A24 has released the Son of a Gun trailer and poster. The Australian thriller follows JR (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who becomes the apprentice of a calculating crime boss (Ewan McGregor) when they bond on a prison break, but their relationship becomes jeopardized over a heist and a woman (Alicia Vikander). I was somewhat interested in the film, but this trailer saved me the time because it doesn’t play like a trailer as much as a condensed version of the entire movie. It’s almost impressive to see all three acts play out in the span of less than two minutes.
Hit the jump to check out the Son of a Gun trailer and poster. The film hits DirecTV on December 11th and will be in theaters in mid-January 2015.
