Stillwater Trailer Starring Matt Damon

stillwater

It may not seems like your usual summer blockbuster but Focus Features has just released the first trailer for their upcoming movie Stillwater which is coming to theatres this July. Directed by Tom McCarthy (Spotlight, The Visitor) and starring Matt Damon, the movie feels like it could be an awards season drama (it was originally scheduled for release last November) although on the other hand it also feels like the kind of thriller that Liam Neeson usually stars in. The story revolves around an Oklahoma man (Damon) who travels to Marseilles to try and get his daughter (Abigail Breslin) out of prison after she is accused of a murder she did not commit. He ends up taking on the investigation himself and finds himself in over his head as he tangles with local criminals. Stillwater hits theatres on July 30th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
