The first trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri introduces Frances McDormand in what looks to be a fierce performance as a mother enduring tragedy who is prone to cursing, using a dentistā€™s tools against him, and throwing Molotov cocktails. McDormand plays Mildred Hayes, a woman so furious at the policeā€˜s inaction following the murder of her daughter, she puts up three billboards publicly calling them out.

As one might expect from a film written and directed by Martin McDonagh of In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths fame, thereā€™s a grim sense of humor to the proceedings, which also involve Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson. Itā€™s also likely that Mildredā€™s verbal fight will turn violent, as McDonagh often unleashes bloodshed. Three Billboards doesnā€™t have a release date yet.
