Watch: One More 'David and Goliath' Trailer for 'Hell or High Water'
"Y'all been here for a while? Long enough to watch a bank getting robbed that has been robbing me for 30 years…" CBS Films has unveiled one more official trailer for David Mackenzie's modern western Hell or High Water, from the writer of Sicario and the director of Starred Up. Chris Pine and Ben Foster star as brothers who decide to rob a couple of banks in small towns in Texas. Close to retirement, the Texas Ranger who decides to hunt them down is Marcus, played by Jeff Bridges. The cast includes Katy Mixon, Dale Dickey, Kevin Rankin, Marin Ireland and Gil Birmingham. This is a helluva film and I highly recommend catching it in theaters. See it because Jeff Bridges is badass in it, see it because the script is outstanding, see it because David Mackenzie is a talented director. There's plenty of good reasons to see it.
Here's the new "David and Goliath" trailer for David Mackenzie's Hell or High Water, from YouTube:
Two brothers—Toby (Chris Pine), a straight-living, divorced father trying to make a better life for his son; and Tanner (Ben Foster), a short-tempered ex-con with a loose trigger finger—come together to rob branch after branch of the bank that is foreclosing on their family land. The hold-ups are part of a last-ditch scheme to take back a future that powerful forces beyond their control have stolen from under their feet. Vengeance seems to be theirs until they find themselves in the crosshairs of a relentless, foul-mouthed Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) looking for one last triumph on the eve of his retirement. As the brothers plot a final bank heist to complete their plan, a showdown looms at the crossroads where the last honest law man and a pair of brothers with nothing to live for except family collide. Hell or High Water is directed by David Mackenzie (of Starred Up, Perfect Sense and Hallam Foe previously) from a screenplay written by Taylor Sheridan. CBS Films will release the film in theaters starting August 12th this summer.

Looks great, but I'm a little tired of the cliché "banks are terrible" lines already.

People keep getting robbed by banks, so, I guess the argument still stands.

I think the issue cuts both ways. There are "robber" banks and there are many types of customers, i.e. greedy, morons, etc. Different incentives drive the behavior of both. An example, a buddy, who worked as a teller, found that some people would overdraw on RedBox videos for days. This lead to overdraw fees of 40$/day. When he asked the customer about it, the customer just stated that RedBox was a really good deal at a 1$/day. In this example is the bank robbing the person or is person a moron and can't understand the consequences of their actions. I can't understand why the overdraft fee is so high, and I can't understand why that person would rent a video when they can't cover the fees. For "The bank screwed my sister and is now paying for the abortion," stories there is a "The bank financed my sister's business, and now my sister is a success" story. All I'm saying is the topic is more complex than "banks are bad."

Banks suck. They are vampires.

Well, the problem is: they are not good, right?

I love bank robbing movies, but this one has meh written all over it...

'The only bigger crime besides robbing the bank is founding one' said at some point, I believe, German writer Bertolt Brecht. No one can escape from that for over than century. I like the talk about being poor since it shows this might have some connection to life ...
