“Those men that came for your father – did you see their faces?” Warner Bros has debuted the first official trailer for a thriller titled Those Who Wish Me Dead, the latest feature directed by writer / filmmaker Taylor Sheridan after he broke out as a director with Wind River a few years back. While reeling from the loss of three lives she failed to save in a fire, smoke jumper Hannah comes across a traumatized 12-year-old boy with nowhere else to turn. Another tricky, twisty Sheridan plot – this one involving everything from assassins to forest fires to federal agents and much more. Starring Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie, based on Michael Kortya’s novel. Also starring Nicholas Hoult, Finn Little, Aiden Gillen, Medina Senghore, Tyler Perry, Jake Weber, and Jon Bernthal. This looks pretty damn good; not surprised with this cast and crew, just hope there’s some clever reveals as it all plays out. Jolie looks solid. Take a look.
