Logan Lucky Trailer

"They gotta know what we want ’em to know." Bleecker Street has debuted the first official trailer for the new Steven Soderbergh heist film, titled Logan Lucky. We all thought Soderbergh was done making new movies, but he decided to jump back into the game and bring us another goofy comedy. Channing Tatum and Adam Driver star as brothers who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina. The ensemble cast includes Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterson, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, with Hilary Swank, and introducing Daniel Craig as "Joe Bang". Ohh this looks like it's going to be so much fun. I'm loving all the southern accents, the cast is totally nuts, and I can't wait to see if they actually pull off the heist or not. Rock 'n roll.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky, direct from YouTube:

Trying to reverse a family curse, brothers Jimmy (Channing Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Adam Driver) set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. Logan Lucky is directed by prominent American (indie) filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, of films including Sex Lies and Videotape, Out of Sight, Traffic, Ocean's 11, 12 & 13, Solaris, The Good German, Che, The Girlfriend Experience, The Informant, Contagion, Haywire, Magic Mike, Side Effects, and Behind the Candelabra previously. The screenplay is written by Rebecca Blunt. Bleecker Street will release Logan Lucky in theaters everywhere starting August 18th later this summer. First impression?

    Daniel Craig, hilarious!!!!

    That's one of the worst shopped posters I've ever seen. Looks like cardboard cutouts.
  • Could be fun. The soundtrack should be good too.

    How can you not like losers like these?
    Awesome!! That touting is supreme!!!

    Ahhhhh...they're kinda laying on the stupid, red-neck 'aren't we being funny' thing a little too thick and obvious for me. I really liked S.S.'s Out of Sight with George Cooney and Jennifer Lopez and Don Cheadle...a lot...but this doesn't look anywhere near how funny and smart and just damn good that film was. I'll take a huge pass on this. Especially Craig's simplistic take on dumbness. What's with this obvious 'acting' dumb and hoping to be funny stuff nowadays like with Brad Pitt's same take on the war movie he just attempted?

      Well I think this looked funny. I like Soderbergh's movies. Some more than others, of course. Out of Sight is my favorite,though. I always wondered why Clooney and Lopez never worked together again. They had smokin' chemistry.

        I agree. They were really good together. I don't know, you might be right in that this looks funny. It seemed a bit too on the head and obvious to me, but it might be worth it to actually watch the whole thing and give it a chance. I'll no doubt just wait for however long it takes and watch it when it comes around onto my cable channels. Thanks for the reply.

    This looks like utter rubbish. A terrible trailer, a god-awful poster and one of the worst titles I've ever seen for a film since P2. Just trash. And Side Effects was going to be his last film too? Make up your mind. Steven Soderbergh is probably the greatest example of a "hit-or-miss" type of director. His hits are home-runs (my favourite of his being The Limey) and his misses are embarrassing (Ocean's Twelve is one of the most pathetic films that I've ever had the misfortune of seeing, it's first-class trash in every-conceivable-way).

    • But seriously, tell us how you REALLY feel...
    • Bo
      Well, I for one firmly agree with you regarding Mr. Soderbergh and his work...and this trailer and poster and title, etc. The Limey was good. As I stated, I really liked, and still do, Out of Sight. Side Effects was terrible. As was that HBO debacle about Liberace. Ugh! Got nothing against ole Liberace...he wasn't my cup of tea...but the movie was just awful. Cheers.
  • I'm indifferent about this. I love me some good ol' redneck robberies, but this seems like it's toeing the stereotypical line a bit too closely. Great cast involved, and Soderbergh has had glimpses of greatness occasionally (when he's not debating on whether or not to bail from directing), but honestly I'd rather see Baby Driver instead. Probably will wait for cable/Netflix for this.
