Kurt Russell Leads a Thieving Gang in New 'Art of the Steal' Trailer
After premiering at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival (and hitting Canadian theaters this past fall), the crime caper The Art of the Steal is coming to big screens in the United States. Kurt Russell leads the film as a daredevil who is forced to head back into the arena of art theft for one last job with his shady brother Nicky (Matt Dillon). The cast is rounded out by Terrence Stamp, Jay Baruchel, Jason Jones and Katheryn Winnick, and while this doesn't look terrible, it does have the feel of a film that won't be all that memorable. At least it's not getting a January release date, but March is only slightly better.
Here's the first US trailer for Jonathan Sobol's The Art of the Steal from Radius-TWC:
Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell), a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief, agrees to get back into the con game and pull off one final lucrative art theft with his untrustworthy brother, Nicky (Matt Dillon). Reassembling the old team, Crunch comes up with a plan to steal a priceless historical book, but the successful heist leads to another far riskier plan devised by Nicky. They fail to realize each other's separate agendas when their plan goes awry. Terence Stamp, Jay Baruchel, Katheryn Winnick, and Jason Jones also star in The Art of the Steal, written and directed by Jonathan Sobol which premiered at TIFF 2013 and Radius-TWC releases the film on VOD February 7th, 2014 and opens in theaters March 14th, 2014.
