Ryan Reynolds Stars in 'Mississippi Grind' - Watch the Trailer!

Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn star in the trailer for their new film Mississippi Grind!

In this lively, freewheeling road movie, Gerry (Mendelsohn) is a talented but down-on-his-luck gambler whose fortunes begins to change when he meets Curtis (Reynolds), a younger, highly charismatic poker player. The two strike up an immediate friendship and Gerry quickly persuades his new friend to accompany him on a road trip to a legendary high stakes poker game in New Orleans. As they make their way down the Mississippi River, Gerry and Curtis manage to find themselves in just about every bar, racetrack, casino, and pool hall they can find, experiencing both incredible highs and dispiriting lows, but ultimately forging a deep and genuine bond that will stay with them long after their adventure is over.

Sienna Miller, Analeigh Tipton, Robin Weigert, and Alfre Woodard also star. The film opens in theaters on September 25, and is available on DirecTV beginning August 13.
