Watch: Second Trailer for 'Lawless' with Tom Hardy & Shia LaBeouf
"We don't lay down for nobody." Weinstein Co. has debuted the second theatrical trailer for John Hillcoat's Lawless, originally titled The Wettest County, the prohibition crime drama that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival (my review). The film stars Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf & Jason Clarke as the Bondurant Brothers, three bootlegging brothers in Virginia, who have to fend off the cops and a growing mob empire. Hardy is a total badass in this, there's some great gun and fist fights, it is worth seeing. The cast includes Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska plus Dane DeHaan. Take a swig!
