'Brawl in Cell Block 99'

If it seemed like Vince Vaughn was merely dipping a toe into a dark, tormented career phase with his recent True Detective stint, this pulpy prison thriller suggests he's now ready to fully embrace his go-for-baroque batshit side. Having been thrown in the clink after hooking up with mobsters to make ends meet, his bald, bulked-up ex-boxer finds himself becoming a pawn in various cell-block turf wars. Anyone who's seen director S. Craig Zahler's bloody-as-hell Western Tomahawk knows this guy has B-movie chops – and there's every indication that neither the filmmaker nor his star are keeping the kid gloves on here.
