Looking for the ultimate pay-off, the aforementioned Terry (Skarsgård) and Bob (Peña) attempt to extort a strip-club manager (Caleb Landry Jones, Byzantium) and his eccentric, junkie boss (Theo James, Underworld: Awakening). But the “lawmen” get more than they bargained for when their hair-brained scheme uncovers a bigger, darker secret.

Written and directed by John Michael McDonagh (The Guard, Calvary), the R-rated film also features Tessa Thompson (Selma) and Paul Reiser (Whiplash).

This one made only a so-so impression on critics during its limited U.S. theatrical rollout in February, garnering a 56% Fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 71 published reviews.

All formats of the film feature the featurette “Everyone Sounds Off: The Quirky Cast of War on Everyone” featurette.
