The Company You Keep 2012 Official Trailer

Just last week we reported that Robert Redford’s latest film, The Company You Keep, managed to score a distribution deal before it even played any festivals. Well, the film is gearing up to play Venice and Toronto regardless, so Tiff has released a trailer promoting it. Complete with typewriter sounds and vintage news footage, said trailer starts off by making The Company You Keep look like it’s going to be an authentic, journalistic look at the history of the radical anti-war group

The Weather Underground, but then we’re suddenly dumped into present day, and it’s revealed that this is actually going to be a fun-looking chase movie about the last few members of the movement still being on the run from the law. The Company You Keep is full of grizzled old activists/bank robbers, plucky young reporters, plucky young F.B.I. agents, action, intrigue, murder 

Last time we saw Robert Redford behind the camera, he delivered the forgettable, by-the-numbers legal drama The Conspirator, but now he appears to be stepping up his game a bit with his next project. It’s called The Company You Keep, a film that boasts one of the most impressive cast lists I’ve seen in quite a while.

Today, thanks to The Playlist, we have the trailer for the film which comes off as a drama with a splash of thrills. The official synopsis reads as follows: The Company You Keep chronicles the story of a former Weather Underground militant wanted by the FBI for 30 years, who must go on the run when his true identity is exposed by a young, ambitious reporter hell-bent on making a name for himself. As for the cast, it includes Robert Redford, Shia Labeouf, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Anna Kendrick, Terrence Howard.
