Mildred Hayes has had it. It’s been weeks since her daughter was brutally raped and murdered, and the local police force in Ebbing, Missouri don’t have a single perp to show for all their efforts. Feeling disrespected and unheard, Mildred does the only thing an ordinary citizen at the end of their rope can do: she clarifies which cursewords you can put on a billboard and puts a message right where area sheriff Willoughby will see it. Them’s fightin’ words on her billboards, reading “RAPED WHILE DYING. STILL NO ARRESTS. HOW COME, CHIEF WILLOUGHBY?” And in the newly released red-band trailer begins a long, farcical, spiteful conflict between one-woman army MIldred and the local cops.

‘Don Verdean’ Trailer: Danny McBride Sends Sam Rockwell to Search for Religious Artifacts

by Britt Hayes October 27, 2015 @ 7:25 PM
If that headline didn’t clue you in, then you should know that this is a trailer for Don Verdean, a new absurd religious satire from the guys who brought you Napoleon Dynamite (and some other movies that weren’t as well-liked) — not a trailer for a new religious movie. Although I’d pay handsomely to watch Danny McBride and Sam Rockwell play it straight in a faith-based drama.

Or as mainstream as indies can get, anyway. As you can see in the trailer for his latest, his appeal is only growing.
