Arkansas trailer: Liam Hemsworth stars in Lionsgate’s new crime drama
Lionsgate has released the official trailer for director Clark Duke’s upcoming crime drama thriller Arkansas, featuring Liam Hemsworth’s character Kyle as he works in a drug trafficking ring led by Vince Vaughn’s Frog. Also starring John Malkovich and Duke, you can check out the video in the player below!
Based on John Brandon’s best-selling book of the same name, Arkansas weaves together three decades of Deep South drug trafficking to explore the cycle of violence that turns young men into criminals, and old men into legends.
In Clark Duke’s directorial debut, Kyle (Liam Hemsworth) and Swin (Clark Duke) live by the orders of an Arkansas-based drug kingpin named Frog (Vince Vaughn), whom they’ve never met. Posing as junior park rangers by day, they operate as low-level drug couriers by night under the watchful eye of Frog’s proxies (John Malkovich and Vivica A. Fox). However, after one too many inept decisions, Kyle and Swin find themselves directly in Frog’s crosshairs, who mistakenly sees them as a threat to his empire.
Written by Duke and Andrew Boonkrong in his feature screenwriting debut, the film stars Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games franchise, Independence Day: Resurgence), Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine franchise, Kick-Ass franchise), Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years a Slave, Boardwalk Empire), Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day franchise, Kill Bill franchise), Eden Brolin (Yellowstone, Beyond), Chandler Duke (Veronica Mars, Where’s This Party?) with Academy Award nominee John Malkovich (In The Line of Fire, The New Pope), and Vince Vaughn (Brawl In Cell Block 99, Wedding Crashers).
Arkansas will be released in select theaters, on Apple, Amazon, and On Demand on May 1.
