Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for the crime drama The Drop. Tom Hardy plays Bob, a former criminal and current bartender working at a bar that serves as a money “drop” for local gangsters. When the bar gets robbed, Bob and his cousin/employer Marv (James Gandolfini) find themselves in the crosshairs of an investigation and the criminal underworld. Directed by Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead) working from a script by Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone), who adapted his own short story, I have high hopes for this one, not only because of the talent on board, but because it’s Gandolfini’s final film, and I want his filmography to go out on a high note.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd, and James Frecheville. The Drop opens September 19th.
