he, Christopher Walken, and Sam Rockwell abduct pets and return them for rewards. The otherwise-airtight operation comes into trouble when Farrell and Walken end up one day stealing away with the beloved Shih Tzu of a powerful mobster (Woody Harrelson), and if you've seen any kind of dark crime comedy before, you can pretty much imagine how things spiral out of control and into gunfire from there. Fellow psychopaths include Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, Abbie Cornish, and Tom Waits, here reuniting with his Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus co-star and snuggling with a bunny.

Have a look at the trailer below. It looks pretty entertaining, even if Chris Parnell did kind of already own the we-accidentally-got-a-mobster's-pooch genre with The Dogfather.
