Anchor Bay has sent us an exclusive poster and clip for the upcoming comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles. Directed by Wayne Kramer (The Cooler), the film is three short stories connected by items from a Southern small-town pawn shop. The twisted tales involve “a man searching for his kidnapped wife, a couple of white-supremacist meth heads, and a sad-sack Elvis impersonator.” It sounds like the fun insanity that permeated Kramer’s underseen 2006 film Running Scared. This clip doesn’t show any of that movie’s electric cinematography and pacing, but that doesn’t mean those aspects will be absent from the rest of the picture. As you can see from the trailer, the potential is certainly there.
Hit the jump to check out the exclusive poster and clip. The film stars Brendan Fraser, Elijah Wood, Vincent D’Onofrio, Thomas Jane, Lukas Haas, Norman Reedus, Chi McBride, Matt Dillon, and Paul Walker. Pawn Shop Chronicles opens in theaters and hits VOD on July 12th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Pawn Shop Chronicles:
In this shop, these people may be pawning far more than they bargained for: Brendan Fraser (THE MUMMY), Elijah Wood (THE LORD OF THE RINGS), Vincent D’Onofrio (MEN IN BLACK), Academy Award® nominee Matt Dillon (CRASH), Norman Reedus (“The Walking Dead), Thomas Jane (“Hung”), Lukas Haas (INCEPTION), and Paul Walker (FAST & FURIOUS), star in 3 twisted tales all connected by items from a Southern small-town pawn shop. A man searching for his kidnapped wife, a couple of white-supremacist meth heads, and a sad-sack Elvis impersonator, plus more desperate characters come to life in the action-packed and hilarious story written by Adam Minarovich and from the director of THE COOLER and RUNNING SCARED, Wayne Kramer.
