Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jessica Chastain cause trouble in new trailer for Lawless
One of the summer films that should be on your radar is the upcoming John Hillcoat movie LAWLESS. Formerly known as THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD, and then just THE WETTEST COUNTY, the official name is now in place with an exciting trailer to boot. With actors like Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Gary Oldman on board, this will be another film you will want to put on your must see list.
LAWLESS focuses on three brothers (Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke) who are bootleggers during the prohibition days. Their antics cause the authorities to go after them and try to cut off their supply and profits. Directed by John Hillcoat, LAWLESS stars: Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Jason Clarke, Dane DeHaan and Noah Taylor. It will be one of the featured films at the Cannes Film Festival next month and then will hit theaters on August 31, 2012.
Even though this film stars one of the hottest actors currently in Hollywood, Tom Hardy, it completely fell off my radar. Waking up to a new trailer with Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf was a nice surprise, let me tell you. Plus, it appears the year is shaping up very well for Tom Hardy since this will surely be his third successful film in less than nine months. Earlier this year Tom Hardy fought for love in THIS MEANS WAR and then he’ll go all bad guy on us in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (July 20th, 2012) and in LAWLESS. Throw in his two successful movies from last year, WARRIOR and TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY, and it almost looks like Tom Hardy can do no wrong on the big screen. I’m sure he’ll stumble somewhere along the way, but right now Tom Hardy is golden.
