The trailer and poster for “Jayne Mansfield’s Car” has been released, and if you’ve been following this film, you can finally see what Billy Bob Thornton has been up to! The film was written and directed by Thornton and also stars Thornton along with Robert Duvall, John Hurt, Kevin Bacon, Robert Patrick, Ray Stevenson, Frances O’Connor and Katherine LaNasa. The comedy/drama, distributed by Anchor Bay Films, will be released On Demand Aug. 20. The film will be in select theaters Sept. 13.

Here’s the official synopsis of the film:

“In what critics are calling his best work as writer/director since SLINGBLADE, 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!'”
