If you see a gun in the first act of a movie, it must go off in the third. I’m paraphrasing there, The Drop does in fact show you a gun in the first act – more than one, actually – and, from there, the movie moves implacably to its inevitable, yet not quite expected end.
The Drop is based on a short story by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), who also wrote the script. It’s the story of a bartender who finds himself between a rock and hard place when the bar where he works is robbed – it’s a mob-owned enterprise – and finds himself in the middle of an investigation that digs into the neighborhood’s past.
Two new clips have been released featuring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini. Check them out after the jump. The Drop premieres on September 12th.
Two guys rob a bar. Ex-con bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) has been funnelling mob money through the bar – which is owned by his cousin, Marv (James Gandolfini), also an ex-con, which is trying to go legit. Sadly, they are not the robbers. Not good.
Noomi Rapace also stars. The Drop has a September 12th release date. Check out the tense new trailer after the jump.
In his final role, James Gandolfini returned to the dark world of organized crime as the former owner of a bar that is used as a drop zone for ill-gotten money. The Drop also stars Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace.
Check out the first trailer following the jump. The Drop will be in theaters on September 14th.

Batman Begins was unprecedented. The Dark Knight was astonishing. The Dark Rises is merely… brilliant. At least, that was my first thought after seeing The Dark Knight Rises (not in IMAX, unfortunately, but that’s neither here nor there). Then I thought that maybe I felt that way because, even after seeing Batman Begins, the brilliance of The Dark Knight was completely unexpected and that, this time, I was expecting brilliance and getting it came as no surprise.
