Armie Hammer chews the… scenery… in his new movie Crisis about the opioid epidemic.
The movie also stars Gary Oldman, Evangeline Lily, Greg Kinear, Kid Cudi, Michelle Rodriguez, Lily Rose-Depp,and Duke (grandson of Jack) Nicholson.
(The large cast of A-listers probably explains why it wasn’t shelved amidst Armie’s ongoing cannibalism scandal, like his other movies. Well, that and the timely subject matter).
Three stories about the world of opioids collide: a drug trafficker arranges a multi-cartel Fentanyl smuggling operation between Canada and the U.S., an architect recovering from an OxyContin addiction tracks down the truth behind her son’s involvement with narcotics, and a university professor battles unexpected revelations about his research employer, a drug company with deep government influence bringing a new “non-addictive” painkiller to market.
