‘American Honey’ Trailer Proves Shia LaBeouf is Still an Acting Presence

Shia LaBeouf is more famous these days for his strange performance art pieces. Whether it’s watching all his movies in reverse chronological order, riding an elevator for a weekend, or traveling across the country through the charity of random people, LaBeouf’s acting career has stalled.

The new trailer for American Honey not only proves Shia LaBeouf is still acting. It proves he is still can be a captivating screen presence. Here’s the trailer:

What begins as a story about those shady magazine subscription vagabonds we’ve all seen, turns into something deeper and much more threatening. The film turned some heads at this year’s Cannes in May. Here is the synopsis:

A teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits.

Aside from Shia LaBeouf, American Honey stars newcomer Sasha Lane and a whole slew of rookie actors and actresses. Red Road and Fish Tank filmmaker Andrea Arnold directed. There isn’t a set stateside release date yet, but expect it this fall.
