File this under: movies you forgot existed. As much as he's a bonafide legend, and will go down as one of the great actors of his time, Robert De Niro still will sign on to the most random, middling fare from time to time. Which brings us to "The Bag Man." Never heard of it? Well, maybe you'll recall when it was first announced a couple years ago under the title "Motel." Still doesn't ring any bells? Don't sweat it because the first trailer is here.

The Bag Man

File this under: movies you forgot existed. As much as he's a bonafide legend, and will go down as one of the great actors of his time, Robert De Niro still will sign on to the most random, middling fare from time to time. Which brings us to "The Bag Man." Never heard of it? Well, maybe you'll recall when it was first announced a couple years ago under the title "Motel." Still doesn't ring any bells? Don't sweat it because the first trailer is here.

Co-starring John Cusack, Crispin Glover (!) and Rebecca Da Costa, the film is basically your standard crime flick, which revolves around a bag of money. Because there's always a bag of money. And there's always a slinky, femme fatale too, along with a seedy location for everything to go down. This movie does have it all, but all that it does have looks pretty uninspired, which may explain why it's been sitting around for a while. But hey, it must've been a thrill for first time feature director David Grovic to work with this cast, so at least there's that.

"The Bag Man" opens in limited release on February 28th. Watch below.
