First Trailer for John Hillcoat’s Lawless, Premiering at Cannes!

Posted by Max Lalanne on April 24, 2012

John Hillcoat’s upcoming Lawless, formerly known as The Wettest County and based on Matt Bondurant’s memoir The Wettest County in the World, has released the first highly-anticipated trailer. And it looks pretty damn cool.

In a gritty and action-packed gangster tale, Shia Laboeuf and Tom Hardy star as two brothers in Depression-era Virginia who become outlaws after authorities threaten their bootlegging business.

The film, which is premiering in competition at the Cannes Film Festival this May, also stars the always-lovely Jessica Chastain, as well as Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska, and Guy Pearce. Me likey.
