Trailer for "Lawless" - movie about prohibition-era rural bootleggers

I'll watch anything with Guy Pearce in it. (NSFW: boobies)

Lawless (hitting theaters nationwide August 29) is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic outlaw tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant's family in his novel The Wettest County In The World, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation's most notorious crime wave.


    1. Warren Ellis looks more gloriously ragged every year. Nick’s actually in the film, playing a gangster.

  1. Am I the only one who’s thrilled to see Tom Hardy making movies that are worth a shite after watching his emasculation at the hands of the awful-for-so-many-reasons “This Means War”?

    1. I haven’t seen This Means War (thanks for the warning), but I’m thrilled that he’s getting such big roles.  I’ve been fascinated with the guy since Star Trek Nemesis.

  2. Did you really think that one emasculating role in one awful movie would derail his entire career?  Every actor who has ever been in a good or great movie has also been in many bombs, turds, and mediocrities. 

  3. Just as a side note, I thought the “NSFW: boobies” warning was funny. The underlying subtext that murder, violence, and that damnably creepy tard-and-feathered guy are all safe for work, but god forbid we see a human breast. :)

  4. Can we get some sort of restraining order to keep Shia LaBeouf from doing regional accents?

    Other than that, looks great!

    1. Can we get some sort of restraining order to keep Shia LaBeouf from doing regional accents anything?


  5. I’ll watch nothing with Shifty TheBeef in it. But I digress… Like Mark I am — or rather was — a watchanythingwithGuyPearce nut. Then I spun the suckass “Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark” last week and after Pearce’s phoned-in performance, I’m cured.

  6. I despise Shia LeBeouf for being slimy, but will overlook this for Nick Cave’s involvement. All in.

  7. I have a bit of white liquor from back at the old homestead in Burnt Chimney that’s been laying down a spell. Might take a nip in honor of Franklin County making it onto a big city publication and into a picture show.

  8. I don’t know that I would have recognized Pearce if you hadn’t mentioned him–he’s deliciously creepy here. And it’s a great cast all around.
