The final trailer has been released for The Kitchen, an upcoming crime-drama based on the DC Comics graphic novel of the same name by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle.
Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss play three housewives in 1978 Hell’s Kitchen. When their mobster husbands are locked up, they’re left without much – just a determination to take matters into their own hands.
Having generally comedic stars such as McCarthy and Haddish getting deadly serious could work well, and of course there’s Moss’ well-established prowess on the dramatic side of things. There’s also a nice supporting cast, including Domhnall Gleeson, James Badge Dale and Common. As far as this and the previous trailer go, the film looks like a solid crime flick. We’re in.
The Kitchen, which marks the directorial debut for Oscar-nominated screenwriter Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton, World Trade Center), will open in the US on August 9 and arrives in Australia on August 29.
Official synopsis for The Kitchen:
“The Kitchen” stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss as three 1978 Hell’s Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI. Left with little but a sharp axe to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands—proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition…literally.
THE KITCHEN is directed by Andrea Berloff and also stars Domhnall Gleeson, James Badge Dale, Brian d’Arcy James, with Margo Martindale, Oscar winner Common, and Bill Camp; as well as Jeremy Bobb, E.J. Bonilla, Wayne Duvall, Annabella Sciorra and Myk Watford.
