Vertigo’s The Kitchen is hitting theaters this coming weekend, and there’s a new featurette to explain a bit more of the story if you aren’t familiar with it.
Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss are going to take down 1970s Hell’s Kitchen, and it’s looking pretty darn good to us. There’s just something about 1970s New York City as a setting that will always get people interested. It sure isn’t the NYC of today.
New York City, 1978. The 20 blocks of pawnshops, porn palaces and dive bars between 8th Avenue and the Hudson River owned by the Irish mafia and known as Hell’s Kitchen was never the easiest place to live. Or the safest. But for mob wives Kathy, Ruby and Claire—played by Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss—things are about to take a radical, dramatic turn. When their husbands are sent to prison by the FBI, the women take business into their own hands, running the rackets and taking out the competition…literally.
Now they own the neighborhood.
Tickets are on sale now.
The Kitchen opens on Aug. 9.
