John Hillcoat’s Lawless will be making its way to theatres in a little over a month’s time, and all we’ve seen so far has been beyond promising, shaping up to be one of the best crime-dramas of the year.
Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf lead an all-star cast, alongside Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Dane DeHaan, and Jason Clarke.
Following on from the new images we saw earlier this year, the film’s official Facebook has released a great new UK poster ahead of its release this September, with Hardy front and centre, beside LaBeouf and Wasikowska.
“LAWLESS is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel “The Wettest County in the World”, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave.”
Hillcoat is directing from a script by Nick Cave, who adapted the original novel by Matt Bondurant, The Wettest County in the World, which was previously to be the film’s title.
Lawless will be released by The Weinstein Company in the US on 29th August, before hitting UK shores on 7th September. It debuted at Cannes to fantastic reviews – you can read our own here – and we can’t wait for it to arrive on the big screen. As usual with this great new poster, you can click to enlarge.
