Start To Respect Matthew McConaughey Again With The Second Lincoln Lawyer Trailer
Matthew McConaughey has spent much of the last decade making some really bad movies, from Surfer, Dude to Failure To Launch. The truth is, though, that the man once had some serious chops and potential, making movies like A Time To Kill and Dazed and Confused. With any luck, The Lincoln Lawyer may be able to bring him back to respectability.
Apple has posted the second trailer for the legal thriller, based on the book by Michael Connelly. In the film, McConaughey plays Mickey Haller, a defense attorney who, in lieu of having an office, works in the backseat of a Lincoln town car. One day he is given a case involving a playboy named Louis Roulet, who is being charged with rape and attempted murder. It seems like the case of a lifetime, but things get serious when Haller can't tell if he is defending a guilty man and his life is put on the line.
Check out the trailer below or in HD over at Apple. Stay tuned for my response afterward.
I'm as skeptical as one can get when looking at a possible career shift for Matthew McConaughey, but even I must admit that this movie looks decent. It could just be the fact that it's a well cut trailer or that McConaughey isn't putting on his stoned, bongo-playing persona again, but this film looks like it could bring the high tension chills that come with a solid legal thriller. The actor made a dramatic name for himself playing a lawyer in A Time To Kill. Maybe he'll reawaken his career with one too. For more about The Lincoln Lawyer, head on over to our Blend Film Database
