He's a professional thief. She's a professional race car driver. Together, they make one hell of a couple.

Check out the new U.S. trailer for "Racer and the Jailbird," a French-language crime thriller starring Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts (Red Sparrow, Rust and Bone) and French actress Adele Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Color).

Marking Schoenaerts' latest collaboration with Oscar-nominated Belgian filmmaker Michael R. Roskam, following their critically acclaimed crime thrillers "Bullhead" and "The Drop," the stylish film chronicles the steamy love affair of a notorious bank robber and a competitive race-car driver who has no clue what her new beau does for a living.

"Racer and the Jailbird" will make its way to the States on May 4th.

RACER AND THE JAILBIRD is the latest breathlessly stylish and sexy crime epic from Oscar-nominated director Michael R. Roskam (Bullhead, The Drop), set against an electrifying backdrop of high-speed racing and high-stakes heists.

As a member of a notorious Brussels gang renowned for their expertly-executed robberies, Gigi (frequent Roskam collaborator Matthias Schoenaerts) tends to his front, a luxury automobile import-export business, in his downtime. Sparks fly when he meets glamorous and affluent race car driver Bibi (Adele Exarchopoulos), and despite their wildly different backgrounds, the pair fall instantly and tragically in love. While Gigi attempts to break away from his illicit history, two things stand in the couple's way to a happy life together: an unrelenting mob hungry for another heist, and the cops that are closing in on them.

A triumph in on-screen chemistry and atmosphere, RACER AND THE JAILBIRD is a fiery collision between thrilling ensemble crime saga and intimate Shakespearean tragedy.
