Jeff Nichol's 'MUD' trailer should grab your attention

And why should it grab your attention? You may ask. Well, MUD is the follow-up feature film from Jeff Nichols, who wrote and directed the excellent Take Shelter, and that's more than enough reason to get me excited. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and the returning Michael Shannon. Check out the new trailer, and full synopsis, after the break. Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions will be releasing MUD on April 26th.

Mud is an adventure about two boys, Ellis and his friend Neckbone, who find a man named Mud hiding out on an island in the Mississippi.  Mud describes fantastic scenarios-he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper, who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him.  It isn't long until Mud's visions come true and their small town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of bounty hunters in tow.
