Time to rob a NASCAR race in first trailer for ‘Logan Lucky’

564

Steven Soderbergh has directed just about every type of movie under the sun. There’s legal drama Erin Brockovich, disaster film Contagion, comedy Magic Mike, and the heist thrillers of the Ocean’s 11 series. Soderbergh is returning to the screens this summer with a more humorous take on a heist film, with Logan Lucky receiving its first trailer this holiday weekend.

Channing Tatum and Adam Driver play Jimmy and Clyde Logan, two brother who are in desperate need of some cash. To this end, they devise the plan anyone would: rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during a NASCAR race. They need help though, so they recruit notorious criminal Joe Bang (Daniel Craig!) to help them out. Of course things don’t go smoothly, with the combined lack of intellect in the trailer leading to comedy gold.

The rest of the cast is nothing to scoff at either, with Sebastian Stan, Katie Holmes, Riley Keough, and Hilary Swank just a few of the names joining the fun. Logan Lucky is out on August 18.
