Seven Psychopaths releases cat parody trailer: watch now

Seven Psychopaths is playing at the 2012 London Film Festival , and CBS Films have been kind enough to redo the trailer… with cats.

If there’s one sure way to get your video noticed on the internet, you need to throw a cat in it.

And it’s eerily well done, with the meta-gangster story getting a full feline makeover. Particularly impressive is the casting of a wigged hairless mog in place of Christopher Walken’s Hans.

Check out the new trailer below:

Seven Psychopaths is the latest caper from In Bruges writer/director Martin McDonagh. He’s assembled a hell of a cast for the story of a struggling screenwriter who falls foul of an unhinged gangster after a dognapping, with Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell and more on board.

Seven Psychopaths will play at the London Film Festival before opening in the UK on 7 December 2012.
