However, it’s hard to resist temptation when the forbidden fruit looks so sweet. With the international launch trailer, Ridley Scott continues to tip his hand without throwing the game.

America has never met a capitalist it didn’t love, or an underdog it wasn’t willing to cheer on. Hollywood has been catering to such sentiments for ages, churning out movies that portray criminals as self-made, if extremely violent, men. Though gangster and crime films don’t put asses in seats like they used to, a decent one will almost always find an audience. The latest of these blood soaked fables, Lawless, comes courtesy of The Weinstein Company.
