Rate-a-Trailer: The Sunset Limited
Like films that feature only one actor, movies that are set in one location can be a hard sell for audiences — unless you’ve got an amazing script and a solid cast. Case in point, the trailer for The Sunset Limited, an HBO Films adaptation of a Cormac McCarthy play that stars Tommy Lee Jones (who also directs) and Samuel L. Jackson, just landed online, and it looks fantastic. (This might be at least in part because McCarthy adapted the screenplay himself.) Like all of his work, the storyline is intense: A man stops another man from throwing himself in front of a train, and then forces him to come back to his apartment; there, the men proceed to debate on a variety of important topics — including but not limited to religion.

The Sunset Limited will premiere on HBO on February 12.
