First look at Schrader's upcoming thriller.

Of all the 1970s "Movie Brats" who are still plying their trade today, Paul Schrader is arguably the one doing the most interesting work. With his last film, First Reformed, he delivered arguably the best movie of his directorial career and a contender for the best movie of the past decade.

Next up for Schrader is The Card Counter. The film stars Oscar Isaac as a former military interrogator who now uses the skills he developed to become a successful gambler. He finds himself acting as a mentor to a young man (Tye Sheridan) seeking revenge against an enemy.

Tiffany Haddish and Willem Dafoe also star.

The Card Counter is in UK/ROI cinemas from November 5th.

Check out the first trailer below.




The official synopsis reads:

Redemption is the long game in Paul Schrader’s THE CARD COUNTER. Told with Schrader’s trademark cinematic intensity, the revenge thriller tells the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past decisions, and features riveting performances from stars Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan and Willem Dafoe.
