Director Matt Shakman cut his teeth directing FXX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” but he makes his feature film directorial debut with a very different type of comedy in Cut Bank, a dark movie set in the town of Cut Bank, Montana where the town’s first murder leads to the town’s odd cast of characters turning on each other.
A24 has released the first trailer and two posters from the movie, which stars Liam Hemsworth as Dwayne McLaren, a young man who dreams of escaping small town life in Cut Bank with his girlfriend Cassandra (Teresa Palmer). When Dwayne witnesses an awful crime, he tries to leverage a bad situation into a scheme to get rich quickly but he finds that fate and an unruly accomplice are working against him. Thrust into the middle of a police investigation spearheaded by the local sheriff (John Malkovich), everything goes from bad to worse in this all-American thriller. It co-stars Billy Bob Thorton, Bruce Dern, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Oliver Platt.
You can check out the new trailer and the posters below.
Cut Bank will premiere on DirecTV on February 26 before its limited theatrical release on April 3.
