First Trailer for DOM HEMINGWAY


Having just premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and receiving a wave of positive reviews it is nice to see some of what all the fuss concerning Dom Hemingway is about. Though this opens in the UK this November we here in the States will have to wait until next spring to see the final result, but if the festival reviews and debut poster weren't enough to get you interested, this debut trailer certainly should. Jude Law plays the titular hero of the story as a guy who has just been released from prison and is determined to recover the hush money that was stolen from him. While the trailer does a fine job of conveying this simple premise what it really sells is Law's performance. They guy is hell on wheels with a drink always in his hand and with mutton chops worthy of hard bragging. It's been a while since Law has taken on a project that he could really sink his teeth into (though he was easily the best part of last years Anna Karenina), but this looks to turn things around for him both commercially (maybe) and artistically. The guy is a talented and charismatic actor and I wouldn't be surprised if this spurred the kind of change The Lincoln Lawyer did for Matthew McConaughey's career renaissance. Here's hoping that it does and that someone decides to move the release date of this up stateside, otherwise I'll just have to watch this trailer over and over again, which isn't all bad as it has plenty of laughs to hold one over. Dom Hemingway also stars Richard E. Grant, Emilia Clarke, Jumayn Hunter, Madalina Diana Ghena, Demian Bichir and opens in the U.S. on April 4, 2014.
