A brand new trailer has been released featuring Samuel L. Jackson as a hardened ex-con. As we reported previously, the project was acquired by IFC films late last year. The new and improved theaterical trailer also features newcomer Ruth Negga as the sexy young woman in Jackson’s life. The official film synopsis reads:

After twenty-five years in prison, Foley is finished with the grifter’s life. When he meets an elusive young woman named Iris, the possibility of a new start looks real. But his past is proving to be a stubborn companion: Ethan, the son of his former partner, has an ingenious plan and he wants Foley in. The harder Foley tries to escape his past, the tighter he is ensnared in Ethan’s web of secrets, until it becomes all too clear to Foley that some wrongs can never be made right.
