Evictors assemble. Here’s the final trailer for 99 Homes, the topical thriller starring Michael Shannon as Rick Carver, a ruthless Florida real estate magnate who kicks Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield) out of his house before the jobless single father can battle the bank that has cheated him. Nash becomes determined to get his family’s home back and protect his mother (Laura Dern) and son (newcomer Noah Lomax) from the fallout. He resorts to teaming up with the guy who evicted him and takes to fleecing ordinary folks to print money from foreclosures. Meanwhile, Nash is hiding it all from his kinfolk.
Writer-director Ramin Bahrani‘s film bowed at Venice in 2014 and went on to play Telluride and Toronto last fall before screening at Sundance in January and winning the Grand Prize at Deauville last month. Deadline’s Pete Hammond says Shannon is a shoo-in for a Supporting Actor Oscar nom for the film, which opened last week in NYC via Broad Green Pictures. It expands today to Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities before going wide on October 9.
