We guess we’ll find out for sure when the reviews start coming for the Sundance Film Festival closing entry “Son Of No One,” but from the first trailer for the film it plays pretty much like every second rate cop drama — “Pride & Glory,” “Brooklyn’s Finest,” etc — to come along in the last few years.
The film stars Channing Tatum, Katie Holmes, Ray Liotta, Juliette Binoche, Al Pacino and Tracy Morgan (who worryingly doesn’t have a single line of dialogue featured in the trailer), in the story about a cop (Tatum) who “follows the footsteps of his deceased father and is assigned to the neighborhood where he grew up, the projects in Queens. The post 9/11 atmosphere there is tense and he soon runs into an old secret which threatens to destroy his life and family.” But really, this is your average corrupt cop drama with a pretty much every beat in the latest spot for the picture feels like something we’ve seen dozens of times already in other films. We also want to know if Tatum’s and Pacino’s moustaches will have a showdown in the movie. We hope so.
“Son Of No One” premieres in Park City on January 28th. Check out the trailer below. [MTV]
