COP CAR Trailer: Kevin Bacon Loses His Cruiser

Freedson-Jackson Wellford

A first trailer has arrived for the indie thriller Cop Car, a Sundance 2015 Park City at Midnight hit, starring Kevin Bacon.

Looks good, Bacon plays the cop with a grim squint and magnificent mustache, and the two boys at the center, James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford, they look terrific.

The trailer shows quite a bit of footage, so if you want to watch the movie without knowing anything beforehand, then pass on it.

Directed by Jon Watts (Jewish Santa Is Coming), from a screenplay co-written by Watts and Christopher D. Ford, Cop Car also stars Shea Whigham, Kathleen Bentley and Camryn Manheim. The film opens on August 7 and hits VOD and Digital HD on August 14.

Watch below if you want to proceed anyway.
