'Bad Country' trailer premiere: Contract killers, Neo-Nazis, and Bayou noir

If you want to bring down a crime ring, you have to start thinking like a criminal. Any good movie cop knows that, and Willem Dafoe’s Bud Carter is no exception.

In Bad Country, Bud Carter teams up with Matt Dillon’s Jesse Weiland, an incarcerated man with Aryan Brotherhood affiliations, to try to uncover a larger, more sinister organization plaguing the Bayou environs. “He’s the ticket to something big,” Bud tells his fellow cops. Bud needs Jesse, and Jesse just wants to get back to his wife (played by Amy Smart) and his kid, so he becomes an informant for the people who put him behind bars in the first place. There’s a hit list, a body count, and a number of exploding cars.

The 1983-set film is the directorial debut of Boondock Saints producer Chris Brinker, who died suddenly in February at the age of 42 while the movie, previously titled Whiskey Bay, was in post-production. Tom Berenger, Neal McDonough, and Christopher Denham also star.

With its mysterious plot, shifting allegiances, moody music, and mustachioed men with agendas, Bad Country looks like a fun tribute to late 70s and early 80s-era crime thrillers. The stakes are real, and so are the awesome Southern noir hats and pinstripe suits. Take a look at EW’s exclusive premiere of the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
