A24 has released the trailer for Josh and Benny Safdie‘s upcoming Good Time, starring Robert Pattinson as a crook racing against the clock to get his brother out of jail after a botched robbery attempt. Considering the Safdie’s last film, Heaven Knows What, was one of my favorite films of 2015, I’m very eagerly anticipating this one, and even more so after checking out this trailer.
Good Time also stars Benny Safdie, Barkhad Abdi, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, and will be opening in theaters August 11th.
After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld in an increasingly desperate—and dangerous—attempt to get his brother out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Constantine finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing their lives hang in the balance.
Anchored by a career-defining performance from Robert Pattinson, GOOD TIME is a psychotic symphony of propulsive intensity crafted by two of the most exciting young directors working today. Josh and Benny Safdie’s transcendent vision is an intoxicating portrait of desperation and destruction that will not be soon forgotten.
