Robert Pattinson is nearly unrecognizable as a New York street hoodlum who is looking to get his younger brother out of prison in the debut trailer for "Good Time."

In this gritty New York-set crime drama, the former "Twilight" star gets to really step away from his heartthrob image as he plays a two-bit criminal who finds himself on a downward spiral after his brother is arrested and thrown in jail for a bank robbery they botched earlier in the day.

The film is the latest outing from indie filmmaking brothers Josh and Benny Safdie, following their acclaimed 2015 street-level addiction drama "Heaven Knows What."

Co-starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Barkhad Abdi, and Benny Safdie as Pattinson's simpleminded brother, "Good Time" is making its world premiere this week at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, playing in competition. The drama will then open in theaters on August 11th.

synopsis:
Following the mind-bending Heaven Knows What, celebrated filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie return to the mean streets of New York City with Good Time, a hypnotic crime thriller that explores with bracing immediacy the tragic sway of family and fate.

After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine "Connie" Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city's underworld in an increasingly desperate -- and dangerous -- attempt to get his brother Nick (Benny Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Connie finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing their lives hang in the balance.

Anchored by a career-defining performance from Robert Pattinson, Good Time is a psychotic symphony of propulsive intensity crafted by two of the most exciting young directors working today. Josh and Benny Safdie’s transcendent vision is an intoxicating portrait of desperation and destruction that will not be soon forgotten.
