These new Lawless posters remind us that Shia LaBeouf gets top billing, not Tom Hardy

Aug. 1, 2012by:

When I think of the upcoming John Hillcoat movie LAWLESS, I immediately think of Tom Hardy. The guy steals the show from every other actor in every movie he has been in. Just look at that STAR TREK: NEMESIS screen test. He blew Patrick Stewart away!

This final poster for LAWLESS shows us that while Tom Hardy is front and center, he is second billed after Shia LaBeouf. Obviously Shia is a bigger draw than Hardy, but I don't think that will last very much longer.

Plot: LAWLESS is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel “The Wettest County In The World”, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave.

I don't like that poster nearly as much as the ones that were released before, but the movie looks good nonetheless.

Movietickets.com has also scored some new art for the movie. This is a handy dandy chart comparing the two main Bondurant brothers to some more famous criminals of their era. I still would put my money on Tom Hardy's Forrest Bondurant.

LAWLESS opens in theaters on August 29th.

Extra Tidbit: Tom Hardy recently answered a professional boxer's challenge and said he would fight him in the ring as long as all proceeds go to charity. What a badass dude.

Are people still that butthurt over Indy 4 and Transformers?

Shia's a perfectly fine actor. All of the hate is really getting old.

can't wait

Shia's awesome, and the rest of the cast is fantastic (Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy) so excited for this one! I can tell Shia's gonna bring it just as much if not moreso dramatically than he did in A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints which he was fantastic in (and is a must see movie all around!)

I want to see this movie so bad, but I can not stand Shia.

Sorry, but Shia doesn't belong in the 2nd poster Gangsters of Prohibition. He just looks out of place.
