‘Whole Lotta Sole’ Trailer – ‘Hotel Rwanda’ Director Returns With Brendan Fraser Crime Caper

Written by on May 22, 2012 

After winning an Oscar for his short The Shore this year, Hotel Rwanda director Terry George is also finally returning to feature film territory after 2007’s Reservation Road. Premiering at Tribeca last month, Whole Lotta Sole sees the helmer switching to a more fun tone, with the story revolving around Brendan Fraser and a robbery in a Irish town. We were mixed on the film (full review here), complaining about his over-abundant subplots, but enjoying the overall light nature. The first trailer has arrived today and you can check it out below for the film also starring Colm Meaney, David O’Hara, Yaya DaCosta and Martin McCann.


In a rowdy little corner of Belfast, hapless young father Jimbo Reagan is having an unlucky week. Indebted to big-time gangster Mad Dog Flynn for $5,000, Jimbo decides to knock over the local fish market, only to find out post-robbery that it’s a front for Mad Dog’s illegal operations! On the lam with nowhere to turn, Jimbo holes up in a local antique shop and things go from bad to worse when he unwittingly takes five hostages. Shop manager Joe Maguire (Brendan Fraser) is one of these wrong-place-wrong-time hostages, but the situation proves to be serendipitous as Jimbo and Joe unearth encouraging discoveries about their intersecting pasts.

Whole Lotta Sole has US distribution, but no release date yet.
