McConaughey Goes Legal in 'The Lincoln Lawyer' Teaser Trailer

Another Lincoln gets his debut today, too! Lionsgate has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Brad Furman's The Lincoln Lawyer, a fairly intense legal action-drama starring Matthew McConaughey as a lawyer in Beverly Hills who conducts some very shady business out of the back of his classy Lincoln town car. The trailer starts out kind of comical, but gets intense pretty damn quickly when Mickey Haller (McConaughey) takes on a case involving Ryan Phillippe, who apparently beat up some girl but has some sordid past. It also stars John Leguizamo, William H. Macy and Marisa Tomei. What a way to end the trailer, too.
Watch the official trailer for Brad Furman's The Lincoln Lawyer from YouTube:
A lawyer conducts business from the back of his Lincoln town car for a high-profile client in Beverly Hills.
The Lincoln Lawyer is directed by upcoming filmmaker Brad Furman, of numerous shorts and the indie The Take previously. The screenplay is written by veteran screenwriter John Romano (Dark Angel, Intolerable Cruelty, Nights in Rodanthe) and is based on Michael Connelly's book of the same name. This was produced by Lakeshore and Lionsgate will be bringing Lincoln Lawyer to theaters starting on March 18th next year.

I am a huge fan of Michael Connolly in general and this book in particular. This looks pretty damn good.

I agree nelson McConaughey is a good actor but sabotages himself over and over again with crap Rom-Coms so its good to see him in something like this proving he can act.

I'm right there with Nelson-CLAW. I hope that McConaughey is finally growing up and this is a new start in a serious acting career. He certainly has the talent to get there. This looks like a good solid effort, well worth the ticket price to see something adult for a change.

There is no client as scary as an innocent man. This is one of Connelly's best in his 20 year career at the top. It looks sublimely accurate and true. The tone seems perfect. Let's hope for success and some sequels and perhaps a Bosch adaptation. McConnaughey proved himself in the late nineties. He can get back to his A Time To Kill standard

Love Connelly, great cast. It's nice to see him do something worth seeing. The romantic comedy thing wasn't workin' for me. Although I did like We are Marshall, but before that it was Reign Of Fire. Far and few between I'd say.

Contact was the movie that made me really like McConaughey. I haven't seen any of his flicks since Sahara, which wasn't bad. Nice to see him take a really serious role again, tho.

Tension AND William H. Macy. I'm in.

Lincoln Lawyer looks good. A time to kill was his second best role so far behind dazed and confused. Definitely think I will check this one out! http://on.fb.me/gUFvA3
