Above, you get a good look at the impressive cast of John Hillcoat‘s Lawless, which opens in theaters August 29th. We saw the first trailer a little while back, and the film looks excellent. Here, we get a good look at all the characters in action, with most of them holding guns or anticipating some type of violence. The awesome cast is rounded out by Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Shia LeBouf, Jason Clarke, and Jessica Chastain.
Chastain spoke with USA Today and had the following to say about her role in the film, which includes a nude scene.
“It will be totally embarrassing, I am going to be bright red. I’ll have to cover my eyes during that scene.” But do not expect her to be exploited in those moments. ”I am a woman very much in control in that scene,” she added. “I am not being objectified. So I was excited to shoot it. It puts the woman in a very powerful position.”
So there is something for the young men to look forward to in the film, in addition to a great story, good actors, and an accomplished director. The film premieres this week at the Cannes Film Festival before it opens in theaters at the end of August.
