This is the trailer for a new thriller called Reasonable Doubt, which stars Samuel L. Jackson and Dominic Cooper. I wasn't sure what to expect from this, but it looks like an intensely entertaining movie. I do have to say that the trailer reveals way to much information. It would have been nice to leave some of the twists and suspense a secret. It still looks good though!
Up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden commits a fatal hit-and-run and feels compelled to throw the case against the accused criminal found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitch's worst fears come true when he realizes that he acquitted a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.

VOD is where it’s at these days. In recent weeks, various titles have been scheduled to land on-demand before opening in theaters, from Lars von Trier’s four-hour-long sex epic Nymphomaniac to the Sharlto Copley-starring mind-bender Open Grave. The trend seems like it’ll only continue growing through next year, with simultaneous VOD-theatrical release dates being added to the calendar on a daily basis.
One film taking that road to release is Reasonable Doubt, which stars Dominic Cooper and Samuel L. Jackson. Today, we have the first trailer for the movie, clearing up a few plot aspects and promising a very fast-moving thriller. Check it out below:
Though the film’s plot reminds me an awful lot of The Lincoln Lawyer, the presence of capable stars like Cooper and Jackson suggest that Reasonable Doubt might turn out decently. The trailer certainly plays up the cat-and-mouse angle, as well »

One of the hardest working men in showbiz, Samuel L. Jackson's indie drama Reasonable Doubt, which he stars in alongside Dominic Cooper and Gloria Reuben, has been picked up by Lionsgate (Us rights), for a 2014 release. The $8 million German-Canadian co-production, shot over 27 days in November and December last year, in Winnipeg and Chicago, was written by Peter Dowling, and directed by Peter Howitt. It centers on an up-and-coming assistant D.A. (Cooper) who has his life turned upside down when he's involved in a hit and run and another man (Jackson) is arrested for his crime and charged with murder.

From the director of "Antitrust" and co-writer of "Flightplan"! Excited yet?! Those are the best endorsements the marketing people could muster for "Reasonable Doubt," a new legal thriller that has managed to get both Samuel L. Jackson and Dominic Cooper into the cinematic jury box. Written by Peter A. Dowling (responsible for those aforementioned movies) and directed by Peter P. Croudins (who has no other IMDb credits), this overcooked drama follows a rising District Attorney who prosecutes a hit-and-run crime that he actually committed, but throws the case to make sure the wrongfully accused man gets off. The twist? That man is a killer and must be stopped before...well, you get it. Seemingly tailor-made for DVD bargain bins and late night cable runs, this one looks pretty tepid overall and something that even Ashley Judd would've passed on. "Reasonable Doubt" hits theaters and VOD on January 17, 2014. »

Despite the release date placement of this new thriller Reasonable Doubt, the presence of Dominic Cooper and Samuel L. Jackson actually have me giving it a second glance. The first trailer for the film makes it feel like a thriller that wouldn't be out of place in the 90s, as a District Attorney who thinks he's responsible for killing a man in a hit and run accident, inadvertently sets free the accused killer, thinking he's innocent. The only downside here is that the trailer seems to give away the whole movie, unless there's a twist that will save it. Still, this one looks better than most of the films coming to theaters early next year. Here's the first trailer for Peter P. Croudins' Reasonable Doubt, originally from Yahoo: Reasonable Doubt is directed by newcomer Peter P. Croudins and written by Peter A. Dowling (Flightplan). When up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch »

As a great lover of legal thrillers, I feel a significant measure of confidence in saying that my excitement for the upcoming film Reasonable Doubt is justified. Opening in January, the film boasts two stellar lead actors, Dominic Cooper and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as a seriously intriguing hook.
Four new images from Reasonable Doubt that were released today don’t add much to what we already know about the project, but they do introduce how all of the film’s main players will look.
Reasonable Doubt follows up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Cooper), who is involved in a fatal hit-and-run and flees the scene of the crime. When Brockden finds himself representing an accused criminal (Jackson) who was found with the body and is being tried for murder, the Da can’t fathom sending a man to prison in his place and instead throws the case. To his horror, »

Next year we'll see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter star Dominic Cooper in some big blockbusters like DreamWorks' Need for Speed, and apparently in some kind return as Howard Stark in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But earlier in the year, the actor will lead a low key thriller called Reasonable Doubt. Funnily enough, the film also features Marvel regular Samuel L. Jackson in the story of a District Attorney (Cooper) who has his life turned upside down when he's involved in a hit and run and another man is arrested for his crime and charged with murder. But it's what happens after the trial that makes for a truly terrifying scenario for this Da. Now we have some first look photos from the early 2014 thriller just below. Here's a first look at Peter P. Croudins' Reasonable Doubt via Collider: Reasonable Doubt is directed by newcomer Peter P. Croudins and written »

Having lived in New York for thirty plus years, I can attest to the fact that yes, among the city's enormous skyscrapers there is much misery to be found, including muggers, rapists, murderers, and a wacky mayor who has seen fit to wage war against soda.
More on this one soon.
