This Just In

Angelina Jolie Fights Fire (and Assassins) In the Trailer For Those Who Wish Me Dead

The new film from Sicario director Taylor Sheridan centres on a fire warden who must help a young boy escape ruthless killers

Angelina Jolie hasn't appeared in a proper adult drama for a good few years now, so it's a strange but nice surprise to glimpse her in the new trailer for the solemnly titled Those Who Wish Me Dead as a haunted woman whose job is to sit in one of those towers and look out with a pair of binoculars for signs of a forest fire. If that idea alone doesn't sound like the stuff of gripping cinema (what's wrong with you?), throw in a young boy on the run from a couple of assassins (played by the evil dream team of Nicholas Hoult and Aidan Gillen), who set a national park ablaze in a bid to flush him out.

The film, the latest from writer-director Taylor Sheridan of Sicario, Hell or High Water and Wind River fame, looks set to continue his brand of smart and subversive neo-westerns that play around with form and genre, albeit with a lot more fire. We're in.

Those Who Wish Me Dead will be released on HBO Max and US theatres on 14 May. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
