God's Pocket trailer: Watch Philip Seymour Hoffman in final role before his death
Hoffman stars as Mickey Scarpato in John Slattery's directorial debut
The trailer for one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final films, black comedy God’s Pocket, has been released.
The late Oscar-winning actor stars in the lead as professional thief Mickey Scarpato, who tries to cover up the devastating facts surrounding the death of his 22-year-old stepson.
“Something happened to Leon (Caleb Landry Jones) over on that job, something no one’s told us yet,” says his wife Jeannie ( Christina Hendricks) after hearing news of the suspicious building site “ accident”.
“I’ll see what I can find out,” replies Scarpato, as his downwards spiral into the truth begins.
John Turturro, Richard Jenkins and Eddie Marsan also feature in John Slattery’s directorial debut, based on Pete Dexter’s novel.
Hoffman will also be seen in Anton Corbijn’s thriller, A Most Wanted Man, the trailer for which came out just days ago, before he returns as Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
God’s Pocket is due for US release on 9 May with a UK date yet to be announced.
