The trailer for the Matt Damon and John Krasinski penned Promised Land has hit the Internet.

Damon and Krasinksi also star in the film, about a natural gas company salesman (Damon) trying to convince farmers in a small town to sell their land for fracking (a complicated term that basically means extracting natural gas and oil) rights. Krasinski plays a farmer wary of Damon’s pitch. The movie also features Frances McDormand and Hal Holbrook. Watch the video below!

Promised Land recently moved its release date up to Dec. 28, for an awards-qualifying run in theaters.


Update: We’re idiots! It’s not “drilling.” Apologies.
