The official trailer for Racer and the Jailbird has dropped. Check it out below, and be warned for coolness awaits.
This looks pretty great. Matthias Schoenaerts seems to be a rising star (or at least, I didn’t expect to see his face against so soon after watching Red Sparrow). I also liked the way the trailer used subtitles and if that same style is used in the final film (doubt it), I will be pleasantly surprised.
Synopsis: As a member of a notorious Brussels gang renowned for their expertly-executed robberies, Gigi (frequent Roskam collaborator Matthias Schoenaerts, The Danish Girl, Red Sparrow) tends to his front, a luxury automobile import-export business, in his downtime. Sparks fly when he meets glamorous and affluent race car driver Bibi (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Color), and despite their wildly different backgrounds, the pair fall instantly and tragically in love. While Gigi attempts to break away from his illicit history, two things stand in the couple’s way to a happy life together: an unrelenting mob hungry for another heist, and the cops that are closing in on them.
Racer and the Jailbird hits theaters May 4, 2018. What did you think of the trailer?
