A few months back we got our hands on the first trailer for Kevin Spacey’s new movie Casino Jack, and today we get a new feature trailer.
Based on a true story the film sees Spacey play disgraced Washington power broker Jack Abramoff, a once high-powered lobbyist whose bribery schemes and fraudulent dealings with Indian casinos ultimately landed him in prison.
In addition to Spacey the movie stars Kelly Preston, as his wife, and Barry Pepper as his protégé Michael Scanlon.
Still no word on an Irish release but the movie did just show at the Toronto International Film Festival so it can’t be long now.
Two–time Academy Award Winner Kevin Spacey gives the performance of a lifetime in Casino Jack, a riotous new film starring Spacey as a man hell bent on acquiring all that the good life has to offer. He plays in the same game as the highest of rollers and resorts to awe–inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to get what he wants. Inspired by true events that are too over–the–top for even the wildest imaginations to conjure, “Casino Jack” lays bare the wild excesses and escapades of Jack Abramoff. Aided by his business partner Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), Jack parlays his clout over some of the world’s most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When the two enlist a mob–connected buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines.
