New Trailer for Michael Winterbottom's 'The Killer Inside Me'
Whoa. IFC Films has debuted this official trailer (via The Playlist) for Michael Winterbottom's The Killer Inside Me, which stars Casey Affleck as deputy sheriff Lou Ford as well as Jessica Alba, Ned Beatty, Elias Koteas, Simon Baker, Kate Hudson, and Bill Pullman. We previously featured an extended promo trailer for The Killer Inside Me back in November before all the buzz really started up at Sundance. This is the film where Affleck plays a sociopathic murderer who covers up his tracks the best he can as a sheriff. Some folks loved it, others hated it, so check out the new trailer at least and let us know if you're interested in it, too.
Watch the official trailer for Michael Winterbottom's The Killer Inside Me:
Sheriff Lou Ford (Casey Affleck) has a lot of problems. Woman problems. Law enforcement problems. An ever-growing pile of murder victims in his West Texas jurisdiction. And that he's a sadist, a psychopath, a killer. Suspicion soon begins to fall on Lou, and it's only a matter of time before he runs out of more alibis.
The Killer Inside Me is directed by British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom, of Butterfly Kiss, Wonderland, The Claim, 24 Hour Party People, Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, The Road to Guantanamo, and A Mighty Heart. The script was written by filmmaker John Curran and is an adaptation of Jim Thompson's novel. IFC Films will be bringing The Killer Inside Me to VOD and limited theaters starting on June 18th.
