Gerard Butler is having one helluva year. I believe we've now seen him in every genre, except maybe horror. Filling out the psychological thriller, Butler co-stars with Jamie Fox in Law Abiding Citizen. With the film due out in October, Overture is getting things rolling with two posters and a trailer preview.
Law Abiding Citizen Posters + Trailer
Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) is an upstanding family man whose wife and daughter are brutally murdered during a home invasion. When the killers are caught, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), a hotshot young Philadelphia prosecutor, is assigned to the case. Over his objections, Nick is forced by his boss to offer one of the suspects a light sentence in exchange for testifying against his accomplice.
Fast forward ten years. The man who got away with murder is found dead and Clyde Shelton coolly admits his guilt. Then he issues a warning to Nick: Either fix the flawed justice system that failed his family, or key players in the trial will die.
Soon Shelton follows through on his threats, orchestrating from his jail cell a string of spectacularly diabolical assassinations that can be neither predicted nor prevented. Philadelphia is gripped with fear as Shelton’s high-profile targets are slain one after another and the authorities are powerless to halt his reign of terror. Only Nick can stop the killing, and to do so he must outwit this brilliant sociopath in a harrowing contest of wills in which even the smallest misstep means death. With his own family now in Shelton’s crosshairs, Nick finds himself in a desperate race against time facing a deadly adversary who seems always to be one step ahead.

Check out the trailer below. It looks pretty cool, and I like how it is Jamie Foxx now playing the character in trouble. Entertainment Tonight released the trailer, and TrailerAddict made it embeddable.
Law Abiding Citizen opens to theaters on October 16th.
