The first trailer for the drama Mud has arrived. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, and Michael Shannon and is directed by Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter). The story centers on two young boys who encounter a fugitive and help him evade bounty hunters and reunite with his true love. Mud is slated to release on April 26.
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.
