Mud Trailer Starring Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon

Mud Trailer: Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon Are Mysterious Drifters

Though it seems almost impossible that romantic-comedy veterans Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon have never played love interests on screen, Mud marks the first time they're playing opposite each other. However, the trailer for the indie drama looks far from lighthearted. McConaughey plays a fugitive who appears on a small island in the Mississippi River and befriends two young boys who let him hide out in their boat. Witherspoon plays Mud's estranged love, though it's not clear whether the couple is meant for each other or better off apart — or whether Mud is a falsely accused good guy or a villain who's just manipulating the boys into keeping his secret.

McConaughey has been getting lots of accolades for his acting lately, and his work in Mud may garner him more; I was impressed with his performance in the preview alone. Even though we don't get to see them interact, I'm looking forward to seeing him paired with Witherspoon (who gets to use her own Southern accent). I'm also interested in seeing Michael Shannon in the film, whose presence gives Mud just a little more ominousness. Mud will come out at Sundance, and we're still waiting on an Australian release date, but you can watch the preview after the jump.
