Between James McAvoy’s dirty crime drama Filth that was released earlier this year and Jude Law’s upcoming Dom Hemingway, good actors gone bad (hilariously, spectacularly bad) are having a moment.

A new red band trailer for Dom Hemingway, which is scheduled for release next April, suggests that Law may be on an even more severe bender than we had previously thought. It’s one of the most madcap, wildly appealing previews I’ve seen in some time and you can check out all the drug-fueled carnage below, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies:

With boatloads of sex, cocaine, booze, guns, car crashes and over-the-top profanity, Dom Hemingway looks like a viciously funny crime caper, boosted by a totally unhinged performance from Law. Our reviewer David Baldwin caught the film at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year and was impressed with the results, calling it, “one of the first must-see films of 2014″ and awarding it three-and-a-half stars.

The official plot synopsis for the film, which was written and directed by Richard Shepard  (best known for ABC’s Ugly Betty and The CW’s Ringer), reads as follows:

Jude Law plays DOM HEMINGWAY, a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse who is funny, profane, and dangerous. After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demian Bichir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.

I’m really looking forward to watching Jude Law’s performance here, which looks utterly insane and probably brilliant. The actor’s known for his nice-guy roles, so any movie that gives him the opportunity to cut loose (or party with prostitutes, as appears to be Hemingway’s habit) is alright in my book. The film also stars some extraordinarily talented supporting actors, including Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke and A Better Life‘s Demian Bichir, so the potential for some crazy-good performances in addition to the just-plain-crazy ones seems sky-high.

Are you excited for Dom Hemingway, or is Law playing too far against type for you to buy into the film? Let us know in the comments section!

Dom Hemingway opened in the UK earlier this year and will hit US screens on April 4th, 2014.
