I’ve always held Guy Pearce in extremely high regard as an actor, but lately he’s just found himself wallowing in some pretty mediocre films. And while he always acquits himself admirably, the effluence around him be damned, he needs to start keeping some better company.
John Hillcoat’s Lawless seems to be just that. Pearce looks like he’ll just be chewing up the scenery in this one. But judging by this new trailer, he won’t be alone, as the stellar cast, including Tom Hardy, Shia Lebeouf, Jessica Chastain and Gary Oldman, all seem to have their teeth out.
Along with the trailer, the film has also seen the release of a series of character posters each highlighting one of the principal cast. I just love the fact that out of all them, Shia Lebeouf is undoubtedly the most gangster.
Lawless is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave.
