Watch: Oscar Isaac vs Garrett Hedlund in First Trailer for 'Mojave'
"Who are you? No one in particular." A24 has debuted the first trailer for William Monahan's new thriller Mojave through Entertainment Tonight; view the full trailer below. Oscar Isaac stars along with Garrett Hedlund in this tale of two drifters who meet in the desert. The cast includes Hayley Magnus, Dania Ramirez, and apparently Mark Wahlberg and Walton Goggins, though there isn't much of them in this. It starts out with one story, twists into something more thrilling halfway through, and becomes badass at the end. I'm not sure if this will actually be any good. "This started in the desert, and it's going to end there."
Here's the first official trailer for William Monahan's Mojave, first debuted by Entertainment Tonight:
A near-suicidal artist (Garrett Hedlund) escapes to the desert only to encounter his doppelganger-like antagonist, a homicidal drifter (Oscar Isaac). Mojave is both written and directed by veteran screenwriter-turned-filmmaker William Monahan, who made his directorial debut on the film London Boulevard. He has written the scripts for Kingdom of Heaven, The Departed, Body of Lies, Edge of Darkness, and The Gambler previously. The film first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. A24 will release William Monahan's Mojave in theaters in early 2016, for those interested. Stay tuned for more. Thoughts?

It looks like they had bad start and just can't get it right. Really, that's all that is to it?

Baffles the mind he didn't get more for INSIDE LLEWELLYN DAVIS.

For me, Monahan is a great writer. I really liked all the films you mentioned above that he wrote, sans The Gambler remake...maybe...as I did watch it and liked it but the ending was not as impacting or as dark as the original's. Having said all that, I'm not too sure of Monahan as a director. The book of London Blvd. was very, very good. Monahan mangled it horribly. Especially changing the aging has been actress character to a young Kiera Knightley...whom I really like, but it wrecked the whole tone and idea of the book's themes...younger guy, older woman. Too bad as he had a great cast and still it just wasn't very good. Plus, the digital look of this film just stinks, in my opinion. I grew up in the Mojave Desert right on the Colorado River and it's beauty and majesty is not captured the way Monahan attempted using digital. I hate it! Think of how amazing Lawrence of Arabia looked on film then look at this. Ugh! Oh well, progress I suppose. I loved The Drop and it was shot on digital so it can be done. It wasn't here, in this trailer.

Well, the music killed it. Just...horrific. But otherwise looks pretty intense?

I smell a FIGHT CLUB-like scenario happening.

Did we just see the end of the movie? 2:12, we see someone get shot in the neck and begin to fall over like dead and at 2:32, we see how that guy gets shot in the neck.

Looks like it could be good, but Williams Monahan is behind the camera. He's never directed anything of significant value and this movie looks like more of a gratuitous venture in violence than having any kind of context or substance behind it. A waste of two very fine actors.
