The Avenue has today debuted the first official trailer for Randall Emmett‘s (Midnight in the Switchgrass) taut revenge thriller Savage Salvation starring Jack Huston (Ben-Hur, Above Suspicion), Willa Fitzgerald (“Reacher,” “The Fall of the House of Usher”), Robert De Niro (Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, Cape Fear) and John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, Ripley’s Game, Con Air).
Directed by Emmett, from a screenplay by Adam Taylor Barker (Dig) and Chris Sivertson (All Cheerleaders Die, Kindred Spirits), the film sees newly engaged Shelby John (Huston) and Ruby Red (Fitzgerald) striving to turn over a new leaf and start fresh. They decide to have a family together and get clean, with the support of Peter, Ruby’s brother-in-law (Malkovich).
However, Shelby discovers his beloved Ruby dead on their porch before she could fulfill her final wish: to be baptized in the river and washed away from her past sins. Filled with fiery rage, Shelby embarks on a vengeful killing spree to right all the wrong done to Ruby by every link in the drug dealing chain.
Armed with nothing but adrenaline and a nail gun, Shelby picks off dealers and junkies one by one until he gets to the top. The town’s Sheriff Church (De Niro) and Detective Zeppelin must race against the clock to put an end to Shelby’s vigilante justice before his fight with the crime lord Coyote (Quavo) turn the entire town into a bloodbath.
Savage Salvation releases in theaters, on digital and On Demand on December 2, 2022. In the meantime, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer.
