John Cena’s 2019 “smoke jumper has to take care of child(ren)” comedy Playing with Fire finally has its dramatic companion piece. Have a look with the trailer for Those Who Wish Me Dead.
Angelina Jolie stars as a smoke jumper who comes across a blood-covered 12-year-old alone in the forest. He apparently saw his dad get murdered by these guys with giant guns—and now those dudes are setting forest fires and coming after him! Writer-director Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water) has said he aims for absurdly simple plots, and it seems he has succeeded here. This is classic man vs. man vs. nature vs. giant guns.
We’ll see wins May 14, in theaters and on HBO Max.
