Seven Psychopaths Trailer Debuts Starring Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and a Shih Tzu

When a movie is named something like Seven Psychopaths, there's probably an expectation that the movie will be centered around seven deadly, crazed individuals in a thriller not unlike Seven. However, in the upcoming comedy from writer-director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges), the action is instead centered on a dog-napping of a tiny Shih Tzu. Perhaps the title has more to do with the movie's characters than its plot, as revealed in its first trailer.
Seven Psychopaths stars Colin Farrell as Marty, a struggling writer trying to finish his screenplay Seven Psychopaths (so that's where the title comes from!), but instead gets caught up in the dog thieving exploits of his best friend (Sam Rockwell) and his partner in crime (Christopher Walken), who stole a beloved Shih Tzu from a gangster (Woody Harrelson).
If you've done you're math right, you'll note that there are more "psychopaths," including Tom Waits, who shows up inexplicably holding a bunny rabbit; Olga Kurylenko, who plays Rockwell's girlfriend and wants the dog returned; Abbie Cornish as Farrell's passive-aggressive girlfriend, who, well, doesn't exactly admit what she's mad about; and Gabourey Sidibe, who lost the dog and gets yelled at by Harrelson. We're pretty sure that's more than seven, but you get the idea.
