Matthew McConaughey Impresses in First Trailer for Jeff Nichols’ ‘Mud’



The first trailer for Jeff Nichols’ (Take Shelter) Mud, starring Matthew McConaughey, dropped Wednesday, and it looks like the actor is picking up in 2013 right where he left off in 2012. After impressive performances in films like Bernie, Killer Joe, and, fine, Magic Mike, it looks as if McConaughey is building up quite a resume as of late. In Mud, he plays a fugitive hiding out on an island in the Mississippi River, where two boys (one played by The Tree of Life’s Tye Sheridan) discover and befriend the drifter. The rest of the cast rounds out nicely, including Reese Witherspoon, Sam Shepherd, Michael Shannon and Sarah Paulson. Mud will be in limited release April 20th, watch the trailer after the jump.
