UNHINGED: Followed by the White Rabbit?

I was at the cinema the other night with my sons and before the film we went to see came on the screen there was a trailer for
Russell Crowe's new movie 'UNHINGED'.
There must be an Australian version that's a little bit different to the international version, because the trailer I saw makes it way more clearer to the viewer why these people can't get along in the first place.
In the Australian version Russ is depicted as a Rabbitohs fan:-) 
And he is confronted by a 2019/2020 depressed Brisbane Broncos fan:-)
Straight away Aussie viewers know the s#it will hit the fan here;-)
Any sane road users, like us Sharkie fans for example, will know straight away when you see two fans, one a Rabbitohs' supporter and the other a lunatic (probably no need to use the word lunatic in front of the words Bronco supporter, as they are really one and the same thing;-) Brisbane Broncos' supporter confronting each other on the road, to pull over and keep the hell away from both:-)
There's probably a Queensland (Maroons)/ New South Wales (Blues) rivalry playing out here as well, in which case you just know that Russell's character is going to kill the Queenslander easily on current form:-)
Russell becoming UNHINGED at a Rabbitohs game?-)
Congratulations Russ and the Rabbitohs ... The Nightmare is Over?
Russell Crowe: Unhinged role reflects on 'rage in Western society'
And why has this lady got red and green painted fingernails Russ?-)
That screenshot above has not been touched up by me, either.
I think that would be Russell's idea of a shout out to his
South Sydney Rabbitohs roots, like an Easter Egg for fans to spot how obsessed he is with his team. 
Russell Crowe the Rabbitoh?
And in light of current events this movie seems to have tapped a nerve in the 'collective unconscious' in a synchromystic sense I think.
COVID 19?!
Why can't we just all get along?
