trailer charlie countryman

Visited by his late mother one strange night in a dream, Charlie (Shia LaBeouf) is prompted to board a plane and journey to Bucharest with no real plans in mind. What starts out as a drug-fueled party trip filled with dancing, pills and Rupert Grint, turns into something more severe when he meets up with a mysterious girl named Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood). Gangsters and gun violence follow. Isn’t that how these things always work out?

Fredrik Bond‘s Charlie Countryman (formerly The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman) seems like, at least from the trailer, a story about a man who plays it safe, who now gets to live when thrust into his new surroundings. Though we’re not shown what his life is like before Bucharest, it’s clear that the version of Charlie that gets hunted down by Mads Mikkelsen and parties hard isn’t the norm. But unlike in yesterday’s trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Charlie doesn’t have the years of disappointing life experiences under his belt to be in such a place of overwhelming complacency.

Check out the trailer here:

Our own Allison Loring reviewed the film at Sundance this year, and said that “there is an interesting story here, but Bond unfortunately seems more focused on making the film look cool than developing the performances within it.” You can read her full review here.

Charlie Countryman is in theaters November 15th.
