Cold in July

While many are used to seeing Michael C. Hall kill someone with no problem on the now completed Showtime drama series "Dexter," his role as a killer in the Sundance selected drama Cold in July is a little different. Complete with a terrible haircut, Hall plays Richard Dane, a man who ends up fatally shooting a home invader to death. But the real tension begins when the dead intruder's father (Sam Shepard) is released from prison, and seeks out revenge by targeting Richard's young son. This looks like quite an intense thriller, with a solid performance from Hall. We missed it at Sundance, but will certainly seek it out.

Here's the first trailer for Jim Mickle's Cold in July, originally from Apple:

Cold in July is directed by Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are, Stake Land), who also co-wrote the script with Nick Damici. How can a split-second decision change your life? While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane (Michael C. Hall) puts a bullet in the brain of low-life burglar Freddy Russell. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Dane soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when Freddy’s ex-con father, Ben (Sam Shepard), rolls into town, hell-bent on revenge. The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and IFC Films will send it to limited theaters on May 23rd.

    Don't freaking mess with Dexter baby!!! And I think this movie looks and sounds super intense and awesome!! Seriously Marvel or DC should so hire Michael C Hall to play one of their villains. He would be so bad ass! Kinda hoped he would have taken the role of Lex Luthor but they gave it to Jesse eisenberg... Oh well
