Anthony Hopkins, Julia Stiles & Ray Liotta in Trailer for 'Blackway'
"You don't have to go with us. Once you do, there's no turning back…" Enderby Entertainment & Gotham Group have debuted the trailer for a thriller called Blackway, about a grotesquely crooked cop played by Ray Liotta - perfect casting for this role, that's for sure. He steps over the line one last time, assaulting a woman who then takes a small crew to confront him head on. Anthony Hopkins and Julia Stiles co-star, with a cast including Alexander Ludwig, Lochlyn Munro and Hal Holbrook. This is one of those films where you can't believe it has this cast, with that many reputable names, yet looks so awful. Even the score is terribly cheesy. No really, this just looks straight-to-cable awful. I am sorry this isn't any better than it is.
Here's the first official trailer for Daniel Alfredson's Blackway, found on YouTube:
A woman returns to her hometown in the Pacific Northwest and finds herself harassed and stalked by a former cop turned crime lord. Forsaken by the local townspeople, advised by the Sheriff to leave town, Lillian decides instead to take a stand against her sociopathic stalker, and enlists the help of an ex-logger Lester and his laconic young sidekick Nate-the only two men in town brave enough, or crazy enough, to go with her, and go up against Blackway. Blackway is directed by Swedish filmmaker Daniel Alfredson, of the original The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest sequels previously. The script is written by Gregory Jacobs & Joe Gangemi, based on the novel by Castle Freeman Jr. This first premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and opens in theaters on June 10th this summer. Anyone?

I wish they would have went for a little grittier tone than this..THING they put together. I was so into the trailer at first...I mean, look at the cast! Then the weirdest music started popping up during the second half. I don't know really...

Swear to God I thought Hal Holbrook died 10 years ago.
