White Trash Daniel Craig is the Biggest Draw of August
I see a lot of movies, and it’s not very often that I get to experience a trailer I haven’t already seen a dozen times before the movie starts. I swear I saw that Transformers trailer at least a dozen times over the last few months, and the Star Wars trailer now seems to be on a loop before every screening.
But, a couple of weeks ago, I got to see a trailer I hadn’t already seen. I’m not sure where the site was on the day it was released (probably talking about Trump. GOD, remember when this was a movie review website?), but somehow, the new Soderbergh film slipped through the cracks, all the more strange considering that it’s Soderbergh’s first film since he “retired” from making films.
It also looks super fucking fun. It’s a heist film, but the best kind of heist film: One that involves a heist pulled off by simple people (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver) with the assistance of Daniel Craig, doing his damndest to convince us he can play white trash (we see right through it, Craig!)
The film also stars Hilary Swank, Katie Holmes, a nearly unrecognizable Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Sebastain Stan, and Katherine Waterston, and holy shit, I cannot wait.
