Lawless had debuted an excellent first trailer, featuring Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy as a pair of criminal brothers who become feared outlaws in Prohibition-era America.
The film follows the exploits of the Bondurant brothers, a pair of bootleggers who find themselves threatened by the crooked Southern authorities who want a share of their profits.
The first trailer features plenty of gun-slinging action, alongside some instantly memorable supporting turns from the likes of Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman and a demonic-looking Guy Pearce.
Take a look at the new trailer below…
It looks as though LaBeouf has finally found a project that will allow him to do more than look scared and run away, while Hardy looks as unshakeably cool as ever. Meanwhile, if there’s a more badass sight than Gary Oldman toting a Tommy gun, we’ve yet to see it.
Directed by The Road ’s John Hillcoat, the film is an adaptation of the novel The Wettest Country In The World by Matt Bondurant, with none other than Nick Cave on script-writing duties. Lawless opens in the US on 31 August 2012, with a UK release date to be confirmed.
