Patrick Wilson & Ian McShane in Crime Film 'The Hollow Point' Trailer

The Hollow Point Trailer

"The real concern here is - what's going to happen if this bullet don't make its destination." Vertical Ent. has debuted an official trailer for a crime thriller titled The Hollow Point, set in a small town along the U.S. & Mexico border. Patrick Wilson plays a new sheriff in the town, but things get go from bad to worse when the cartel starts hitting back. The cast includes Ian McShane, Lynn Collins, John Leguizamo, Jim Belushi, Michael Flynn and Derek Boone. This looks gritty and violent, hopefully with some good twists in it. Leguizamo looks gnarly as a bad guy, but the fight between Wilson and McShane seems the most interesting. This looks like a much more violent, totally brutal version of Sicario focused on the local cops.

Here's the first official trailer for Gonzalo López-Gallego's The Hollow Point, originally from Yahoo:

After being involved in fatal run-in with a gun smuggler, Leland (Ian McShane) is replaced with a new sheriff, Wallace (Patrick Wilson). Wallace's reign won't be any easier, though, especially once the cartel starts striking back against law enforcement in a small town along the U.S. & Mexico border. The Hollow Point is directed by Spanish filmmaker Gonzalo López-Gallego, of the films El rey de la montaña, Apollo 18 and Open Grave previously. The screenplay is written by Nils Lyew. This first premiered at the Bilbao Fantasy Film Festival and also played at the Edinburgh Film Festival this year. Vertical Entertainment will release The Hollow Point in select theaters starting December 16th later this fall. Anyone want to see it?

Was Derek Bone in the trailer? I like Derek Bone, he is probably one of the best unknown's out there. He was in Everwoods with Gregory Smith, he played Todd. Todd is cool. Derek Bone is someone you should be watching for, I have a feeling we're going to get a lot of Bone in the next few years!

Two BAMFS. Are better than one.

The thought of watching John Leguizamo films always interest me, although I rarely any of them.

Why does it interest you to "watch" Leguizamo's films?

They probably got tainted with Leguizamo's crowning achievement "The Pest"...

Never heard about this one. Just checked it out on rotten and it's scored pretty low. Cult classic? ;D

The rating is accurate. It's a throw-away comedy and a box office bomb for Leguizamo. Some people think it's great, but most (including myself) find it to be a POS from the 90's...

RAW_D on Oct 4, 2016


Never bothered to see it. And I like Leguizamo.

I assume it was a "pay the rent" role for Leguizamo. Dude was pretty young, wasn't established, and maybe needed the paycheck. He's since proven himself as a solid actor though.

RAW_D on Oct 4, 2016


Very possible. And yeah, he's a versatile actor. Always interesting to watch.

grimjob on Oct 5, 2016


Yes, 'The Pest' has skewed my opinion of him. I thought he was good in 'Spawn.' Any part I see him play, he's usually solid.

POS means Pile of S**t ? ;D

I think he works better as an actor than a comedian, but at this point it's been a long time since I've seen his shtick. That ability to move from comedy is intriguing, just not intriguing enough for me to watch his films. Maybe it's time to give it a go. I guess what I'm saying that is if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change.

Damn, looks intense. I'm in love with Ian McShane. In a totally hetero way. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

grimjob on Oct 3, 2016


Actually there is.

CyraNOSE on Oct 6, 2016


Your opinion, and that's fine. Not interested in getting in this debate on a movie website. Have a nice day.

grimjob on Oct 6, 2016


As said, that was intense. And again, as said, I also tend to love J. Leguizano and I. McShane. Besides, the story looks promising. Not really believable, but well crafted. So, yes, I'm for it ...

Color palette switches between yellow and blue. Why? It's filmed a la Coen Bros. Which is a good thing. I'm really interested.

tarek on Oct 4, 2016


This looks BADA$$!!! Great cast (Patrick Wilson is highly underrated these days, his performance is still one of my favorite things about "Watchmen") and intense premise. All kinds of cool in this trailer!
