When a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist, they realize the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down”. The chaos that ensues when a police officer is shot in the line of duty is just the diversion they’ll need to do the job, but whether they have the will to kill one of their own is an entirely different matter. Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck, action packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.
It’s stellar cast includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Clifton Collins, Jr., Gal Gadot, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Mackie, Teresa Palmer, Aaron Paul, and Norman Reedus.
We missed when this trailer dropped back in October, but since it’s releasing in February we should make as many people aware as possible how amazing this film looks. Here’s also the UK green band trailer for the film as well from November, giving a bit more context. Triple 9 has hints of Heat, Sicario and Training Day, which could make it a hybrid crime film we’ve been dying to see come together.
