Just in time for its May 16 premiere at the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival, the first trailer of “Hell or High Water” has been released.
Directed by David Mackenzie and written by “Sicario” scribe Taylor Sheridan, the modern action drama follows two brothers Toby (Chris Pine), described as a straight-living, divorced father trying to make a better life for his son, and Tanner (Ben Foster), a short-tempered ex-con, who team up to rob a bank to save their family’s farm.
Jeff Bridges plays an “almost retired” Texas ranger in pursuit of the crime doers. Gil Birmingham and Katy Mixon also co-star.
The film, previously known as “Comancheria,” is produced by Sidney Kimmel, Peter Berg, Carla Hacken and Julie Yorn and executive produced by Gigi Pritzker, Bill Lischak, Michael Nathanson, Rachel Shane, John Penotti and Bruce Toll.
“Hell or High Water” will be in select theaters on August 12 and nationwide on August 19. You can also check out the latest poster below:
