Another violent trailer for John Hillcoat's "Lawless (2012)" has landed online. Making its way out via Yahoo! Movies, the new trailer unveils more gunfight scenes involving Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and their on-screen nemesis Guy Pearce. At one point, Tom and Shia are featured being soaked in blood and sporting bruised face.
In addition to the new trailer, The Weinstein Company reveals an infographic guide to the handguns used by Tom, Shia and Guy in the movie. Released via MTV, the image describes Tom's gun as "Belly Gun", Shia's as "Webley Break Top Revolver", and Guy's as "Smith & Wesson Military & Police".
Adapted from a historical novel of the same name by Matt Bondurant, "Lawless" revolves around three Bondurant brothers who run a small-scale moonshining family business. They later find their bootlegging business under threat in Prohibition-era Franklin County, Virginia. The story is based on a true story of Matt's grandfather and great uncles.
Shia and Tom star as Jack and Forrest Bondurant respectively, while Jason Clarke portrays their other brother Howard. Guy, meanwhile, plays Deputy Charley Rakes. Also supporting the drama are Jessica Chastain as Forrest's love interest, Mia Wasikowska as Jack's lady, and Gary Oldman as gangster Floyd Banner.
Shia once shared his experience in filming intense fight scene with Guy. "There wasn't a lot of fight training, the fight scene I did with Guy Pearce was really organic and it happened really fast," so he told Flicks and Bits. "That's the way [director] John Hillcoat does his violence. It's messy, it's dirty, it's realistic. So it's not rehearsed like a ballet, it's rough around the edges."
"Lawless" is due in the United States on August 29.
