A24 is still riding high after their big Best Picture win for Moonlight, and the distribution company shows no signs of slowing down. They just released The Lovers, and on the horizon in 2017 they have It Comes At Night, A Ghost Story, Killing of a Sacred Deer, and the subject of a brand new trailer, Good Time.
The latest from Heaven Knows What directors Josh and Benny Safdie, Good Time is a caper film featuring Robert Pattinson, Jennifer Jason-Leigh and Barkhad Abdi. Pattinson plays Constantine “Connie” Nikas, who sets off on a dangerous journey to get his brother out of jail after a botched bank robbery, while also attempting to evade a police dragnet. Featuring original music from OneOhTrix Point Never and Iggy Pop, the trailer shows off Safdies’ intense, on-the-ground style, hinting at quite a performance from Pattinson.
Watch the trailer below and return for our review soon.
Following the mind-bending HEAVEN KNOWS WHAT, celebrated filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie return to the mean streets of New York City with GOOD TIME, a hypnotic crime thriller that explores with bracing immediacy the tragic sway of family and fate.
After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine “Connie” Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld in an increasingly desperate — and dangerous — attempt to get his brother Nick (Benny Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Connie finds himself racing against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing both their lives hang in the balance.
Anchored by a career-defining performance from Robert Pattinson, GOOD TIME is a psychotic symphony of propulsive intensity crafted by two of the most exciting young directors working today. Josh and Benny Safdie’s transcendent vision is an intoxicating portrait of desperation and destruction that will not be soon forgotten.
Good Time will premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival on May 25 before opening August 11.
