Trailer For John Travolta Heist Thriller “The Forger”


John Travolta is hanging in there.  I am going to give him that.  He might not being busting blocks these days but he is appearing in our type of movie if a little smaller in scale.  Here is the trailer for one of them in “The Forger”.  He will also appear in John McTiernan’s “War Birds” and Ti West’s revenge western “In The Vally Of Violence”.

A suspenseful and moving thriller, The Forger switches seamlessly from bracing violence and criminal hijinks to scenes of painstaking familial reparations. It is also a showcase for the singular talents of John Travolta, who turns in an affecting performance as a man who has spent his life applying his artistic gifts in all the wrong ways.

Knowing that his teenage son Will (Tye Sheridan) has stage IV cancer, Ray Cutter (Travolta) manages to get out of prison nine months ahead of schedule. The hitch is that, while Ray wants to go straight, the shady character who made Ray’s early release possible expects him to pull off a heist as payment. The job involves snatching Monet’s Woman with Parasol from the museum where it’s on display and replacing it with a replica so perfect that no one will notice. A master thief and a world-class art forger, Ray is literally the only man for the job — and in any case has no choice. But can he perform this high-stakes robbery while also trying to fulfill his dying son’s wishes?

The Forger will have an April 25 release date.
