Good Time Trailer

"Are you feeling this?!" A24 has unveiled the first official trailer for the film Good Time, from directors Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie, the brothers behind the films Heaven Knows What and Daddy Longlegs. This film is debuting at the Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off this week, which is also why this trailer is being released to connect to the upcoming premiere in France at the festival. Robert Pattinson stars as "Connie", a wild kid in New York who gets even deeper into the crime world in an effort to get his brother out of jail. This trailer does a nice job of introducing the story and setting up everything, so dive right in. Also starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Barkhad Abdi, & Benny Safdie (as Connie's brother). This looks like it has an exceptional performance from Pattinson, so at least there's that to look out for in here. Enjoy.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for the Safdie Brothers' Good Time, direct from A24's YouTube:

Good Time Movie Poster

After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine "Connie" Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city's underworld in an increasingly desperate — and dangerous — attempt to get his brother Nick (Benny Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Connie finds himself racing against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing both their lives hang in the balance. Good Time is co-directed by filmmaking brothers Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie, of the films Heaven Knows What and Go Get Some Rosemary previously. The screenplay is written by Josh Safdie and Ronald Bronstein. This film is premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this month in competition. A24 will then release Good Time in select theaters starting August 11th later this summer.

  • Had the fun vibes of 'The Town' about it.
  • renata
    I am intrigued! Love it
  • Efterklang
    Looks good.. and heavy. Pattinson has talent.
  • I like all the effort put to make these original posters.So refreshing.
    • Some call it a comeback...
      • CyraNOSE
        No actually I think they said come on his back.
  • shiboleth
    Pattinson looks like obvious miscast, although I like the transformation. Other than that, this looks serious to some point...
    Nice trailer and play at the theme. Hopefully they can make it out alive.
  • Welly well well, didn't have much respect for Pattinson, but this....looks like a game changer for the man. Color me intrigued! Pretty great trailer with the music and vibe too...haunting and mysterious....
    • He's good in Rover with Guy Pearce. It's about as mellow as this looks though.
      • Rover slipped by me. I'll have to add it to my ever growing list.
        • It's really grim, but the performances are super good.
    • Bo
      I don't know, Raw...I've thought Pattinson has become a rather serious and interesting actor since those teen-age vampire movies where he made a fortune. He seems to pick interesting and intelligent and serious movies like Lost City of Z and Rover and a few others. I was surprised at this trailer as the whole one brother saving another brother is a bit derivative it seems, but this one looks intriguing. Besides, any movie with the great Jennifer Jason Leigh in it is worth a look...even though Hateful Eight wasn't...but that wasn't her fault. Cheers.
      • Yeah, I've missed him in both Lost City of Z and Rover and Twilight was the last thing I could remember him in. Glad to see he's rising above the ashes of that garbage franchise. The only thing good about the Hateful Eight was Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson, but other than that, COMPLETELY overrated.
        • Bo
          Yea, well...Twilight speaks for itself. It sure made him a rich man. Since then he seems to have stayed away from that kind of nonsense and the super hero comic book stuff. I gotta admire him for that. God knows he is set for life so he can do what he pleases so it's kinda cool he's got a head on his shoulders. Not sure anything was good about Hateful Eight. Just saying. I read the original script and found myself chuckling a bit thru out the reading of it, but the movie was unwatchable...just terrible! At least to me which is all the really matters when you come down to it. Righto?
          • Exactamundo! I've read that Pattinson is pretty down to earth. Drives the same truck he bought for $2,200 out in L.A. The role I was MOST excited for him to have was when there was rumors of them rebooting my favorite 80's nostalgic piece "Condorman" (with Micheal Crawford). I know, I know it's garbage, but as a kid growing up in a small town with limited video options, it was my go to. And the book it's based off of was pretty clever (Game of X by Robert Sheckley).
          • Bo
            Never heard of I get it. I grew up in a small town too, but back in the fifties so nothing much was available. I graduated in '63 and hit the ground running for the bright lights and big city of never looked back...never man.
      • CyraNOSE
        Are you kidding, you're praising Lost City of Z and Rover while downing The Hateful Eight?? hahaha!!!
        • Bo
          Not praising City of Z or my post. I've not seen either of those movies so I can't praise them. I was praising Pattinson's choice of serious movies now. If you, perhaps slowly and concentrate, read my post again you might be able to ascertain that. As far as downing Hateful Eight, you got that part correct. If you liked that movie you and I have nothing more to
  • Derek NOLA
    I like this so far
  • CyraNOSE
    A boy named Connie??

      The wussification of American men continues. And all criminals should be executed, not pitied.
