By now, you've heard the praise for David Lowery's outlaw tale "Ain't Them Bodies Saints." Premiering at Sundance in January to all sorts of good word and then hitting Cannes to play the Critics' Week sidebar, the movie continues it's march toward the big screen with a brand new trailer that's as beautiful as all get out.

The story seems simple enough: After a crime spree leaves an officer wounded, Bob (Casey Affleck) takes the blame and heads to prison, leaving his girl Ruth (Rooney Mara) behind, and pregnant. Four years later, he breaks out and makes his way to back to her to see meet the child he's never seen, but of course, it won't be easy. And the result is a picture that we called a "searing, romantic crime drama and love story...a wholly engrossing and impressive piece of work that the movie world will be talking about all year long." We definitely hope so.

Co-starring Ben Foster, Nate Parker and Keith Carradine, "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" arrives on August 16th. Check out the trailer below along with two videos of Lowery talking about the film. Also note, his evolving facial hair. Here's our interview with director David Lowery from Sundance, and here's our review of the film also from the festival.
