Tom Hardy, Shia Labeouf and Mia Wasikowska in new images from The Wettest County in the World

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

One of the early Oscar-buzz worthy films coming out later in the year is THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD, which is adapted from the novel of the same name by Matt Bondurant.  The film has all the ingredients that Academy voters love; lavish settings, historical drama, romance and characters overcoming odds to achieve something.  Wettest County is about a family of bootleggers that continued their business through the prohibition days.  According to producer Cassian Elwes, the film might premiere at Cannes, but I consider that a long shot considering they just wrapped shooting less than a month ago and Cannes is in May.

THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD stars Tom Hardy, Shia Labeouf, Mia Wasikowska, Gary Oldman, Dane DeHaan, Jessica Chastain and Guy Pearce.  John Hillcoat is directing the film that hits theaters this fall.  The first two pics are from the producer’s twitter account and it looks like he snapped them from the dailies.  And yes, the pictures are small, grainy and horrible, but they’re all we got at this point.  And the bottom one is a fan photo, but it’s also the first look at Mia Wasikowska.
