‘The Hollow Point’ Trailer: Patrick Wilson, Ian McShane Patrol the Border in This Cartel Thriller

The Hollow Point is one in a series of new Texas border-town thrillers, and it looks like a damn fine entry.

The film stars Patrick Wilson as a sheriff who finds himself in over his head as he tries to keep gun runners and drug lords under control. Check out the trailer:

The synopsis is brief, and you can pretty much figure it out in the trailer: “A new sheriff of a small town along the U.S. & Mexico border investigates a drug cartel deal that went horribly wrong.”

Aside from Wilson, you see the great Ian McShane, along with Lynn Collins, Jim Belushi, and the underappreciated John Leguizamo. The Hollow Point is directed by Gonzalo López-Gallegos, whose previous credits include Open Grace and… uh… Apollo 18. So there’s that. It certainly looks intense as hell.

The Hollow Point made a run through a few festivals this summer, and has a few favorable reviews floating around here. It gets a wide release here December 16.
