Entertainment One has released the first Son of a Gun clip. The Australian thriller follows a young man (Brenton Thwaites) who becomes the apprentice of a calculating crime boss (Ewan McGregor). The clip shows what looks like the meet-cute between the two in prison, where the apprentice walks by and shows the boss where he went wrong in his chess game. McGregor is more intimidating than I expected.
Alicia Vikander, Jacek Koman, Matt Nable, and Tom Budge also star in the feature directorial debut of Julius Avery. There is no U.S. release date yet, but Son of a Gun opens October 14 in Australia. Watch the Son of a Gun clip after the break.
