Neon, the film studio only second to A24 (In the ECmovieguys humble opinion) has revealed the first trailer for their new head turning heist thriller, Racer and the Jailbird. The sexy new foreign crime film is from Bullhead director Michaël Roskam, who also helmed one of my personal favorite films of this decade; the highly underseen Tom Hardy film, The Drop. A must see crime drama for any film fan, The Drop also features the late James Gandolfini in his last film role.
Director Michaël Roskam's Racer and The Jailbird show cases two rising film stars, Matthias Schoenaerts, who can currently be seen in the Jennifer Lawrence spy thriller Red Sparrow. Plus, the stunningly beautiful Adèle Exarchopoulos who first made her way on to the film scene with the jaw dropping steamy romance, Blue is the Warmest Color.
Check it out.
"As a member of a notorious Brussels gang renowned for their expertly-executed robberies, Gigi (frequent Roskam collaborator Matthias Schoenaerts, The Danish Girl, Red Sparrow) tends to his front, a luxury automobile import-export business, in his downtime. Sparks fly when he meets glamorous and affluent race car driver Bibi (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Color), and despite their wildly different backgrounds, the pair fall instantly and tragically in love. While Gigi attempts to break away from his illicit history, two things stand in the couple’s way to a happy life together: an unrelenting mob hungry for another heist, and the cops that are closing in on them."
