Oscar Isaac’s most violent role could finally earn him an Academy Award nomination…
Participant Media has released the trailer for the 35-year-old Guatemalan and Cuban American actor’s latest film “A Most Violent Year.”
Isaac and Jessica Chastain star in the film, which was written and directed by J.C. Chandor (All is Lost).
“A Most Violent Year” is set in New York City during the winter of 1981 — one of the most violent years in the city’s history. The film follows the lives of an immigrant family trying to expand their business and capitalize on opportunities amid violence, decay and corruption.
A24 has given an awards-season release date of December 31 for the thriller.
It will open in Los Angeles and New York on New Year’s Eve before expanding during January.
