Trailer for LAWLESS arrives and is just as stunning as you would have expected

With its debut at this year’s Cannes Film Festival just a few weeks away, it’s about time we finally see something from John Hillcoat’s upcoming film, LAWLESS. Today we finally have the first trailer for the film, and it’s a winner.

Based on Matt Bondurant's novel The Wettest County in the World, LAWLESS stars Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke as the Bondurant brothers, who are tapped by a gangster into running a bootlegging ring only to have various people trying to get their hands on the money that is brought in. Backed by The Weinstein Company, the film looks to be one of the most interesting entries into this year’s festival, and based on this trailer, it may be one of its best. Check it out after the jump.

As a huge fan of both Hillcoat and the cast he’s assembled here, I can’t wait to check this sucker out. A film like this doesn’t come around very often, and with Gary Oldman and Jessica Chastain rounding out the cast, this is shaping up to be something truly special.

LAWLESS opens on August 31.

    halfway into the trailer I can feel this will be very good, stopped watching before it ruins the entire story arch as they tend to do. looking forward to it greatly in the future:)

    Oooh, it does look good. I have a soft spot for that era… tempting to read the book first. I’d not heard of it before..
