The Devil's Knot

After an unofficial trailer arrived last fall, the first official trailer for the homicide drama The Devil's Knot has arrived. Though this seems like the kind of film that would be saved for an awards season run, the drama from Chloe director Atom Egoyan arrives this summer, boasting an impressive cast that includes Colin Firth, Reese Witherspoon, Amy Ryan, Dane De Haan and more. The film focuses on the well-known West Memphis murder trial and conviction of three teens who were wrongly accused and imprisoned for the death of three children in what was believed to be a satanic ritual. It's definitely reminsicent of Mystic River in parts but it's just set in the South instead of the city. Watch the trailer now!

Here's the first trailer for Atom Egoyan's The Devil's Knot, originally from Apple:

The Devil's Knot is directed by Atom Egoyan (Chloe) and written by Paul Harris Boardman and Scott Derrickson (both writers of The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Beware the Night), based on Mara Leveritt's book of the same name. The film follows the trial in the wake of the savage murders of three young children believed to be committed by three teenagers who ended up being wrongly accused of the crimes as part of a satanic ritual. Colin Firth, Reese Witherspoon, Amy Ryan, Dane DeHaan, Stephen Moyer and Mireille Enos all star in the film which premiered at TIFF 2013 and RLJ/Image Entertainment releases it on May 9th.

There's a reason this is not being saved for award season. The miracle is that it's being released at all. Read the reviews from TIFF.
