Watch: First Teaser Trailer For 'Glassland' With 'Transformers 4' Star Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, Toni Collette & More

If you don’t know the name Jack Reynor, you will soon. The actor made waves with his turn in the Irish drama “What Richard Did,” which led to his role in this summer’s biggest blockbuster, “Transformers: Age Of Extinction.” And coming soon he’s got a part in the highly anticipated “Macbeth” starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. But before that, he’s going back to his indie roots with “Glassland,” and the first teaser trailer has arrived.

Co-starring Michael Smiley, Toni Collette and Will Poulter, and written and directed by Gerard Barrett, the story follows a young taxi driver trying to save himself and his family from the dark side of Dublin. Here’s the official synopsis: 

In a desperate bid to save his mother from a crippling alcohol addiction and reunite his broken family, John, a young taxi driver on the fringes of the criminal underworld is forced to take a job which will see him pushed further into Dublin’s dark underbelly. But will he be prepared to act when the time comes, knowing that whatever he decides to do, his and his family’s lives will be changed forever? 
Featuring stunning performances from the multi-award winning Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense, Little Miss Sunshine), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did, Transformers 4), Michael Smiley (A Field in England) and Will Poulter (Son of Rambow, We’re the Millers) Glassland is an uncompromising and brilliantly executed portrayal of the grim reality of life for those forced to the edges of society in contemporary Ireland.

The film will make its world premiere later this month at the Galway Film Fleadh (yes, that’s how it’s spelled). Watch the trailer below. [First Showing]
