What a fun day! Warner Bros. dropped the first trailer for one of my most anticipated films, John Lee Hancock’s “The Little Things”. I loved Hancock’s last two movies 2016’s “The Founder” and 2019’s “The Highwaymen”. But the big draw here is the cast led by three Oscar winners, Rami Malek, Jared Leto, and one of my all-time favorites Denzel Washington. Personally I’ll see anything Denzel does, but all of these extra ingredients only adds to the excitement.
“The Little Things” looks to be a gritty crime thriller that sees Washington playing a Kern County Deputy Sheriff who joins up with a Los Angeles police detective (Malek) in hunting down a brutal serial killer. Their methods clash a bit and tensions rise especially when the slippery prime suspect (played by Leto) begins playing his games. The screenplay is written by Hancock and the glimpses we get of John Schwartzman’s cinematography hint at a dark, moody tone. I can’t wait!
“The Little Things” opens January 29th, 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
