You may have seen a trailer for Logan Lucky recently but this new UK one offers us new footage and highlights that ridiculously impressive cast for Steven Soderbergh‘s return to the big screen for the first time since 2013’s excellent Side Effects.
Channing Tatum plays Jimmy Logan, a man from a blue-collar family of West Virginia, whose clan has been famous for its bad luck for nearly 90 years. After being fired from his job, and with his ex-wife (Katie Holmes) threatening to move out of State taking their daughter with her, Jimmy decides he has to do something to get his family’s life back on track. With a little help from his brother Clyde Logan (Adam Driver), his sister Mellie (Riley Keough) and an incarcerated explosive expert, the aptly named Joe Bang (Daniel Craig), he plans to steal $14 million from the Charlotte Motor Speedway on the busiest race day of the year.
You’ve gotta watch this one, it’s definitely got a Coen Brothers vibe but it’s also great to see Soderbergh back in the cinema after he tried to retire, maybe it was too good an opportunity to turn down! Also, Daniel Craig man… aah away from Bond and loving this role already.
Logan Lucky also stars Seth Macfarlane, Sebastian Stan, Hilary Swank and Katherine Waterston. Watch…
