Director John Hillcoat’s Prohibition era drama, Lawless, is set to release later this month, but we’ve got a few new social games to help pass the time until then. Set during the Depression, Lawless follows the bootlegging Bondurant family as they clash with the local law enforcement who wants a cut of their profits. The games let you get in a bare-knuckle fight, shoot your way out of a bad spot, select a period-appropriate nickname and play some good old fashioned drinking games. The new infographic also spotlights the “bad girls” of the era.
Lawless, starring Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska, opens August 29th. Hit the jump to see the new infographic and play some games.
LAWLESS is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel “The Wettest County in the World”, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave.
If you’d like to test your bare-knuckle fighting skills or if you’ve got an itchy trigger finger, head over here to play “Brass Knuckle Beatdown” and/or “Locked and Loaded.” If drinking games are more your speed, check out the “Moonshine Challenge” over at Facebook. What good is all your success at social games if you don’t have a sweet nickname to go with it? Go find out what yours is with the “American Slangster Nickname Generator.” Even if social gaming isn’t your speed, the links do offer up some rather violent and tense clips from the film, so they’re worth checking out. Speaking of clips, we have a few of our own to share with you. Here are a few more images from the gaming sites if you need more convincing:
