Mel Gibson & Vince Vaughn in First 'Dragged Across Concrete' Trailer
"There's a lot of imbeciles out there." Lionsgate has unveiled a trailer for Dragged Across Concrete, the latest slow burn crime thriller from acclaimed filmmaker S. Craig Zahler (of Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99). This first premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, just one year after Brawl played there, and once again has Zahler working with Vince Vaughn. Dragged Across Concrete stars Mel Gibson & Vince Vaughn as two cops who get suspended after a bust caught on camera. So they decide to go rogue and end up discovering something much bigger. It's an incredibly violent, dark, extra brutal film - expected with Zahler - but so much more unforgiving than Brawl. The cast includes Jennifer Carpenter, Laurie Holden, Don Johnson, Michael Jai White, Thomas Kretschmann, Tory Kittles, and Udo Kier. I wasn't sure how they'd handle this film, but it's almost a perfect trailer thanks to that "Shotgun Safari" song.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for S. Craig Zahler's Dragged Across Concrete, direct from YouTube:
Dragged Across Concrete follows two police detectives who find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics is leaked to the media. With little money and no options, the embittered policemen descend into the criminal underworld and find more than they wanted waiting in the shadows. Dragged Across Concrete is both written and directed by American filmmaker S. Craig Zahler, director of the films Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99 previously. This premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and also played at Beyond Fest and the London Film Festival. Lionsgate will release Zahler's Dragged Across Concrete in select theaters + on VOD starting March 22nd next month. Anyone interested in this?
I heard about this one some time ago. And now, I wait for the next trailer because I really don't know what to think of it. A bit messy trailer ...

the first twenty seconds or so was funny...the rest was ..."huh?"

I agree. About the only thing I like about this director's work is the title of the one Bone Tomahawk. That was a pretty good movie until he ruined it in the end with the way, way over the top very graphic violence. It just wasn't needed and revealed an immaturity and an ugly sensibility of this director that totally tuned me off to his work.

Daaaaaaamn! YES! One of the best scripts I read last year.

Along with the Silver Lake script? You seem to be reading the best of the year scripts a lot so I was wondering how that comes to be...how you get your hands on these scripts? I worked in film for many years and enjoy reading scripts before they are made and then seeing how they succeeding in filming them...or if they failed to.

Well....that was a strange trailer.... I like the chemistry here and the title is pretty cool as well. Bone Tomahawk was an interesting "horror western", so the guy has talent. I'm apt to give him the benefit of the doubt. Could be a hidden gem?

Mel is so boring when he's sober. Will somebody get that man a drink!

Vince Vaughn has done a few interesting movies these past couple of years. One such film is Brawl in Cell Block 99. the music sounds amazing.

This is the same director. His first movie, Bone Tomahawk, is amazing.

It's the new Murtaw and Riggs. But now they're bringing Sonny Crockett into the mix. (i'm 17 and i love cop shows, don't judge me.)
