Anchor Bay acquired the Billy Bob Thornton-directed Jayne Mansfield’s Car during last year’s Toronto Film Festival, where it had its North American premiere. Thornton stars with Robert Duvall, John Hurt, Kevin Bacon, Katherine LaNasa, Ray Stevenson, and Robert Patrick. Thornton co-wrote it with Tom Epperson. Here’s the first trailer for the ensemble drama, which traces two sides of a 1960s family — one from the Old South, one from the UK — brought together by the death of their matriarch. It will be released on-demand August 20 and hit theaters September 13.
