‘Jayne Mansfield's Car’ Trailer and Poster

Actor Billy Bob Thornton returns to the director's chair for his first narrative feature in more than 10 years with Jayne Mansfield's Car. We have the first trailer and poster for this Southern period drama, which follows two families who come together for a funeral in 1969. Take a look at the first footage from this upcoming drama, co-starring Robert Duvall, John Hurt, and Kevin Bacon, debuting on VOD formats August 20 before its theatrical debut September 13.

In what critics are calling his best work as writer/director since Sling Blade, Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton stars - along with Oscar winner Robert Duvall, two-time Oscar nominee John Hurt and Golden Globe winner Kevin Bacon - in this story of fathers and sons, wars and peace, and the turbulent time that changed America forever. It's 1969 in a small Alabama town, and the death of a quirky clan's long-estranged wife and mother brings together two very different families for the funeral. But do the scars of the past hide differences that will tear them apart or expose truths that could lead to the most unexpected collisions of all? Robert Patrick (Walk the Line), Ray Stevenson (Dexter), Frances O'Connor (The Hunter), and Katherine LaNasa (Deception) co-star in the acclaimed comedy/drama that Twitch Film calls "A perfect film for a lazy summer day with near-perfect performances across the board!"

Jayne Mansfield's Car was released September 13th, 2013.
