New Trailer And Poster For Buzzed-About Thriller Cold In July
Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson face off

One film getting a lot of buzz around its Cannes Film Festival screening is Cold In July, a crime thriller starring Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson. We managed to nab an exclusive look at the trailer and posters, so check them out below for a taste of what we're in for.

 

The story sees Hall's unassuming, mulleted family man awakened one dark night by an intruder in his house. He shoots the man dead and finds the law on his side - but he himself is plagued with remorse, and that's the least of his problems when the dead man's family show up. Set in the 1980s in East Texas, this promises to be a crime thriller at the grittier end of the spectrum. Heck, the trailer's score alone would convince us of that.

It all comes from director Jim Mickle, following on from his We Are What We Are last year, an extremely stylish chiller about another dysfunctional family.

Cold In July hits UK cinemas on June 27 - surely they should have waited a week - and will no doubt be screening at other Festivals beyond the Cannes Director Fortnight before then.
