Magnolia Pictures has released the official trailer for Christopher Smith’s upcoming neo-noir Detour, featuring stars Tye Sheridan, Bel Powley and Emory Cohen.
Sheridan plays a young law student who finds himself involved with a grifter (Cohen) and his companion (Powley), with their meeting leading to murder. Also featuring Stephen Moyer, John Lynch, Jared Abrahamson and Gbenga Akinnagbe, the film folds two crime stories in one. Detour, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, opens in theaters and hits VOD on January 20, 2017.

Looks like a splash of Brian De Palma, though described as “a Quentin Tarantino knockoff directing a Sliding Doors remake” (The Playlist).
Harper (Tye Sheridan), a seemingly naive law student, obsesses over the idea that his shifty stepfather was involved in the devastating car crash that left his mother hospitalized and comatose. He drowns his suspicions in whiskey until he finds himself suddenly engrossed in conversation with volatile grifter Johnny (Emory Cohen) and his stripper companion, Cherry (Bel Powley). As daylight breaks and the haziness of promises made becomes clearer, how will Harper handle the repercussions (not to mention the violent duo—on his doorstep)? Employing a split-narrative structure to tell this tale of deception and murder, Christopher Smith takes his audience on a thrill ride full of hairpin turns, where it’s never quite clear what or who can be trusted.
