The trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s new heist film just dropped and looks incredibly fun, not to mention packed with big name actors.
Logan Lucky is set in the high-octane Nascar racing world and involves a prize money heist by two hich brothers played by Channing Tatum and Adam Driver (who only has one arm). To pull it all off, the boys enlist the help of a felon played by Daniel Craig – a roughed-up, tattooed, ice-blond prison escapee. The trailer more than sells the film as a quirky and slightly absurdist heist comedy.
This will be director Steven Soderbergh’s first film since 2013’s Behind the Candelabra, and puts him back into the crime / heist genre… comfort food for Soderbergh as he did do the Ocean’s 11 movies after all. The director was supposedly going into retirement, but I’m pretty thrilled that he’s decided otherwise.
Logan Lucky also stars Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Sebastian Stan, Katherine Waterson, and Hillary Swank.
In select cinemas from August.
