HBO’s THE SUNSET LIMITED Teaser Trailer Starring Tommy Lee Jones & Samuel L. Jackson
Here are two new teaser trailer for HBO’s upcoming film The Sunset Limited, which stars Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson. Jones also directed the film which will premiere on Saturday February 12 (9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT).
The show is based on Cormac McCarthy’s (The Road, All The Pretty Horses, The Crossing) play by the same name. This is one reason I wish I was not forced to cancel my subscription to HBO.
Watch the trailers below and tell us what you think!
The Sunset Limited is a searing two-character drama that mixes humor and pathos while examining the relationship between strangers who are brought together by desperate circumstances. Set in a New York tenement apartment, the story focuses on two very different men – a deeply religious black ex-con (Samuel L. Jackson) who thwarts the suicide attempt of an asocial white college professor (Tommy Lee Jones) who tried to throw himself in front of an oncoming subway train, The Sunset Limited. As the one attempts to connect on a rational, spiritual and emotional level, the other remains steadfest in his hard-earned despair. Locked in a philosophical debate, both passionately defend their personal credos and try to convert the other.
Based on the play of the same name by eminent Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Cormac McCarthy (The Road, All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing), The Sunset Limited is directed and executive produced by Tommy Lee Jones, written by McCarthy, produced by Barbara A. Hall, and is an HBO Films presentation of a Javelina Film Company production
