Turns out Steven Soderbergh is a liar, because despite claiming he had retired from directing, here's the trailer for his newest film Logan Lucky. It feels like a redneck version of Ocean's 11, which seems fitting since that's basically how Soderbergh described it to EW:
On the most obvious level, it's the complete inversion of an Ocean's movie. It's an anti-glam version of an Ocean's movie. Nobody dresses nice. Nobody has nice stuff. They have no money. They have no technology. It's all rubber band technology, and that's what I thought was fun about it. It seemed familiar to me, but different enough. The landscape, the characters, and the canvass were the complete opposite of an Ocean's film. What was weird is that I was working as a producer on Ocean's Eight while we were shooting Logan, and it was kind of head-spinning. That's like a proper Ocean's film. This is a version of an Ocean's movie that's up on cement blocks in your front yard.
Channing Tatum has this weird knack for getting cast in subversively hilarious movies, especially when paired with Steven Soderbergh. At least that's what I tell people whenever they catch me watching Magic Mike on repeat. Logan Lucky comes out August 8, and it looks pretty good, despite the apparent lack of Channing Tatum's abs.
