Lawless, UK quad poster

It was a long, eventful road that John Hillcoat's adaptation of Matt Bondurant's "The Wettest County In The World" took into production, but the Nick Cave-scripted, Prohibition-era drama -- now titled "Lawless" -- will finally hit theaters on August 31st with a star-studded cast in tow. At the heart of all the action and drama is the youngest of the three Bondurant brothers, played by Shia LaBeouf, who finds himself front and center for the film's latest poster.

The story follows the aforementioned brothers who struggle to hang on to their lucrative moonshine business during the fading years of prohibition, with a sadistic special agent on their tail. As our Cannes reviewer notes, the film is a straight up genre piece and probably won't be threatening to come the Oscars next winter, but "as far as top-tier storytelling goes, it doesn't get much better than this" despite the fact it "doesn't quite achieve the lyricism or thematic depth that Hillcoat previously attained." It sounds like the tagline on this new poster says it all: When the law was corrupt, outlaws became heroes. Update: Empire has a cool U.K. quad poster. 

Red Shia LaBeouf poster removed at the request of The Weinstein Company.
