Promised Land reteams Gus Van Sant and his Good Will Hunting star Matt Damon in a story about a natural gas conglomerate that descends on a small farming town. Damon and Frances McDormand are the company’s point people who run into plenty of problems once they arrive. John Krasinski, Rosemarie DeWitt and Hal Holbrook co-star. Damon and Krasinski co-wrote the script based on a Dave Eggers story. Focus Features is releasing this one in an Oscar-qualifying run December 28 before expanding in January.
