Bandit Trailer

"Anyone seen this guy?" Quiver Distribution has revealed an official trailer for a true story crime thriller titled Bandit, about the story of "The Flying Bandit" who robbed over 50 banks in his lifetime. This one is landing direct-to-VOD and in a few theaters in September, despite not hitting any films festivals before. The movie is based on the true life story of Gilbert Galvan Jr. (also known as "The Flying Bandit"). Galvan escaped from a Michigan prison and crossed the border into Canada. Up there he creates a new identity and falls in love, leading him to rob 59 banks and jewelry stores while being chased by a police task force. He still holds a record for the most consecutive robberies in Canadian history. Josh Duhamel stars as Gilbert / Robert, with a cast including Elisha Cuthbert, Nestor Carbonell, Mel Gibson, and Haley Webb. This is a very hyper, fast-paced trailer which doesn't really setup or sell this movie that well. There's nothing about this that really stands out, except he seems to be a master of disguise and quick changes. Check it out.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Allan Ungar's Bandit, direct from YouTube:
