The Lincoln Lawyer just got a little more exciting with its new high-action trailer. It has more twists, more action, more subplots, lots of good actors — looks like it’s time for another good crime-drama-thriller (it’s a new name for an old category). Though these types of films have been done to death, there’s nothing like a good thriller to revitalize the genre and keep you on the edge of your seat. The first trailer featured a serious McConaughey which seriously worried me, but this trailer boosts an impressive supporting cast with what looks like some heavy drama and high tension. Let’s do this!

I almost always like the first trailer or teaser trailers beat, but in this case, a little more info and a little more background on everyone else in the film with my favorites Marisa Tomei and Bryan Cranston thrown into the mix and now they’ve got me hooked!

Find out more about the film….


In the gripping thriller “The Lincoln Lawyer,” Matthew McConaughey stars as Michael “Mick” Haller, a slick, charismatic Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln Continental sedan. Having spent most of his career defending petty, gutter-variety criminals, Mick unexpectedly lands the case of a lifetime: defending a rich Beverly Hills playboy (Ryan Phillippe) who is accused of attempted murder. However, what initially appears to be a straightforward case with a big money pay-off swiftly develops into a deadly match between two masters of manipulation and a crisis of conscience for Haller.

Directed by Brad Furman from a screenplay by John Romano, based on the novel by Michael Connelly, the cast also includes Marisa Tomei, Josh Lucas, John Leguizamo, Frances Fisher, Bob Gunton, Laurence Mason, with Bryan Cranston and William H. Macy. Lionsgate and Lakeshore Entertainment present a Lakeshore Entertainment Lionsgate production in association with Sidney Kimmel Entertainment Stone Village Pictures.

The Lincoln Lawyer will be in theaters nationwide March 18, 2011!
