Fox Searchlight has released a new The Drop trailer along with a new poster and images. 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. Unlike the U.S. trailer, this international trailer features the excellent Matthias Schoenaerts, who is reteaming with his Bullhead director Michaël R. Roskam for the film. It looks like a solid crime drama, and if anything, it will be worth watching for Gandolfini’s final big screen performance.
Hit the jump to check out The Drop trailer, poster, and images. The film opens September 12th, and also stars Noomi Rapace, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd, and James Frecheville.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Drop:
THE DROP is a new crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award-nominated director of BULLHEAD. Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (MYSTIC RIVER, GONE BABY GONE), THE DROP follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.
