The trailer for Bandit from director Allan Ungar starring Josh Duhamel, Elisha Cuthbert, and Mel Gibson has been released.
Set in the mid-1980s, Duhamel plays Gilbert Galvan Jr., a charming career criminal, who escapes from a US prison in Michigan and crosses the border into Canada where he assumes the identity of Robert Whiteman. While there, he falls in love with a social worker, Andrea (Cuthbert), whom he can’t provide for, so he turns to robbing banks and discovers that he’s exceptionally good at it.
Under the guise of a security analyst, Robert begins flying around the country robbing multiple cities in a day, eventually catching the attention of national news outlets that dub him The Flying Bandit. Addicted to the rush and money that provides his double life, Robert eventually turns to loanshark and reputed gangster Tommy Kay (Gibson) for bigger opportunities. But with Robert’s notoriety growing in record time, he’s put into the direct sights of a ruthless detective (Nestor Carbonell) who will stop at nothing to bring him down.
Check out the trailer below.
Bandit is in theaters and On Demand starting September 23.
