Trailer: Lawless

4:00 PM on 04.26.2012 // Alex Katz

You may remember Lawless under its original title, The Wettest County in the World. It's John Hillcoat of The Proposition and The Road paying homage to the Wild West-ish world of country liquor bootlegging. Booze runners Tom Hardy and actual cannibal Shia LaBoeuf have to avoid the law, in the form of a smarmy, dangeous Guy Pearce and a local moonshine baron played by Gary Oldman. The book this film is based on is notorious for incredibly graphic depictions of violence, and this trailer definitely shows a very brutal sensibility. I mean, it's a John Hillcoat movie. Of course it's going to be brutal.
