Shia LaBeouf Gets Pulverized In Red Band Trailer For ‘Charlie Countryman’

Written by on November 1, 2013 

This morning we saw a naked Shia LaBeouf getting pleasured in Lars von Trier‘s Nymphomaniac, and in another bid to shake any sort of Hollywood blockbuster image, the actor’s next project features him getting beaten to a bloody pulp. This year’s Sundance Film Festival brought the premiere of commercials director Fredrik Bond‘s drama The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. Arriving in theaters on VOD this month with a shortened titled and some edits, a new red band trailer has now arrived.

Follow LaBeouf, who decides to go to Bucharest to “find himself” following the death of his mother, he gets romantically entangled with a mysterious woman named Gabi (Rachel Wood) who is still married to an abusive gangster named Nigel (Mads Mikkelsen). As we said in our full review, this is a “visually and audibly distracted aggravation of a movie, constantly searching for a reason to keep going and constantly failing to make a valid case for itself.” Check out the red band trailer, which is light on nudity, but heavy on cursing and violence, below for the film also starring Melissa Leo and Rupert Grint.


When his late mother appears in a vision and tells him to go to Bucharest, Charlie immediately boards a plane across the Atlantic. But when he meets a fellow passenger, Charlie finds himself with another promise to fulfill. Charlie does so – and falls head over heels in love with Gabi, a beautiful musician.

However, a vicious gangster has already laid claim to Gabi, and has no intention of letting her go. Determined to protect her, Charlie enters into the hallucinatory, Romanian underworld filled with violence and, strangely enough, love.

Charlie Countryman hits theaters and VOD on November 15th, 2013.
