Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is an upcoming film about a mother who confronts local police after the murder of her daughter Angela. According to Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) local police officers aren’t doing enough to catch her daughter’s killer. After months have passed without any arrests Mildred rents three local billboards and has posters put up saying things like “still no arrests?” and “how come, Chief Willoughby?”

Needless to say, Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) and some of the other police officers like Officer Jason Dixon (Sam Rockwell) are not pleased by Mildred’s taunting billboards. Mildred’s actions prove highly divisive with some showing support while many others turn against her.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri looks like it will be a fun black comedy using humour to deal with serious issues such as police brutality, while offering plenty of comedy such as Frances McDormand kicking two teenagers in the crotch. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is directed by the talented Martin McDonagh (previous credits include In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths), and stars a pretty impressive cast which includes plenty of talent to make this a very interesting watch.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is directed by Martin McDonagh and stars Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, Lucas Hedges, Zeljko Ivanek, and Kathryn Newton. It will be released in the U.S. on October 13th, 2017 with an as of yet unknown U.K. release date. For international release dates, click here.
