‘The Bikeriders’ trailer is full of big bikes, bigger accents

If you’re looking for a movie featuring revved-up motorcycles, slicked-back hair, and actors going full throttle into bonkers accents, then The Bikeriders is for you.

Directed by Jeff Nichols and starring Austin Butler, Jodie Comer, and Tom Hardy, The Bikeriders follows the rise of the Vandals, a Midwestern biking gang. What starts as a club for outsiders slowly morphs into something more sinister, leading members like Kathy (Comer), her husband Benny (Butler), and leader Johnny (Hardy) to rethink their position in the group.

The film also stars Michael Shannon, Mike Faist, Boyd Holbrook, and Norman Reedus, but the first trailer mostly focuses on Butler, Comer, and Hardy — and their accents. Butler’s not quite back in Elvis mode, but he could be getting there. Meanwhile, Comer is making a meal out of an accent that sounds part Midwest-part New York, and Hardy opts for a higher-pitched voice that truly defies convention. Between this cast, these accents, and all those vintage bikes, what more could you want?

The Bikeriders hits theaters Dec. 1.
