Well guys. You ready? Below we have finally scored the first official trailer for Atom Egoyan’s true crime flick, Devil’s Knot, and it actually looks impressive. However, we know brutality, right? i mean, we are horror fans, we witness terror almost everyday of our lives, but when you watch a film knowing that the events shown on screen actually happened, or at least roughly happened, it makes it all that more real.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings. If you’ve been following this one, I recommend you check out the trailer below and let us know what you make of it?
The film stars Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Alessandro Nivola, Amy Ryan, Matt Letscher, Michael Gladis, Stephen Moyer, Rex Linn, and Bruce Greenwood.
Synopsis: Based on journalist Mara Leveritt’s bestselling book of the same name, “Devil’s Knot” follows private detective Ron Lax (Firth), who took on the West Memphis Three case pro bono. He found DNA evidence linking Terry Hobbs (Alessandro Nivola), the stepfather of one of the three murdered boys, to material that was used to bind one of the victims — evidence that helped convince a judge to release Baldwin, Misskelley Jr. and Echols.
The film is expected to hit in the second quarter of next year.
