Liam Hemsworth & Teresa Palmer Find Murder in 'Cut Bank' Trailer
So far, Australian stars Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer have starred in two movies together. There's Love & Honor from a few years ago and Kill Me Three Times coming this year. Now you can add one more to the mix with Cut Bank, a new thriller about a former high school football star turned mechanic who just wants to get out of the titular small Montana town. Of course, things finally get interesting when he stumbles across a murder, and ends up in serious danger. There's an interesting supporting cast here too with Bruce Dern, Billy Bob Thornton, Oliver Platt and John Malkovich co-starring. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Matt Shakman's Cut Bank from A24:
A son of tiny Cut Bank, Montana, "the coldest spot in the nation," handsome young Dwayne McLaren (Liam Hemsworth) yearns to escape small town life with his sweet, vivacious girlfriend (Teresa Palmer). When he tries to leverage a bad situation into a seemingly straightforward get-rich-quick scheme, Dwayne finds that fate--and a bumbling, unruly accomplice--are working against him. Everything quickly goes from bad to worse. Cut Bank is directed by first-time filmmaker Matt Shakman with a Black Listed script from Robert Patino. A24 releases the film on DirecTV on February 26th and in limited theaters on April 3rd. Good?

I don't know about the two leads, but this film has a very, very impressive supporting cast; that's something for a first time director. I also thought the film was beautifully shot. I looked on IMDB to see if it was shot on film or digital and wasn't provided that information. Anyone know or know how to know?...lol... because if it was shot digital I'm a believer because up to now I just haven't been able to abide digital over film.

not completely sure, but judging by this directors history and the look of some of the shots I'm guessing it was shot digitally. Probably, the arri alexa or the panavision genesis.

Thanks for taking a stab at this, Ryan. I don't know, man. I still just looks too good to be digital. As far as his history that you mentioned, what history? This is his first feature. I took a look and he's a TV director. Stuff like The Good Wife and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia...which doesn't bode well for him in my eyes. But hey, good luck to him for making a film. It's got a geat cast and looks like a good story. Still, not sure I agree with you on your guessing it's digital. I'm still trying to find out, but have run out of options. Oh well....we shall see. Thanks again.

yah, I'm not sure. The DP has shot on film and digital, so it's up in the air, I'll definitely be interested to find out. This does look beautiful
Ryan on Feb 7, 2015
Right you are. The DP shot Beast of Southern blah blah on film and Fault of Stars digitally. I've googled the hell out of Cut Bank and can't find out squat. Damn! Well, thanks for the do-effort, Ryan. If you ever do find out let me know somehow...lol...later gator!

Hey, Ryan! Let's see if this reply of mine gets to you. I did a lot of scrolling to find our prior discussions. I just read an interview today (2/16/15) with the director of Cut Bank and he states they shot on film and why. I will try to copy the link for the whole interview in case you are interested. So, it seems I was right in that I just thought it looked to good to be digital and had to be film. Here's the link: http://moveablefest.com/moveable_fest/2014/06/matt-shakman-cut-bank.html

I love the snowball-like problem movies. Looking forward to this one!

with names like bruce dern, BB thornton, oliver platt, and john malkovich in it, this just has to be good.

I personally do not find Little Hemsworth good acting. This looks pretty boring.

I tip my hat to you
Ryan on Feb 17, 2015
Well, thank you...I'll accept the hat tip...lol...just glad that you got my information that I search wide and long for. I must say that, unfortunately, quite a few reviews of the film that I've been reading think the film missed the mark and is not very good. I'll catch it on cable down the line. The moral of all this: digital has not yet managed to look as good as film. I don't think it ever will. We'll see down the pipeline, but it'll always be compared to film and attempting to surpass film. Take care, Ryan.
