(PCM) Yahoo! Movies debuted the first trailer for Focus World’s Cop Car, a crime thriller from director Jon Watts starring Kevin Bacon as a corrupt sheriff on the hunt for the two ten-year-olds who commandeered his vehicle.
After two good-natured but rebellious young boys (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) stumble across an abandoned cop car hidden in a secluded glade, they do what any kid faced with that kind of an opportunity would do and decide to take it for a quick joyride around town, engaging in the kinds of shenanigans two young boys in the possession of a cop car, sirens, and guns would, with little regard for the consequences.
Their bad decision unleashes the ire of the county sheriff (Kevin Bacon) and leads to brutal consequences.
Currently rated fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a rating of 73%, Cop Car stars Shea Whigham (Silver Linings Playbook), Camryn Manheim (Scary Movie 3), Kevin Bacon (The Following), James Freedson-Jackson, and Hays Wellford (Strive) and is written and directed by Jon Watts (Clown) along with co-writer Christopher D. Ward (Robot & Frank, Clown).
Peter Debruge called Cop Car “B-movie gold” in his Variety review, writing: “Shot in crisp, atmospheric widescreen, “Cop Car” is just the sort of stripped-down exercise…that presents vaguely sadistic, dark-humored helmers with an opportunity to showcase their technique. For a second-time director, Watts demonstrates masterful control, pushing right up against the limits of what we can take (even non-parents will be rattled watching the boys mishandling loaded weapons), and yet, at every turn, the screenplay falls short of the picture’s full potential, missing opportunities that could have made this a classic.”
