Director Steven Soderbergh’s self-proclaimed hiatus from directing movies lasted all of four years, and that’s a good thing since Logan Lucky has the makings of a comedic gem. Soderbergh, whose body of work covers a ton of genre, had his biggest commercial hits with his Ocean’s Eleven films, and now he’s pulling off another cinematic heist with Logan Lucky.
Reteaming with Magic Mike collaborator Channing Tatum, Soderbergh’s first film since 2013’s Side Effects centers on brothers (Tatum, Adam Driver) who attempt to rob the Coca-Cola 600 race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Daniel Craig, who should be the film’s funnest character, plays the recently freed prisoner who helps in the brothers’ criminal escapade.
As with his Ocean’s Eleven movies, Logan Lucky features an all-star cast which includes Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston, Riley Keough (she worked on the Soderbergh produced series The Girlfriend Experience), and Sebastian Stan. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
Logan Lucky opens nationwide August 18th.
