Trailer: Lawless (Red Band)


As the release date for John Hillcoat’s Lawless approaches, a red band trailer has popped up for the Prohibition-era crime drama. It’s much moodier than the previous trailer for Lawless, and it has me even more interested in seeing the film. You get more of that Hillcoat brutality, a little bit of nudity, more gunfire and brimstone, and a greater sense of the story’s scope.

On the note of Lawless, I’ve heard a few cuts from the Lawless sountrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, and it’s pretty damn phenomenal. (You get a taste of “Fire and Brimstone” in the red band trailer.) My favorite songs I’ve heard so far are “Burnin’ Hell,” “Cosmonaut” (sung by Emmylou Harris), and “Midnight Run” by Willie Nelson.

The Lawless soundtrack comes out August 28th, Lawless hits theaters on August 29th.
