LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

WAR ON EVERYONE Trailer Starring Alexander Skarsgård & Michael Peña

Award-winning writer-director of THE GUARD & CALVARY , John Michael McDonagh crosses the globe for his much-anticipated third film, a jet-black action comedy starring Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and Theo James .
