While Edgar Wright puts the pedal to the metal this week to great results with Baby Driver, another top director will be doing the same come August. Steven Soderbergh is back, and he’s bringing Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterson, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, and Hilary Swank along with him for Logan Lucky.
Ahead of a U.K. release later in August, a new trailer has now dropped for the Rebecca Blunt-scripted heist comedy that follows a pair of brothers, Jimmy (Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Driver), who attempt to reverse a family curse by executing an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Ahead of the trailer, see the director’s own description of the movie:
On the most obvious level, it’s the complete inversion of an Ocean’s movie. It’s an anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie. Nobody dresses nice. Nobody has nice stuff. They have no money. They have no technology. It’s all rubber band technology, and that’s what I thought was fun about it. It seemed familiar to me, but different enough. The landscape, the characters, and the canvass were the complete opposite of an Ocean’s film. What was weird is that I was working as a producer on Ocean’s Eight while we were shooting Logan, and it was kind of head-spinning. That’s like a proper Ocean’s film. This is a version of an Ocean’s movie that’s up on cement blocks in your front yard.
