Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges and Ben Foster star in Hell or High Water, a crime-drama earning strong early reviews.
CBS Films has dropped a new trailer for the film, which tells of two brothers (Pine, Foster) that find themselves in the crosshairs of a relentless, foul-mouthed Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) after they rob a bank.
Apart from the film looking sumptuous, thanks to cinematography by Giles Nuttgens (Dom Hemingway, What Maisie Knew, The Fundamentals of Caring), the film boasts what appears to be a robust screenplay by Sicario scribe Taylor Sheridan. We’re in.
Hell or High Water, also starring Dale Dickey, Gil Birmingham, Katy Mixon, and Kevin Rankin, will open in the U.S. in limited release on August 12 before going wide on August 19. No Australia release date has been announced as yet.
Synopsis for Hell or High Water:
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.
