If there's a case to be made that turning one's dark, twisted fantasies into plays and movies is good for the soul, Martin McDonagh is Exhibit A. The platinum-haired Irishman has given the world some breathtakingly black comedy, such as his 2003 play about a child serial killer The Pillowman and, as of Friday, the slightly lighter Seven Psychopaths. But if he's nursing a tortured soul, there was very little evidence of it when I interviewed him at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. more »
WATCH: Seven Psychopaths Is Even Funnier When Cats Stand In For Walken, Farrell, Rockwell, Harrelson & Waits

So, in the interest of strengthening the coffers of corporations everywhere, I think you should take the next half hour off and watch these very funny — I mean, cute — Seven Psychopaths parody trailers, PsychoCats, that feature cats instead of the cast, which includes Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson and Tom Waits. The deservedly anticipated film by Martin McDonagh opens on Friday. more »
With a little over a week before Martin McDonagh's slam-bang Seven Psychopaths opens in theaters, the fun is just starting. I caught the film at the Toronto International Film Festival and it's as much fun as this Red Band behind-the-scenes trailer suggests. Check out the verbal hijinks between Sam Rockwell and Colin Farrell that concludes with the former telling the latter: "I want to jump inside your pants."
There are few things more satisfying in this world than hearing Christopher Walken say the word "fuck." Yes, his now-classic Saturday Night Live declaration of "I've got a fever and the prescription is more cowbell" is one of them, but let's stay focused here. Walken and his co-star Colin Farrell let their filth flags fly in the Red Band trailer below for In Bruges director Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths. more »
While Daniel Craig is off channeling Edie Falco, Edie Falco will soon be channeling the Greek goddess Artemis in the big screen adaptation of Brit lit bestseller Gods Behaving Badly.
