The first official trailer for the DC Vertigo adaptation The Kitchen has finally arrived, featuring Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss as a trio of Hell’s Kitchen housewives-turned-mobsters.
The Kitchen is an adaptation of Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle's comic of the same name, which was released back in 2014.
The original eight-issue miniseries places the wives of Irish mobsters into the heat of the battle when the three women -- Raven, Kathy and Angie -- take control of the business after their husbands are sent to prison. However, when their husbands are released, the women decide they are not willing to give up their newfound power and control.
The official synopsis and a brand-new poster can be found below:
The Kitchen stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids), Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) as 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.
A New Line Cinema production, The Kitchen is written and directed by Andrea Berloff and stars Melisa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss, Domhnall Gleeson, James Badge Dale, Brian d’Arcy James, Margo Martindale, Common and Bill Camp. The movie hits theaters on Aug. 9.
