The Kitchen stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?” “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.
The Kitchen is set for release on August 9th in the US and September 20th in the UK. Features a cast that also includes Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), James Badge Dale (Only the Brave), Brian d’Arcy James (Spotlight), Margo Martindale (Sneaky Pete), Common (Hunter Killer), Bill Camp (Red Sparrow); Jeremy Bobb (Marshall), E.J. Bonilla (The Long Road Home), Wayne Duvall (Prisoners), Annabella Sciorra (Daredevil), and Myk Watford (Darkness Rising).
