Vertigo’s The Kitchen Gets Its First Trailer

Based on the Vertigo comic series by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle, The Kitchen stars Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss.

The gritty, female-driven mob drama from New Line Cinema and BRON Creative, was written and directed by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for the original screenplay for Straight Outta Compton.

The story revolves around three 1978 Hell’s Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI. Left with little but a sharp ax to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands—proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition…literally.

The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), James Badge Dale (Only the Brave), Brian d’Arcy James (Spotlight), with Margo Martindale (TV’s The Americans), Oscar winner Common (Selma, Marshall), and Bill Camp (Vice). The cast also includes Jeremy Bobb (Marshall), E.J. Bonilla (TV’s The Long Road Home), Wayne Duvall (Prisoners), Annabella Sciorra (TV’s Daredevil), Myk Watford (HBO’s True Detective).

The Kitchen comes to theaters August 9, 2019.
