When you hear the name Daniel Craig what comes to mind? Sleek tuxedos, rugged good looks, those tight blue trunks from Casino Royale?
Well whatever it is, we’re betting it wasn’t a redneck thief and yet that’s exactly who Daniel’s playing in his new film Logan Lucky.
From award winning director Steven Soderbergh, Logan Lucky tells the story of two brothers, Jimmy (Channing Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Adam Driver), who in an effort to reverse a family curse, attempt an elaborate robbery during the infamous Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race.
Check out the trailer below:

If the brothers are going to be able to pull the robbery off though they’re going to need help, so who else can they turn to but eccentric and slightly unhinged thief Joe Bang played by none other than Daniel Craig.
There’s only one problem, Bang is ‘in-car-cer-a-ted’ and the brothers are going to have to get him out if their scheme is going to work.
We’re sure everything goes to plan…
The boys aren’t alone though and they’re backed up by an all-star cast including; Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston, Sebastian Stan and Jesco White.
The film marks the return of Steven Soderbergh to the big screen for the first time in four years.
Logan Lucky storms into cinemas on August 25.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
