It's Still July, So Let's Get Patriotic With Steven Soderbergh's 'Logan Lucky'
The new TV spot for Logan Lucky brings all the red, white, and blue and I am here for it. Did you know LeAnn Rimes still sings and stuff? Cuz I didn’t!
Marking Steven Soderbergh’s long-awaited return to film (his last feature was 2013’s Side Effects, but he’s been keeping busy with TV work, directing Behind The Candelabra and The Knick), Logan Lucky looks like a southern fried version of Ocean’s Eleven. But instead of a Vegas casino, the heist this time involves Nascar. As usual though, he’s managed to assemble quite the cast. Channing Tatum and Adam Driver play the down-on-their-luck Logan brothers, who recruit their sister (Riley Keough, The Girlfriend Experience) and the delightfully named explosives expert Joe Bang (played by a platinum blonde Daniel Craig) to pull off the job. Rounding out the cast are Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, and Sebastian Stan amongst others.
Seriously though, I will be shocked if Daniel Craig doesn’t walk away with the whole damn film. He looks DELIGHTFUL, and seems to be having a blast. James Bond who, amirite?
Logan Lucky comes out August 18th. And if you missed it the first time, check out the full length trailer here.
