The first trailer has dropped for Logan Lucky, the upcoming caper comedy that reunites Magic Mike director Steven Soderbergh with Channing Tatum.
Following Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13, Soderbergh is back in heist mode with a picture about two brothers (Tatum & Adam Driver) who decide to execute a robbery during a big NASCAR race. Daniel Craig plays Joe Bang, a burly, blond-haired criminal who is brought in to help the brothers with the heist.
This brings about the end to Soderbergh’s “retirement” from the big screen, which lasted a total of four years. It looks like a good bit of fun, with one hell of cast – including Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough and Sebastian Stan – in quirky character mode. That being said, hopefully we’re not spending time with a group of one-note caricatures.
Logan Lucky will arrive in Australia on August 17 and hits US cinemas on August 18.
Official synopsis for Logan Lucky:
