The first Kill Me Three Times trailer just arrived and it’s lots of fun. Directed by Kriv Stenders (Red Dog), the crime caper stars Simon Pegg as a hit man and Alice Braga as his intended target. His plan to make a quick fifty grand goes out the window when he discovers that he’s not the only one gunning for the woman and finds himself mixed up in a web of mayhem, murder, and blackmail. The film looks like cheeky good fun. As always, Pegg is a pleasure to watch and it’s fun to see him play a bit of a slicker, darker character. The film also has an excellent supporting cast going for it, particularly Braga and Teresa Palmer who are both criminally underused talented young actresses.
The film also stars Luke Hemsworth, Sullivan Stapleton, and Bryan Brown. Magnet Releasing will issue the picture on iTunes/On Demand March 26, 2015 and in theaters April 10, 2015. Check out the Kill Me Three Times trailer after the jump.
