Robert Pattinson finds himself in a tough spot as he tries to bail his mentally challenged brother out from Rikers jail in the new trailer for the gritty New York-set crime thriller "Good Time."

The former "Twilight" heartthrob, who was recently seen as a heavily bearded adventurer in the critically acclaimed jungle-journey drama "The Lost City of Z," radically goes against type yet again to play a New York hoodlum in this pressure cooker of a thriller from NYC-based filmmaking brothers Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie (who also co-stars as Pattinson's incarcerated brother).

The film, which features supporting turns by Oscar-nominated actors Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight) and Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), premiered to strong reviews at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Acquired by A24 Films, "Good Time" is due to arrive 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.
