Check out the new trailer for Jeff Nichols' follow-up to 2011's sensational "Take Shelter." The film debuted at Cannes to mostly positive reviews, suggesting it is more commercial than "Take Shelter," if not quite as audacious. Matthew McConaughey--who had a great comeback year in 2012 with "Magic Mike," "Bernie," "Killer Joe" and "The Paperboy"-- stars alongside "Tree of Life"'s The Sheridan, Jacob Lofland, Reese Witherspoon, Sam Shepard and Michael Shannon (who also starred in "Take Shelter" and Nichols' debut feature "Shotgun Stories"). Synopsis and clips below: Mud is an adventure about two boys, Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and his friend Neckbone (Jacob Lofland), who find a man named Mud (Matthew McConnaughey) hiding out on an island in the Mississippi.  Mud describes fantastic scenarios—he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. »
