Exclusive: In Bruges Trailer + Pics

Where’s Bruge? What is Bruges? Think a smaller Amsterdam without the illegal stuff replaced by fries, beer and postcard setting. Just a couple of days ago, the Sundance Film Fest announced the opening film for their 2008 edition – the to-be-released on February 8th hit man comedy by Focus Features is the feature film debut from Martin McDonagh
(the winner for Oscar for best short film Six Shooter). While many of you are enjoying your turkey or faux-turkey, I’m thinking that In Bruges might be anything but that. We’ve got the exclusive first look at the official trailer, plus a pair of pics for you below.

Where's Bruges? What is Bruges? Think a smaller Amsterdam without the illegal stuff replaced by fries, beer and postcard setting. Just a couple of days ago, the Sundance Film Fest announced the opening film for their 2008 edition – the to-be-released on February 8th hit man/comedy by Focus Features is the feature film debut from Martin McDonagh (the winner for Oscar for best short film Six Shooter).

We've got the exclusive first look at the official trailer, plus a pair of pics for you below.

Written by McDonagh, this tells the story of hit men Ray and Ken, (Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, respectively) who, after a badly botched job in London, are ordered by their boss, Harry (Fiennes), to cool their heels in the bucolic city of Bruges, Belgium. Very much out of their comfort zones, the men find themselves drawn into increasingly dangerous entanglements with locals, tourists, and a film shoot. When their stay in Bruges takes a turn for the worst, Ray and Ken realize Harry may have plans for them other than a simple vacation.
