The first trailer for director Fredrik Bond’s film Charlie Country has been released online. Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood stars as a couple who meet under strange circumstances and have an impossibly strong mutual attraction, much to the chagrin of Wood’s dangerous husband (Mads Mikkelsen). The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to fairly negative reviews, with many likening the pic to a feature-length music video. Bond has made some edits to the pic since Sundance, so it’ll be interesting to see how the finished film stacks up. This trailer highlights the meet-cute of the central couple, Wood’s odd Romanian accent, and Rupert Grint taking lots of drugs.

The film also stars Til Schweiger, James Buckley, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Melissa Leo. Charlie Countryman will be simultaneously released VOD and in theaters on November 15th.

Here’s the synopsis for Charlie Countryman:
When his late mother appears in a vision and tells him to go to Bucharest, Charlie immediately boards a plane across the Atlantic. But when he meets a fellow passenger, Charlie finds himself with another promise to fulfill. Charlie does so – and falls head over heels in love with Gabi, a beautiful musician.
However, a vicious gangster has already laid claim to Gabi, and has no intention of letting her go. Determined to protect her, Charlie enters into the hallucinatory, Romanian underworld filled with violence and, strangely enough, love.
