We’ve been sending out the alerts about Lawless, the latest film from John Hilcoat, director of the classic pick-me-ups The Proposition and The Road. While Lawless may not have any more love for humanity, it’s definitely promising legit action and even a little skin. Based on the true story of a family of Depression-era bootleggers, this is like Boardwalk Empire meets Justified, with a cast of Hollywood’s fastest rising stars. Tom Hardy, Shia Labeouf, Jessica Chastain, Dane DeHaan, Mia Wasikowska, and Jason Clarke all have roles in the film, and for the older generation, can you ask for better representatives than Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman? Check the trailer above, and see if it doesn’t get your pulse pounding.
