Channing Tatum Tries To Pull Off A Heist In First Trailer For 'Logan Lucky'

Logan Lucky

Steven Soderbergh announced his intention to retire from filmmaking in 2012. Side Effects was to be his final big-screen movie and HBO's Behind the Candelabra would be his final directing effort. Soon thereafter, however, he decided to help produce the period medical show The Knick for Cinemax and ended up directing all 20 episodes over the next couple of years. That experience rekindled his love of filmmaking, whether it be on the big or small screen. 

Early in 2016, Soderbergh was lured back into big-screen filmmaking by a project titled Lucky Logan, with frequent collaborator Channing Tatum (Haywire, Magic Mike, Side Effects) attached to star. Later that year, we learned it would be a heist movie with a very intriguing cast. 

Lucky Logan follows two brothers (Tatum and Adam Driver) who decide to carry out an elaborate robbery during a stock car race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. To do that, they first need to break out an expert thief from prison.

Watch the first trailer below.

Written by Rebecca Blunt, Lucky Logan looks and sounds refreshingly different from anything Soderbergh has done before. Sure, there's a heist involved and a crazy set of characters, like Ocean's 11 and its sequels, but as the director told Entertainment Weekly last month: "It’s the complete inversion of an Ocean's movie. It’s an anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie. … The landscape, the characters and the canvass were the complete opposite of an Ocean's film."

Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, Hilary Swank and Daniel Craig also star. The movie will open in theaters on August 18.
