Spinner has premiered this look at the film, one that finds Mullen Jr. testing his first time acting muscles against bonafide legend Donald Sutherland, and actually holding up pretty well. Even if that goatee is doing half of the heavy lifting. The story follows retired small town poetry professor (Sutherland) who is preparing for open-heart surgery who crosses paths with a stranger (Mullen Jr.) planning to rob the local bank, and the two strike up an unlikely friendship. Sutherland is always great in this kind of role, and Mullen Jr. as the mysterious, sort of villain? Yeah, he works we guess, even if the novelty factor of him up on screen is still pretty big.
"The Man On The Train" was directed by Mary McGuckian ("The Bridge At San Luis Rey") and you can order it up on your iDevice if you need something to pass the time on the plane, train or automobile your're taking to grandma's house this weekend. Watch below.
