Hell or High Water Trailer

"Well if that ain't Texan, then I don't know what is…" CBS Films has released another great trailer for the modern western Hell or High Water, directed by David Mackenzie, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. I saw the film there and it's surprisingly fantastic, with an outstanding script by Taylor Sheridan (of Sicario previously) that drives strong performances from the entire cast. Chris Pine and Ben Foster star as brothers who decide to rob a couple of banks in small towns in Texas. Close to retirement, the Texas Ranger who decides to hunt them down is Marcus, played by Jeff Bridges. The cast includes Katy Mixon, Dale Dickey, Kevin Rankin, Marin Ireland and Gil Birmingham. I really dug this film, and I definitely recommend it, so if this trailer grabs your interest make sure to see it in theaters.

Here's the second official trailer for David Mackenzie's Hell or High Water, found on YouTube:

Hell or High Water Poster

Two brothers—Toby (Chris Pine), a straight-living, divorced father trying to make a better life for his son; and Tanner (Ben Foster), a short-tempered ex-con with a loose trigger finger—come together to rob branch after branch of the bank that is foreclosing on their family land. The hold-ups are part of a last-ditch scheme to take back a future that powerful forces beyond their control have stolen from under their feet. Vengeance seems to be theirs until they find themselves in the crosshairs of a relentless, foul-mouthed Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) looking for one last triumph on the eve of his retirement. As the brothers plot a final bank heist to complete their plan, a showdown looms at the crossroads where the last honest law man and a pair of brothers with nothing to live for except family collide. Hell or High Water is directed by David Mackenzie (of Starred Up, Perfect Sense and Hallam Foe previously) from a screenplay written by Taylor Sheridan. CBS Films will release the film in theaters starting August 12th this summer.

    Looks really good. Great casting.

    Wow! Ben Foster and Chris Pine look fantastic! This is a must-see for me....

    Interesting director. His movie Starred Up was gritty and brutal with some good performances. Ben Foster is always on the money. Very authentic actor. Jeff Bridges always good. Chris Pine? The Star Trek guy? Hmmmmmmm.....

      Was thinking the same about Pine but he seems to do pretty well in this trailer.

        You're right, actually he does. He wasn't all that bad in that Z for Whatever movie, which wasn't that good. In the book it was based on his character wasn't even in it. It was just the two of them and it was very good. They blew it adding Pine's third character and messed up the whole dynamic, which is typical Hollywood. Still...Star Trek? I don't think so...I bet the director was forced to use some kind of name/box office actor and drew Pine's straw in order to get his film made. That would be my guess. Poor Pine, I should lay off him as he seems like a nice enough guy...but.... Star Trek?? Captain Kirk?

    Ben Foster seems to deliver the best performance here. Yeah, Jeff Bridges is here for a good measure and Chris Pine is just smart enough to choose a good film which must count for something. But, what is this? Another disillusioned story of terrible social constellation in US? I don't care about guns, violence is mostly the worst part of films like this (in that respect, if I have to choose, some mayor, governor or senator will be shot in this) but I hope there's dramatic energy directed in right direction stressing the reason for action like this ...
