You saw him in the Lincoln trailer, you swooned, you demanded more, and you've got it: another end-of-year release starring 87-year-old Hal Holbrook. The veteran actor stars alongside Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Frances McDormand, and Rosemarie DeWitt in Promised Land, a drama in which Damon plays an all-American gas company shyster looking to get another in a long line of small towns to fork over their land. Standing in his way is the all-American John Krasinski, a local leading an opposition force in pointing out that fracking is sort of a terrible idea unless you are a Captain Planet villain. Gus Van Sant directs from a script by Damon, Krasinski, and Dave Eggers. It's a Good Will Hunting reunion! It's an Away We Go reunion! It's Hal fuckin' Holbrook, baby.
