The first trailer has debuted for Western drama Hell or High Water, which we have for you below along with the first poster for the film.
Directed by David Mackenzie (Starred Up), the film stars Jeff Bridges (True Grit) as a “foul-mouthed lawman out to solve the string of hold-ups perpetrated by brothers Tanner (Ben Foster), a hotheaded ex-con, and Toby (Chris Pine), a divorced father with no record.”
Katy Moxon (Eastbound And Down) and Gil Birmingham (Banshee) co-star in the film which is written by Sicario screenwriter Taylor Sheridan. The film is part of Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival.
A story about the collision of the Old and New West, 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 opens in US cinemas on August 12th.
