The Son of No One will close the Sundance Film Festival next week; we had the poster a couple days ago, and now here’s the first very serious trailer. Channing Tatum stars as a cop whose relatively calm life with his wife (Katie Holmes) is threatened by the spectre of an unsolved murder from years in the past. Al Pacino, Ray Liotta, Juliette Binoche and Tracy Morgan are all on board, too, with Dito Montiel directing. See the trailer after the break. Read More »
