Indie Trailer Sunday: 'Wasteland' UK Thriller with Luke Treadaway
"Nods to The Usual Suspects and the Oceans franchise." That critic's quote should be enough to pique your interest, but the rest of the trailer is pretty good, too. Today's trailer is for a UK heist film titled Wasteland which first premiered up at TIFF last year. It stars "hot" British actor Luke Treadaway, seen in Attack the Block & Clash of the Titans, who leads a group of friends in a robbery of the local kingpin. This looks like a polished, entertaining heist thriller on top of a good revenge flick, I'm curious to check it out even though I missed it at the festivals. The cast includes Matthew Lewis, Iwan Rheon, Vanessa Kirby and Timothy Spall.
Watch the theatrical trailer for Rowan Athale's Wasteland, also in high def from Apple:
After being released from prison for a crime he didn't commit, Harvey Miller (Luke Treadaway) has revenge on his mind. He recruits his three best friends to help him rob the local drug kingpin whose betrayal put him away in the first place. As the kingpin catches wind of the con, Harvey's plan evolves into a suspenseful and exciting scheme full of surprising twists that will keep you guessing until the very end. Wasteland is written & directed by English filmmaker Rowan Athale, making his feature debut after the short film A Good Life. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Oscilloscope Labs will be releasing Wasteland in US theaters starting July 26th and it's also available VOD and iTunes right now. For more, visit their site.

Iwan Rheon & Matthew Lewis? I didn't even need a trailer... But it still looks awesome.

this looks like an "exceptionally polished" turd. yet another gritty gangster/heist film about somebody hard done by getting even - how many more of these can we churn out? I am thoroughly disillusioned with the current state of the British film industry.
