Forest Whitaker seems to be drifting back into the spotlight. Last year, he led the hit "Lee Daniels' The Butler" and appeared in support in "Out Of The Furnace," and now he has a bonafide arthouse world film with the Berlin International Film Festival-approved “Two Men In Town.” Helmed by “Outside The Law” director Rachid Bouchareb, the film’s French trailer has arrived online ahead of its release in that country and you won’t need to know French to watch it.

Two Men In Town

Forest Whitaker seems to be drifting back into the spotlight. Last year, he led the hit "Lee Daniels' The Butler" and appeared in support in "Out Of The Furnace," and now he has a bonafide arthouse world film with the Berlin International Film Festival-approved “Two Men In Town.” Helmed by “Outside The Law” director Rachid Bouchareb, the film’s French trailer has arrived online ahead of its release in that country and you won’t need to know French to watch it.

Despite being an English-language film and being set in New Mexico, the Whitaker-starring film—which includes Harvey Keitel, Ellen Burstyn, Brenda Blethyn and Luis Guzman— will be released by Cohen Media Group later this year. The Bouchareb-helmed film, based on Jose Giovanni’s 1973 film of the same name, falls neatly into the ex-con-trying-to-go-straight subgenre albeit with some stellar cinematography which you can glimpse in the newly released trailer. While not escaping its genre’s confines, we still liked the film when it premiered in Berlin earlier this year.

“Two Men In Town” hits French theaters next month on May 7th. Watch the trailer below. [via Shadow and Act]
