Matthew McConaughey is one of those actors that truly gets better with age. From Mud to Dallas Buyer’s Club to Interstellar, the last 10 years have proven just how talented he is. And it seems he’s bringing his talents to a new type of role in his new film, The Beach Bum.
In the movie, McConaughey plays Moondog, who is described as “a rebellious burnout who only knows how to live life by his own rules”. And the red band trailer certainly shows that. The plot seems to follow Moondog’s ridiculous life as he parties and tries to write a novel. Perhaps if it was anyone else in this lead role, I wouldn’t be interested. But I simply could not tear my eyes away from McConaughey in this trailer. Just from these two minutes, his quirky performance is already entrancing.
The Beach Bum is described as a comedy, and seems to have an indie, hazy aesthetic to it that, considering its star-studded cast, is incredibly intriguing! Zac Efron, Isla Fisher, Jonah Hill, and Snoop Dogg are just a few major names that join McConaughey in the movie, and we have a feeling that it’s going to be as weird and wild as it will be unforgettable. We can’t wait to see where The Beach Bum goes!
