Bold, breathless and wickedly fun, FREE FIRE is an electrifying comedy-thriller about an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong.

Director Ben Wheatley (SIGHSEERS, HIGH RISE) propels the audience head-on into quite possibly the most epic shootout ever seen on film as he crafts a spectacular parody - and biting critique - of the insanity of gun violence. Everyone's got a gun, and absolutely no one is in control. Set in a colourful yet gritty 1970s Boston, FREE FIRE opens with Justine, a mysterious American businesswoman, and her wise-cracking associate Ord arranging a black-market weapons deal in a deserted warehouse between IRA arms buyer Chris and shifty South African gun runner Vernon. What starts as a polite if uneasy exchange soon goes south when tensions escalate and shots are fired, quickly leading to a full-on Battle Royale where it's every man (and woman) for themselves.
