The bank is about to foreclose on their momma’s farm, and her boys don’t have the funds to thwart it. Seems there’s just one solution to raise the necessary capital: Rob a bunch of that bank’s branches. Enter a Texas Ranger who is about to retire but “may have one hunt left in me.”
Here’s the new trailer for Hell Or High Water, which premieres next week in the Un Certain Regard sidebar at Cannes. Jeff Bridges is the foul-mouthed lawman out to solve the string of hold-ups perpetrated by brothers Tanner (Ben Foster), a hotheaded ex-con, and Toby (Chris Pine), a divorced father with no record.
Gil Birmingham and Katy Mixon co-star in the drama from director David Mackenzie. Sicario scribe Taylor Sheridan wrote the screenplay. The pic is produced by Sidney Kimmel, Peter Berg, Carla Hacken and Julie Yorn and exec produced by Gigi Pritzker, Bill Lischak, Michael Nathanson, Rachel Shane, John Penotti and Bruce Toll. CBS Films and Lionsgate open Hell Or High Water on August 12 in limited release, followed by a wide expansion the next weekend.
