'The Kitchen' movie trailer offers a different kind of comic book adaptation

New Line Cinema and BRON Creative have brought online the first trailer for their gritty mob drama The Kitchen, starring Tiffany Haddish, Melissa McCarthy and Elizabeth Moss. Check it out in the player below and take a look at the film’s poster at the bottom of this page.

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton), The Kitchen follows three 1978 Hell’s Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI. Left with little but a sharp ax 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 also stars Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), James Badge Dale (Only the Brave), Brian d’Arcy James (Spotlight), with Margo Martindale (The Americans), Common (Selma), Bill Camp (Vice), Jeremy Bobb (Marshall), E.J. Bonilla (The Long Road Home), Wayne Duvall (Prisoners), Annabella Sciorra (Daredevil), Myk Watford (True Detective).

Berloff’s screenplay was based on the comic book series created for DC Vertigo by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle.

Look for The Kitchen to hit the big screen beginning August 9.
