A few years ago, director Magic Mike and Ocean’s 11 helmer Steven Soderbergh announced that he wasn’t going to direct any more feature films. However, as with his many earlier threats to retire, it’s turned out to be premature, as he’s now returning with Logan Lucky, his first film since 2013. The new movie has been described as being a bit of an anti-Ocean’s 11, with people going on a heist but stripping out the glamour.
The movie is about two brothers, Jimmy (Channing Tatum) and Clyde (Adam Driver), who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina. That involves them needing the help of the seemingly nutty Joe Bang (Daniel Craig). The impressive cast also includes Riley Keough, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Seth MacFarlane, Macon Blair, Hilary Swank, Sebastian Stan, and Katie Holmes.
Logan Licky is out in the US in August. No UK date is currently set. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
