The first red band trailer has been released for Charlie Countryman, a new film starring Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood and Mads Mikkelsen. This amps up the craziness of the first trailer, with swearing, violence and bizarre moments at every turn. We’re looking forward to checking this out, even though early reviews haven’t been exactly positive.
Official synopsis for Charlie Countryman:
A footloose young man must undergo a dark and brutal trial by fire to save the love of his life in this flashy, violent adventure saga from Fredrik Bond, a celebrated director of television commercials. American Charlie Countryman’s (Shia LaBeouf) heart breaks as his mother (Melissa Leo) expires in a hospital, but seconds after her death, she reappears to him in spirit form and implores him to visit Bucharest, Romania. On the plane, he strikes up a conversation with an enigmatic stranger, who dies in mid-flight; not long after, Charlie crosses paths with the man’s daughter, beautiful cellist Gabi Banyai (Evan Rachel Wood). The two quickly grow smitten with one another and begin an affair, but there are complications afoot, including Gabi’s marriage to a dissolute, psychopathic Romanian drug dealer named Nigel (Mads Mikkelsen) and one of his associates, mobster and strip-club owner Darko (Til Schweiger) — each of whom despises Charlie and wants to see him dead. A recklessness overcomes Charlie, however, and he soon reveals that he’s willing to do anything to claim Gabi, even if it means putting his very life on the line at the hands of these thugs.
Starring Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, Melissa Leo and Rupert Grint.
