The trailer of filmmaker Jeff Nichols’ upcoming drama The Bikeriders, starring Austin Butler, Jodie Comer, and Tom Hardy, was released by 20th Century Studios and New Regency today.
The two-minute trailer shows Butler and Hardy as Benny and Johnny, members of a motorcycle club, with Comer playing Benny’s love interest Kathy. The film follows Kathy recounting how she married this wild biker and how the gang evolved over the years in the 1960s. Initially started as a local group that followed Johnny, the club will go on to get entangled in turf wars and indulge in criminal activities.
Based on the 1968 photo book of the same name by renowned photographer Danny Lyon, The Bikeriders also stars Michael Shannon, Mike Faist, Norman Reedus, Boyd Holbrook, Damon Herriman, Beau Knapp, Emory Cohen and Karl Glusman.
Sarah Green, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Arnon Milchan have produced the film. Yariv Milchan, Michael Schaefer, Sam Hanson, David Kern and Fred Berger have served as executive producers.
Produced by Regency Enterprises, New Regency Productions, Tri-State Pictures and 20th Century Studios, The Bikeriders is set to release in theatres in the US on December 1. The film, which premiered at the Telluride Film Festival in August, will be screened in the upcoming BFI London Film Festival.
