Killer Joe

Read up on the new McConaughey movie that you were not going to see tonight. 

Matthew McConaughey has always been more than just an on-screen pretty boy. His versatility doesn't span as diversely as Johnny Depp, but he's branched into many film genres. Today two of his films are receiving wide release: Magic Mike where he plays a mentor to two young strippers and Killer Joe as a cop and secret hit man.

Although he's starred in a few cringe-worthy rom-coms McConaughey has starred in several serious law-dramas all of which were critically acclaimed. However Killer Joe will show a different side to the actor: psychotic and murderous (Texas Chainsaw doesn't count as a role, it counts as a filler between projects! I rest my case).

I'm not a horror fan, but I love suspense and I was staring into  McConaughey's crazy eyes during the trailer. I'm really excited to see what he's going to pull out of his hat this time. As well he has a pretty good supporting cast including Emile Hirsch and the up and comer Juno Temple.

Watch the trailer below and let me know what you think!
