The Drop Trailer Lands Online
There are some sins you commit you can't come back from...

Notable not only for featuring the final film performance by James Gandolfini, The Drop also features the first pairing of Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace and finds Dennis Lehane adapting his own short story. The first trailer has just landed online and can be watched below. 

The Drop sees Hardy play Bob Saginowski, a lonely Boston barman and ex-criminal trying to go straight. Where Bob works is no ordinary water hole, however: it’s known in the neighbourhood as a place where shady money exchanges hands and danger lurks just beyond the doors. The bar is technically owned by Bob’s cousin Marv (Gandolfini), a man with his own connections to the crime scene and his own sins to atone for.

At the same time that Bob rescues an abandoned pit bull puppy from a rubbish bin and romances Rapace’s Nadia, he finds himself caught up with the dog’s alarming former owner, the Boston mob, a heist-gone-wrong and at least one murder.

Bullhead’s Michael R. Roskam directed this one, which Lehane drew from his story Animal Rescue (hence the puppy). It’ll arrive in the US on September 19, and hits UK cinemas on November 14.
