Seven Psychopaths Will Steal Its Way On To Blu-ray In January
Despite a splendid cast, a wild premise, and a relatively low budget, Seven Psychopaths didn’t make a large impression at the box office during its theatrical run, pulling in a little under $15 million. If you missed it in theaters, you’ll be able to catch the twisted comedy when it hits Blu-ray and DVD on January 29.

Seven Psychopaths Director Martin McDonagh Talks Rabbits And Walken, Reflects On In Bruges
After winning an Academy Award for his short film Six Shooter, playwright Martin McDonagh made his move to the world of features with the movie In Bruges. While the title failed to get any real traction domestically at the time of its theatrical release, it garnered a great deal of critical praise, earned a Best Original Screenplay Academy Award nomination, won Colin Farrell a Golden Globe and has since taken on a cult following.

Mickey Rourke Gets Killed In Seven Psychopaths, And Here's How
Those who have been following the film's development through production may remember a time last year when the project hit a speed bump in the casting department. It had initially been reported that Mickey Rourke had signed on to play the movie's antagonist, a dog-loving, violent gangster named Charlie Costello, but that story fell apart in November when Rourke had a few choice words for McDonagh. "The director was a jerkoff," Rourke said when asked about the project.

Red Band Seven Psychopaths Trailer Has Farrell, Rockwell And Walken Stealing A Dog
Martin McDonagh's In Bruges is not what you would call a "child-friendly movie" - in fact, the entire story begins because one of the main characters shoots a young boy in the face. It has plenty of drugs, sex, cursing, violence, nudity and bad people doing bad things to other bad people, and McDonagh's next film, Seven Psychopaths, doesn't look like its going to be a movie for the kiddies either.

All Seven Character Posters For Seven Psychopaths
Beyond being a pretty excellent title that evokes a sense of grand storytelling and frenzy, the name promised at least seven new additions to McDonagh's catalogue of often violent but always humorous characters. And with CBS Film's release of individual character posters, you don't need to wait for the film to hit theaters to get to know these psychos.

Colin Farrell And Woody Harrelson Go To War In Seven Psychopaths Trailer
In Bruges star Colin Farrell reteams with McDonagh to play Billy's best friend Marty, a screenwriter who gets caught in the cross hairs of his pal's dangerous scheme. Tom Waits, Quantum of Solace's Olga Kurylenko, Abbie Cornish and Precious's Gabourey Sidibe also co-star, and each get some screentime below in Seven Psychopaths' first trailer, which helpfully counts down its titular lunatics.

Seven Psychopaths Moves Up A Month As Gambit Shifts To 2013
We've already seen some big movies get pushed far back into the release schedule so far in 2012. At the start of the year it was reported that Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, a new action film starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, was moved from March 2, 2012 to January 11, 2013. We then saw another major shift at the start of the summer when it was announced that G.I. Joe: Retaliation...

First Look At Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell And More In Seven Psychopaths
Farrell is the central character of the film, a screenwriter working on a script called Seven Psychopaths-- it's no coincidence that he, like the writer-director, is also named Martin-- and trying to find the personalities to flesh out the story. That becomes less of a problem when he gets wrapped up in Rockwell's scheme to kidnap the dogs belonging to rich people

Woody Harrelson Taking Mickey Rourke's Place In Seven Psychopaths
Even though it was his directorial debut, Martin McDonagh managed to assemble one hell of a cast for when he made In Bruges. Bringing together Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes, the movie was not only brilliantly written, but featured some outstanding performances. But McDonagh is planning to go even bigger for his sophomore effort, Seven Psychopaths.

Mickey Rourke Calls Martin McDonagh A Jerk-Off, Won't Be In Seven Psychopaths
Last month we reported that Rourke had turned down a role in The Expendables 2 in order to take part in Psychopaths, which also includes Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell in the cast. It's hard to know exactly what happened to cause that bad blood between Rourke and McDonagh

Mickey Rourke Won't Be Back For Expendables 2
For one Expendables cast member, that title has proved all too accurate when it comes to the sequel. Mickey Rourke, who played an old friend and former teammate of Sylvester Stallone's Barney Ross in the 2010 action hit, will not be returning for the 2012 sequel.

In Bruges Director's Follow-Up, Seven Psychopaths, May Land At CBS Films
This story makes me 40 different varieties of happy. In Bruges proved that McDonagh knows how to make a pitch-perfect dark comedy and this film seems perfectly in line with that. It's a shame that it seems as though Brendan Gleeson won't be returning, but it's really hard to complain about the cast that has been assembled here.

Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken And Mickey Rourke Are Seven Psychopaths For Martin McDonagh
The story sounds even more wackadoo than a few hitmen stuck in Belgium. Farrell plays a screenwriter working on a script with the same name as the film's title; for some reason he agrees to help his friends (Rockwell and Walken) kidnap a dog, and things get even more complicated when a gangster
