Gerard Butler and Frank Grillo cause all sorts of mayhem in Open Road Films’ new trailer for “Copshop”.
A new trailer for the action thriller premiered on Thursday ahead of the movie’s theatrical release next month. “Copshop” is set in a small-town police station that becomes the battleground between a hitman, a rookie cop and a con artist.

“Screaming through the Nevada desert in a bullet-ridden Crown Vic, wily con artist Teddy Murretto (Grillo) hatches a desperate plan to hide out from lethal hitman Bob Viddick (Butler): He sucker-punches rookie officer Valerie Young (Alexis Louder) to get himself arrested and locked up in a small-town police station,” a synopsis explains. “But jail can’t protect Murretto for long.”
“Viddick schemes his own way into detention, biding his time in a nearby cell until he can complete his mission,” the explainer concludes. “When the arrival of a competing assassin (Toby Huss) ignites all-out mayhem, mounting threats force Viddick to get creative if he wants to finish the job and escape the explosive situation.”
