Trailer: 'Lawless'

John Hillcoat is one of those names that makes any movie it is attached to instantly jump to the top of my most anticipated list. If you are unfamiliar, Hillcoat directed the incredible, bleak Australia-based western, The Proposition. If you missed that one, see it immediately. He knocked it out of the park again with post-apocalyptic drama, The Road. His latest, Lawless, is an adaptation of Matt Bondurant’s book “The Wettest County in the World" about three moonshine-bootlegging brothers during the Depression.

Lawless marks the second collaboration between Hillcoat and screenwriter/musician Nick Cave, who also penned The Proposition. Add to that a FANTASTIC cast that includes Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, and Shia LaBeouf. The latter is bound to be a turn-off for some people, but let's give the guy a chance, he could still turn it around. Take a look at the trailer:

I don't know about you, but I popped a nerd boner when Gary Oldman started going crazy with a Tommy gun!
