After it’s successful outing at this year’s Sundance film festival, Bart Layton’s feature, American Animals has received its first US trailer.

The crime thriller follows four over-confident and entitled friends as they commit an audacious art heist. If the trailer is anything to go by it seems to be lacking any strong female roles.

The film hits US cinemas June 1st & UK 7th September.

American Animals Official Synopsis

The extraordinary and thrilling true story of four friends (Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, Blake Jenner, and Jared Abrahamson) living an ordinary existence who brazenly attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in US history. But not everything is as it seems, and as the daring theft unfolds through each of their perspectives, each of them starts to question whether their attempts to inject excitement and purpose into their lives is simply a misguided attempt at achieving the American Dream.
