That's the premise we see in the trailer for the star-studded heist drama "Triple 9." This cast is incredible: Kate Winslet, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Mackie, Casey Affleck, Aaron Paul, Gal Gadot, Michael K. Williams, Norman Reedus, and Clifton Collins Jr.
Winslet plays a Russian mob boss (so awesome) who puts the screws to a gang of thiefs to pull off a nearly impossible heist. The only way they can get it done is to manufacture a "999," police code for "officer down." But things go very awry when the rookie they target foils the plan, putting everyone in a high-stakes game of life or death.
The trailer looks down and dirty, and it seems we can expect a lot of intense action and scenery-chewing (particularly on the part of Winslet).
"Triple 9" opens in theaters February 19.
