Film Trailers: GOD'S POCKET
Here is the trailer for God's Pocket, one of the other, along with Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, of Philip Seymour Hoffman's final on screen performances. The film is directed by "Mad Men" star John Slattery, who also has directed episodes of that show. The film did not get received all that well at this year's Sundance Film Festival, but I am impressed with the trailer. Mickey (Hoffman) gets in over his head when he attempts to cover up the death of his stepson. Without a doubt I want to see this film, regardless of the reviews. The early 80's setting and what appears to be a somewhat mix of a thriller and dark comedy. Plus seeing Hoffman. The cast also includes Christina Hendricks, John Turturro, Caleb Landry Jones and Richard Jenkins. The film will be released on May 9th. Still sad to think that Hoffman is gone. Cannot believe it. Enjoy the trailer.
