Matt Damon heads to a small town in new images from Promised Land
A couple of new photos have been released for the upcoming Matt Damon and John Krasinski film PROMISED LAND and though this film will probably fly under a lot of people’s radar’s, I think it looks pretty darn good. The film follows a corporate salesman named Steve Butler (Matt Damon) who goes to a struggling rural town in America with his fellow salesperson Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand). These two are talking to all the local farmers and trying to get drilling rights for their big company, however their efforts are thwarted when a local farmer (John Krasinski) takes a stand and tries to convince his fellow citizens that what Butler and Thomason are selling will hurt the community in the long run.
Directed by Gus Van Sant, PROMISE LAND stars: Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Frances McDormand, Rosemarie DeWitt, Lucas Black, Scoot McNairy and Hal Holbrook. PROMISED LAND will have a limited release on December 28th (just in time for awards season) and will open in a wide release on January 11th, 2013. Check out the new photos below. (EW)
