First Trailer for ‘The Bikeriders’ Releases After Telluride Premiere

The first trailer for The Bikeriders has been released. Written and directed by Jeff Nichols, the movie stars Austin Butler, Jodie Comer, Tom Hardy, Michael Shannon, Mike Faist, Norman Reedus, Boyd Holbrook, Damon Herriman, and Beau Knapp. The film is an adaptation of the book of the same name by Danny Lyon.

Our editor-in-chief, Joey Magidson, recently saw the movie during its Telluride premiere and praised Jodie Comer’s performance, qualifying her as the film’s biggest standout. You can read his full review of the movie here.

Here is the plot synopsis for The Bikeriders:

“From writer-director Jeff Nichols (“Loving,” “Midnight Special,” “Mud”), 20th Century Studios and New Regency, “The Bikeriders” is a furious drama following the rise of a fictional 1960s Midwestern motorcycle club through the lives of its members. Inspired by Danny Lyon’s iconic book of photography, “The Bikeriders” immerses you in the look, feel, and sounds of the bare-knuckled, grease-covered subculture of ’60s motorcycle riders. Kathy (Comer), a strong-willed member of the Vandals who’s married to a wild, reckless bikerider named Benny (Butler), recounts the Vandals’ evolution over the course of a decade, beginning as a local club of outsiders united by good times, rumbling bikes, and respect for their strong, steady leader Johnny (Hardy). Over the years, Kathy tries her best to navigate her husband’s untamed nature and his allegiance to Johnny, with whom she feels she must compete for Benny’s attention. As life in the Vandals gets more dangerous, and the club threatens to become a more sinister gang, Kathy, Benny and Johnny are forced to make choices about their loyalty to the club and to each other.”

Additionally, a poster was also released which you can look at below:
