Indie Trailer Sunday: Perrier's Bounty Starring Cillian Murphy

The new indie trailer I'm featuring today is an extended trailer for Ian Fitzgibbon's Irish gangster dramedy Perrier's Bounty, which I first saw at the Toronto Film Festival late last year (read my review). It's not exactly an incredible film, but it is pretty damn good. And the best thing about it is the fantastic Irish (and British) cast that includes Cillian Murphy, Jim Broadbent, Brendan Gleeson, and Jodie Whittaker (who starred in that Peter O'Toole film Venus). If you couldn't get this from the trailer, it's about a kid who gets wrapped up in some mob debt and tries to clean things up. It's actually a lot of fun. Check it out below!
Watch the first extended trailer for Ian Fitzgibbon's Perrier's Bounty:
Perrier's Bounty is directed by Irish filmmaker Ian Fitzgibbon, who has an acting and writing background and last directed the feature A Film with Me in It as well as a few made-for-TV films. The script was written by fellow Irishman Mark O'Rowe, of Intermission and Boy A previously. This first premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last year and is being released by Optimum Releasing in the UK. Although this has a US release date, I'm not sure who is distributing, but we'll find out soon. Perrier's Bounty should hit limited theaters starting on May 14th, 2010 this summer. Anyone else interested in check this out now?

"you saved my legs......you could have cost me my life!" - i'm watching it just for that classic line alone. (besides, foreign crime films usually kick ass)
