Cut Bank trailer

In the thriller Cut Bank, Liam Hemsworth plays a guy living in the so-called coldest spot in the United States. Naturally, he wants out. When he captures video of a murder, he gets the idea to use that video as his ticket out of town. And naturally, that doesn’t go so well. If that all sounds like it has the potential for a real Coen Brothers sort of vibe, the trailer will sell that idea even further. This Cut Bank trailer is great — it’s cut with a catchy, rhythmic and percussive attitude.

We don’t know if the film is also good, but the cast is hard to argue with (Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Dern, Michael Stuhlbarg, seen above, and Oliver Platt) and having A24 as the film’s distributor suggests good things. This could all be taking place just down the road from Fargo; have a look.

Cut Bank plays on DirecTV starting on February 26, then will be in theaters on April 3. Trailer via A24.

Dwayne McLaren (Liam Hemsworth) dreams about escaping small town life in Cut Bank, Montana, “the coldest spot in the nation,” with his vivacious girlfriend Cassandra (Teresa Palmer). When Dwayne witnesses an awful crime, he tries to leverage a bad situation into a scheme to get rich quickly but he finds that fate and an unruly accomplice are working against him. Thrust into the middle of a police investigation spearheaded by the local sheriff (John Malkovich), everything goes from bad to worse in this all-American thriller. Directed by Matt Shakman and also starring Billy Bob Thorton, Bruce Dern, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Oliver Platt.
