Trailer for Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini's THE DROP

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released an international trailer for Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini's crime thriller The Drop. The movie is based on a short story called Animal Rescue written by Dennis Lehane, who wrote the novels Mystic River, Shutter Island and Gone Baby Gone. This guy is a great storyteller of dark tales, and this looks like it's going to be a heavy movie.

The story "follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters - "money drops" - in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood's past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living - no matter the cost.

The Drop also stars Noomi Rapace, and was directed by Michael R. Roskam. It's set to be released on September 12th.
