Son of a Gun Trailer

"Where is the gold?!" eOne out of Australia has debuted the first trailer for Son of a Gun (fun title, no?) a crime thriller starring Ewan McGregor and Brenton Thwaites (from The Giver) as partners in crime. The story involves McGregor taking Thwaites under his wing while he's in prison at age 19, recruiting him for a job upon release which eventually leads to him earning a spot on the heist crew. Then it goes all out Italian Job (remake, not the original). There's lots of heisting, prison violence, beards, accents, guns, and a woman, of course - Alicia Vikander, a Swedish actress you may recognize from Anna Karenina or A Royal Affair. This looks solid, and entertaining, I'm curious to check it out when it makes its way up here. Enjoy.

Here's the first official trailer for Julius Avery's Son of a Gun, direct from eOne ANZ on Facebook:

Locked up for a minor crime, 19 year old JR (Thwaites) quickly learns the harsh realities of prison life. Protection, if you can get it, is paramount. JR soon finds himself under the watchful eye of Australia's most notorious criminal, Brendan Lynch (McGregor). But protection comes at a price. Lynch and his crew have plans for their young protegee. Upon release, JR must help secure Lynch's freedom, staging a daring prison break. As a reward, he’s invited to join the crew as they plan a gold heist that promises to deliver millions. However, as things start to go wrong, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues. Son of a Gun is the feature debut of Aussie writer/director Julius Avery. A24 Films will open in the US, but no date is set.
