    Set in Boston in 1978, a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two gangs turns into a shootout and a game of survival.

    Starring Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Sam Riley, and Enzo Cilenti. Scorsese has an Executive Producer credit. It's been picked up by A24. Expect it to premiere the fall festival circuit, but no hint on theatrical release yet. I'm suspecting a similar release schedule to High Rise.

    Although beautiful to look at, I was pretty disappointed in High-Rise -- hopefully this makes up for that, great premise.

    Looks fantastic. Wheatley is hit or miss for me (actually liked High Rise, didn't like Kill List) but this cast alone is worth it.

    This is cool. It's pretty light fare, especially following Wheatley's last, but it is a ton of fun.

    The first trailer for this came out sooo early. It's going to be almost a full year by the time this is released

    Yes!

    I love Wheatley so much, even if High Rise was a little, um, out there

    I didn't like it, pretty underwhelming

    I liked this, I appreciated how Tarantino-esque it was, which some seemed to not like, funny how that works
    Hammer and Copley were great I don't think I've heard Cillian's natural speaking voice before it's quite pleasant

    this was my first Wheatley, I really wanted to see High Rise in theaters but I never got the chance and then forgot about it

    Thank you and good night Prestigious

    I'm still confused that this is the same director as Kill List.

    Watch Kill List immediately and do not read anything about it

    A Field In England is brilliant but a subtle experience that leans on psychedelia and High Rise has a good film in there somewhere but Kill List is among my favorite movies of all time

    Guess I should watch Kill List - Also haven't seen anything from Wheatley before but all of his films have peaked my interest when hearing about them.
