'Beast of Burden' Trailer: Harry Potter is a Drug Mule
From Slashfilm - January 21, 2018

Daniel Radcliffe just went and got himself in over his head in theBeast of Burden trailer. The film (not to be confused with the Rolling Stones song) features Radcliffe as a man pushed to extremes to help save his wife. Lots of expository dialogue follows. Watch theBeast of Burdentrailer below.

Harry Potter has really fallen on hard times since his Hogwarts days. InBeast of Burden,Daniel Radcliffe plays pilot Sean Haggerty, a man at the edge of his rope as he agrees to become a drug mule. Seans motivations are pure, sort of: smuggling drugs will help his wife with a life-saving operation. At least, thats what Ive gleamed from this exposition-heavyBeast of Burden trailer.

This is an interesting trailer. Moments of it border on being downright abstract, while others are loaded with scenes where characters are shouting out their motivations, i.e., I only did this to save my wife! I have a feeling this is simply the result of trailer editing, and not reflectiveof the film as a whole. Heres the officialBeast of Burden synopsis.

Pilot Sean Haggerty (Daniel Radcliffe) must deliver cocaine across the US-Mexico border for his final run as a drug smuggler. Alone in a small plane, he is faced with the burden of choosing between his allegiance to the Cartel, his deal with the Drug Enforcement Administration and saving his increasingly tense relationship with his wife, eagerly awaiting his return.
