Watch: New US Trailer for Sam Worthington's Surfing Movie 'Drift'
"Go for it man, get into it. That's the whole point, right?" Lionsgate & Wrekin Hill has debuted another new trailer for the Australian film Drift, starring Myles Pollard, Xavier Samuel and Sam Worthington as surfing legends from the 1970s. We ran a much longer original trailer back in December, but this one is a tighter cut focusing on the drug drama that could "end it all." It looks a bit better than Chasing Mavericks, and I am curious to check it out sometime, but not before I watch Soul Surfer or Lords of Dogtown or the doc Riding Giants first. The trailer ends on a fairly odd note, but if you dig surfing or Australia give it a look.
Here's the brand new trailer for Morgan O'Neill & Ben Nott's Drift, in high def from Apple:
In the 70s, two brothers Andy & Jimmy (Myles Pollard & Xavier Samuel) battle killer waves, conservative society and ruthless bikers to kick-start the modern surf industry with bohemian surf photographer and filmmaker JB (Sam Worthington) and gorgeous Hawaiian surfer companion, Lani (Lesley-Ann Brandt).
Drift is co-directed by newcomers Morgan O'Neill & Ben Nott, from a screenplay by Morgan O'Neill based on a story by O'Neill & Tim Duffy. The film will be getting a release in theaters the US from Lionsgate & Wrekin Hill starting August 2nd, plus available VOD starting July 2nd this summer. Is anyone interested?
