Jude Law Makes Up for Lost Time, Way Too Fast in the ‘Dom Hemingway’ Trailer

Dom Hemingway

After 12 years in prison for keeping his mouth shut to protect his mobster boss, Dom Hemingway (Jude Law) is back on the streets and looking for one or two ways to celebrate. Can you really blame him? Richard Shepard‘s Dom Hemingway follows the titular ex-con, a safecracker, as he travels to his boss’ (Demian Bichir) palacial estate to get what he’s owed for his loyalty.

As you can see, it’s a fantastic prize, but it looks like Hemingway should have learned by now that things don’t generally work out in his favor. With no money, no girl, and no place to go, he decides the time is just super for reconnecting with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke) and getting 12 years of anger and the insatiable need to party out of his system in a matter of days. The trailer is a fantastic montage of Law in a drunken haze, doing things like humping a safe open, swimming fully clothed with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and traipsing through a field stark naked (prominently featured: Jude Law’s extremely white butt).

But while the trailer shows all of his fun, post-prison hijinks, it feels like the film is going to take a more serious turn just as this little glimpse ends. Eventually, he’s going to have to put the liquor bottle down and deal with the fact that he’s been gone for the last 12 years – especially with his daughter and grandchild. Maybe Bichir will have to answer for it?

In childhood, Samantha had a Mary Katherine Gallagher-esque flair for the dramatic, as well as the same penchant for Lifetime original movies. And while she can still quote the entire monologue from A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story, her tastes in film have luckily changed. During an interview, director Tommy Wiseau once called her a “good reporter, but not that intimidating if we’re being honest.” She once lived in Chinatown and told her neighbor Jake to “forget it” so many times that he threatened to stop talking to her.
