A red band trailer has been released for Kill Me Three Times, a dark new action comedy starring Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek).
In the movie Pegg plays an assassin who is hired to kill a man’s wife, but quickly discovers that he isn’t the only one trying to eliminate his target. It also stars Alice Braga (City of God, Elysium), Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire, Strike Back), Teresa Palmer (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Warm Bodies), Callan Mulvey (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 300: Rise of an Empire), Luke Hemsworth (The Anomaly, The Reckoning), and Bryan Brown (The Thorn Birds, Gorillas in the Mist).
You can read a synopsis and check out the red band trailer for Kill Me Three Times below. The trailer is NSFW obviously, due to some naughty words and violence. The only specks of nudity—seen on postcards in the international trailer also included below—are blurred out in this, the red band trailer. Because our precious, fragile little eyes cannot handle such things here in the States.
A mercurial assassin (Simon Pegg) discovers he isn’t the only person trying to kill the siren (Alice Braga) of a sun-drenched surfing town. In this darkly comedic thriller, the hitman finds himself unraveling three tales of mayhem, murder, blackmail and revenge.
Kill Me Three Times is written by James McFarland, his first and only writing credit to date, and directed by Kriv Stenders, whose previous credits include The Illustrated Family Doctor, Blacktown, Boxing Day, Dark Frontier, and Red Dog.
The movie will be released by Magnet Releasing on iTunes and video on demand services beginning on March 26, 2015, and in limited theaters starting on April 10, 2015.
Movies Pegg has written and starred in include Spaced, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, and movies he’s only starred in include Mission: Impossible III, The Adventures of Tintin, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, A Fantastic Fear of Everything, Star Trek Into Darkness, Hector and the Search for Happiness, and most recently, the Oscar-nominated animated feature The Boxtrolls.
