Already eagerly anticipated, the first trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Logan
After saying he was retiring from film directing, Soderbergh is back behind the camera for his first film since 2013’s Side Effects and Behind the Candelabra and it looks like he has chosen wisely as even from the first couple of minutes of footage seen in the trailer below looks like classic Soderbergh.
Channing Tatum (Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Magic Mike XXL) and Adam Driver (Paterson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) stars as Jimmy and Clyde Logan, brothers and petty thieves who decide to attempt to pull of a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina. A little out of their depth in the planning stage, they decide to try and acquire the help of Joe Bang (Daniel Craig), an incarcerated thief who they feel has the necessary attributes to help them pull it off.
On the movie, Soderbergh said:
“It’s an anti-glam version of an ‘Ocean’’s movie… Nobody dresses nice. Nobody has nice stuff. They have no money. They have no technology. It’s all rubber band technology, and that’s what I thought was fun about it. It seemed familiar to me, but different enough.” (via The Playlist)
Here’s the synopsis:
Trying to reverse a family curse, brothers Jimmy and Clyde Logan set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Seth Macfarlane (Ted, Family Guy), Riley Keough (American Honey, The Discovery), Katie Holmes (Woman in Gold, Touched by Fire), Katherine Waterston (Alien: Covenant, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and Oscar Winner Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby, The Homesman) co-star
Logan Lucky opens on August 25th.
