Although it was recently announced it will screen In Competition
at this year’s Cannes Film Festival
, we haven’t seen any footage from John Hillcoat
, until today as this fantastic trailer arrives online.
So, we finally see Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf
and Jason Clarke
in action, as brothers who have started a dangerous bootlegging business as well as an impressive secondary cast that includes Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain
and Mia Wasikowska
Dangerous guys, machine guns, Hardy getting into fights, Oldman and Pearce as villains in just one trailer? What more could you possibly want?
After The Road
and The Proposition
, this is the third Hillcoat’s feature-length film and the first time the director has tackled a true historical story about the American south based on Matt Bondurant’s novel The Wettest County in the World
The Prohibition-era set thriller was once being referred to as The Wettest County
, and for some reason it’s now called Lawless
It is really great to see all these actors in the one movie.
First off, as we mentioned, we’ve got LaBeouf, Clarke and Hardy playing the Bondurant Boys, Gary Oldman playing the big-time crook they’re working for, then Guy Pearce as the corrupt authority figure brought in to make sure they’re either getting shut down or giving the government their required cut of the profits.
Lawless will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month and opens in the US on August 31st, 2012.
