Kick Off Your Weekend With Daniel Craig in This ‘Logan Lucky’ Clip

Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky is, in the simplest terms possible, a redneck Ocean’s movie. The two trailers have been amazing, and the cast looks incredible, but none more so than Daniel Craig.

Now, we have the first clip from the movie, which could really just serve as an extended character trailer for Craig’s Joe Bang. In this clip, Joe weighs the pros and cons of taking on this NASCAR heist with Channing Tatum and Adam Driver.

Check it out:

I would like to go ahead and put in the call now: Daniel Craig will get a Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for this. It’s the sort of out-of-left-field role for the typically super serious Craig that will undoubtedly steal the movie and take center stage for the awards season push. Plus, Phil Noble Jr. over at Birth.Movies.Death. floated the idea that we haven’t heard any new James Bond news for this very reason. Let Daniel Craig have this moment before putting him back in the tux.

Aside from Craig, Tatum, and Driver, Logan Lucky also stars Katherine Waterston, Sebastian Stan, Riley Keough, Seth MacFarlane (?), Katie Holmes (!), and Hilary Swank (!!). It will be here in just over a month, August 18th, and I for one cannot wait for this.
