READ MORE: Watch: Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are Still Causing Mischief in ‘Band of Robbers’ Trailers
In 2016, Tom Sawyer is a parody of a police officer and Huckleberry Finn is a mysterious and weathered former convict. Welcome to the new world of small time crooks in “Band of Robbers,” directed by Aaron and Adam Nee.
“Band of Robbers” is an updated comedic adaptation of Mark Twain’s most referenced works, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.” Starring Kyle Gallner, Adam Nee, Matthew Gray Gubler and Hannibal Buress, “Band of Robbers” takes the legendary story and sets it in modern times, proving the timelessness of the works’ themes and characters.
In an exclusive clip above, Sawyer sports ray-bans and acts as uncomfortably bro-like as can be in the face of the newly released and understandably bitter Huck. “Band of Robbers” hits theaters and VOD platforms January 15.
