“Man Down”


Shia LaBeouf has leaned toward the art-house in recent years, with roles in “Nymphomaniac” and “American Honey” marking a sharp contrast to his “Transformers” days. He’ll next be seen in a more conventional film, however: “Man Down,” a new thriller from director Dito Montiel. Watch its new trailer below.

LaBeouf plays a Marine who, after returning from a tour of duty in Afghanistan, finds himself on the search for his wife (Kate Mara) and son (Charlie Shotwell); he’s aided in that quest by a friend and fellow Marine (Jai Courtney) whose trigger-happy approach to conflict resolution is both a hindrance and a help. LaBeouf’s character is haunted by one wartime experience in particular, which  informs his demeanor and behavior throughout the film.
