The first trailer for the English-language remake of Patrice Leconte's award-winning French film Man on the Train has arrived, and it gives us the first opportunity to see U2′s drummer, Larry Mullen, Jr. making his acting debut.
Directed by Mary McGuckian and also starring the legendary Donald Sutherland, the film revolves around a thief (Mullan) who meets a professor (Sutherland) when he arrives in town to rob a bank. After the professor offers the gangster shelter, a friendship of sorts develops between these two opposites. Each starts to envy the other, and by the week's end, everything will change for both of them.
Take a look at the first trailer below and see what you think of Mullan's first acting gig. Man on the Train will arrive via video-on-demand October 28, with a limited theatrical release to follow.
