Image Entertainment has released the first trailer for Atom Egoyan’s Devil’s Knot, starring Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon. Check it out in the player below, courtesy of iTunes Movie Trailers.
Based on the true crime book, “Devils Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three” by Mara Leveritt, the film tells the compelling story of three teenagers accused of the brutal 1993 murder of three 8-year old boys in Memphis, Ark. – two of them sentenced to life imprisonment and one to death. The film explores the lives of deeply misunderstood outsiders, their families and communities, and their darkest fantasies. The conviction of the West Memphis Three – Damien Echols, Jesse Misskelley, Jr., and Jason Baldwin – riled the American justice system, shocked a tightly knit religious town and outraged the nation.
Also starring Amy Ryan, Mireille Enos, Stephen Moyer, Alessandro Nivola, Matt Letscher, Michael Gladis, Rex Linn, Dane DeHaan, Bruce Greenwood, Matt Letscher and Michael Gladis, Devil’s Knot hits both theaters and iTunes on May 9.
