‘THE CHANNEL’ Trailer Teases Brutally Ugly and Absolutely Terrifying Heist Thriller

Brainstorm Media has dropped the first official trailer for William Kaufman’s adrenaline-fueled bank heist thriller The Channel ahead of the film’s July 14 release date.

Written and directed by Kaufman, and starring Clayne Crawford (Finestkind, “Lethal Weapon”) and Max Martini (The Tender Bar, “The Purge”), the film follows a desperate criminal, his out-of-control brother, and their motley crew of ex-marines as they flee from the scene of a bank-heist-gone-wrong to escape New Orleans and the determined FBI agent who pursues them.

Commenting on the film, Kaufman said that, as a filmmaker he has always been drawn to the action thriller genre and he quickly decided, with his partner Paul Reichelt, that they wanted to try their hand at creating a brutal, dangerous and bloody heist film:

“But if we were going to go down that familiar path, we needed to try and tackle it for a different perspective. That’s why the story isn’t about the bank robbery… In fact, the heist happens in the opening minutes of the film. My focus as I set out to write it, would be about the criminals, the two Sheridan brothers from the Irish Channel and how their choices affect themselves and those they love, as they desperately try to escape the consequences of their actions. All this set in a world where violence is never sexy and cool, but instead, brutally ugly, and absolutely terrifying … To me this film, in many ways is a love letter to the films of my youth. An unapologetic, dark, violent tale about the cost of living with the consequences of the choices we make, and how they affect ourselves and the people we hold dearest.”

The Channel will open in Select Theaters and On Demand on July 14 and in the meantime, we’ll leave you with a “brutally ugly and absolutely terrifying” taste of the film in the trailer below.
