We’ve been sent this first official trailer of Galveston, the upcoming crime drama thriller movie directed by Mélanie Laurent and starring Ben Foster, Elle Fanning, Beau Bridges, Adepero Aduye, Lili Reinhart, Maria Valverde, Robert Aramayo, and C.K. McFarland:
“Adapted by Nic Pizzolatto (creator of HBO’s True Detective) from his best-selling novel, Galveston is a gripping human thriller fueled by hair-trigger tension.
Debt Collector and sometime-killer Roy (Ben Foster) senses that his boss, a dangerous, violent and pitiless loan-shark, wants him dead, and his next routine assignment is indeed a death-trap. Yet what the would-be killers do to Roy is not the same as what he does to them…after a smoking spasm of violence, they are mostly dead and he is just about alive. Before making his getaway, Roy discovers young prostitute Rocky (Elle Fanning) hiding in the back room, and he sees something in her frightened, defiant eyes that prompts a fateful decision. He takes her with him as he flees New Orleans to Galveston—an action as ill-advised as it is inescapable. Rocky is too young, too tough, too sexy – and far too much trouble, especially when she makes a detour to liberate her 3 year old sister from the clutches of their seedy step-father. Like the smoke dancing upwards from a barrel of a gun, there’s no way things are going to end well.
This fragile trio hides in the battered seascape of Galveston’s country-western bars and fleabag motels, a world of treacherous drifters, rusting pickup trucks, and worn-out dreams. Any chance of a safe haven is soon lost. Rocky is a girl with secrets to hide, one that will pursue and damage Roy for a very long time to come in this powerful and atmospheric film noir.”
I guess we should not expect a happy ending… Anyway, can’t wait to see Ben Foster and Elle Fanning in this film: they’re delivering great performances!
