OK, the reasons to be excited for "The Drop" are fairly obvious: the films features Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini and Matthias Schoenaerts (“Rust & Bone”). The director is Michaël R. Roskam, the filmmaker behind the Foreign Language Oscar nominee “Bullhead,” and the movie’s written by Dennis Lehane (“Gone Baby Gone,” “Mystic River”).

Update: A new clip and featurette for the film have gone online. Watch below (the two at the top)

OK, the reasons to be excited for "The Drop" are fairly obvious: the films features Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini and Matthias Schoenaerts (“Rust & Bone”). The director is Michaël R. Roskam, the filmmaker behind the Foreign Language Oscar nominee “Bullhead,” and the movie’s written by Dennis Lehane (“Gone Baby Gone,” “Mystic River”).

“The Drop” revolves around bartender Bob Saginowsk (Hardy) and his role in a scheme in which cash is funneled cash to local gangsters via “money drops” in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and becomes entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past.

The movie also stars Ann Dowd and John Ortiz and at one point was called “Animal Rescue” due to a subplot concerning a pit bull puppy. In the meantime, if you want the mechanics of “money drops” spelled out, Tom Hardy does his best in this new clip that sounds like some exposition from the opening of the movie. The other clip? An intimate meeting between Hardy and Rapace's character.  “The Drop” opens September 12 and will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend.
