Lionsgate has released the domestic trailer for Drift, the Australian surf drama directed by Ben Nott and Morgan O’Neill. Set in 1970s Austrailia, Drift centers on two brothers (Xavier Samuel and Myles Pollard) who launch a surf gear business, selling merchandise out of the back of their van. Sam Worthington co-stars as a surf photographer and filmmaker. The trailer suggests the film quickly transitions from the easygoing surfer vibe to an intense thriller. If that fails, it looks like Nott and O’Neill captured some solid surfing footage.
Robyn Malcolm, Lesley- Ann Brandt, Aaron Glenane, Steve Bastoni, and Maurie Ogden co-star. Drift opens August 2. Watch the trailer after the break.
