Matthew McConaughey defends a possibly evil Ryan Phillippe in the trailer for The Lincoln Lawyer

Contrary to what the title may have you thinking, THE LINCOLN LAWYER does not have Matthew McConaughey going back to the 1800s to serve the bearded slave-freeing president. Nor is he based near the memorial in Washington DC. Or even in the capitol of Nebraska. It's all about the car.

The synopsis: Mickey Haller is a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln sedan. Haller has spent most of his career defending garden-variety criminals, until he lands the case of his career: defending Louis Roulet, a Beverly Hills playboy accused of rape and attempted murder. But the seemingly straightforward case suddenly develops into a deadly game of survival for Haller.

The movie is based on the bestselling book by Michael Connelly, and has a pretty interesting cast that also includes William H. Macy, Marisa Tomei, Bryan Cranston, Josh Lucas, Michael Pena and John Leguizamo.
