Chris Pine is on the wrong side of the law in the new trailer for “Hell Or High Water”;.
Pine stars alongside Ben Foster as a pair of brothers who resort to robbing banks in order to save their family’s farm. Their sometimes violent actions come with severe consequences when a cutthroat Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) sets his sights on bringing the pair to justice by any means necessary.
The film is screening this week at the Cannes Film Festival as part of the Un Certain Regard programme which highlights alternative and original films outside of the usual festival fare. While Bridges and Pine face off on-screen, there’s some promising talent at work behind the camera on “Hell Or High Water”;.
Writer Taylor Sheridan penned the screenplay for the Oscar-nominated “Sicario”;, which earned a spot on the 2012 Black List of the best unproduced scripts. Director David Mackenzie worked the festival circuit promoting his previous film “Starred Up”; with Jack O’Connell, earning critical raves at TIFF.
