Official Trailer for Texas Drama 'Hell or High Water' with Jeff Bridges
"A story about the collision of the Old and New West." CBS Films has debuted a trailer for the drama Hell or High Water, the latest film from David Mackenzie (who last made one of my favorites - Starred Up). Hell or High Water is premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this week, and will be out in US theaters in just a few months. Ben Foster and Chris Pine star as two brothers who come together to rob a bank, but end up on the run being chased by Jeff Bridges as a relentless Texas Ranger. This definitely has the vibe of a western with some contemporary sensibilities. The full cast includes Katy Mixon, Kevin Rankin, Dale Dickey, Gil Birmingham, Marin Ireland and Melanie Papalia. This looks like solid - give it a watch.
Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for David Mackenzie's Hell or High Water, in high def on Apple:
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.

Bridges is God...

Well, this director made a tough, gritty prison picture so he might do something worthwhile with this material. But Chris Pine? Spock? Or is it Capt. Kirk? Not good casting in my opinion. But Bridges and Ben Foster. Now that's good casting!

It looks like Chris Pine is trying to catch a train with good guys. Oh, I haven't seen Jeff Bridges for some time, I have a feeling I won't regret seeing him again, right?

Modern Western??? Yes, please. // It will probably pale in comparison with NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, but I will gladly take another cowboy Jeff Bridges.
