I could be way off the mark here… but this trailer made me laugh. Edited and colored like many revenge/crime/action thrillers before it, Crime Story stars Richard Dreyfuss as a retired mob boss who has cancer but must take revenge for his family… seriously that’s what it’s about.

Did you get that vibe? That feeling like when Saturday Night Live parodied ‘Joker’ as Oscar the grouch. There’s some tension and I apologize if this feels too negative, but after all its promotional material, not the movie itself.
To be released in select theaters and on Digital/On Demand on August 13th, 2021
