After earning positive reviews at the Cannes Film Festival, a new trailer for Robert Pattinson’s Good Time has arrived online.

Just as his former Twilight costar Kristen Stewart made a name for herself post-franchise with smaller films like Certain Women and Personal Shopper, the latest Good Time trailer looks to add another notch to Pattinson’s indie cred. Directed by filmmaking duo Josh and Benny Safdie, the film is a tale of two brothers: one named Nick (played by Safdie), who’s mentally impaired and locked away in prison for their bank robbery scheme; the other named Connie (Pattinson), who’s racing against time to get him out.

The fast-paced footage features a dazzling color palette and prickling music fit for something straight out of the ’80s — or straight out of the opening of Stranger Things. With a cast boosted by Lennice Webster, Buddy Duress, Barkhad Abdi, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, Good Time is the latest offering from A24 Films, the dynamite indie distributor behind Moonlight, 20th Century Women, and It Comes At Night.
