First trailer for the Southern action flick The Baytown Disco with Billy Bob Thornton

Apr. 18, 2012by: Paul Shirey

We've seen the posters and now we have a trailer for THE BAYTOWN DISCO, starring Billy Bob Thornton, Eva Longoria, Andre Braugher, and a host of up-and-comers.  That cast may not set you on fire, but I think your mind may change after seeing the trailer.

Get it on:

I think this looks pretty damn fun.  It's like a Southern fried SMOKIN' ACES.  I can dig that.  There's something about a film where they round up a bunch of assassins of various skill sets to take out the protagonist(s).  It adds a lot more personality than your usual SWAT team hit squads, etc. 

Heres the official synopsis for THE BAYTOWN DISCO:

The rousing rebel spirit of a family of Southern thugs takes off at breakneck speed in “The Baytown Disco” — a wickedly playful, high-velocity action-comedy in which three infamously ruthless Alabama brothers find themselves on the wrong side of crooked cops, relentless Feds, mad mobsters, road pirates, tomahawk-wielding bikers, tricky femme fatales and an unforgettable cast of characters as colorful as they are lethal when they finally try to do a single good deed.

Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton and Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria headline this wildly explosive, yet ultimately moving, tale of honor breaking out among thieves with madcap results. It all starts when the fetching Celeste (Longoria) has a falling out with her nefarious ex-husband Carlos (Thornton) who kidnaps her beloved son, Rob (Thomas Brodie Sangster). Knowing her ex can be a maniacal psychopath, not to mention a bit trigger-happy, she turns for help to the most bad-ass, lawless hit-man trio in Alabama: the Oodie Brothers.


Ringleader Brick (Clayne Crawford, “24,” “The Glades”), mute wrestling phenom Lincoln (Daniel Cudmore, “The Twilight Saga”), and the baby of the brothers, the kick-ass G.I. McQueen (Travis Fimmel, “The Beast”) are known for being mean as a bag of rattlesnakes –and measly kidnap rescues are not on their menu of services. But when Brick is unexpectedly moved by Celeste’s plight, what he thinks is going to be an easy smash-and-grab job turns out to be the most hair-raising and hilariously intense adventure of his and his brothers’ harrowing careers.


Suddenly the Oodies have their hometown Sheriff (Andre Braugher, “Men of a Certain Age,” “Salt”), in a tangle; a pesky DEA Agent (Paul Wesley, “Vampire Diaries”) on their trail, and Carlos and his heinous assortment of henchman out for their hides. With no one quite who or what they seem, they are headed for a showdown — and a shot at redemption — they never saw coming.

I'll definitely be catching this when it comes down the pipe.  It's currently having buyer screenings, so expect an annoncement for distribution shortly.

Extra Tidbit: I really dug Smokin' Aces, but it simply fell apart the second they left the high rise.

Looks familiar. Isn't it the type of films that try way too hard to have style, sexyness and fun dialogue but ultimately fails cause the director is not talented enough to pull it off ? I think it is.
