Putting a dark spin on modern romance, debut director Fredrik Bond’s upcoming film Charlie Countryman tells the story of a young man (Shia LaBeouf) who careens through the turmoils of violence, underground crime, and mental instability in order to protect the woman he has come to identify as his one true love. These new exclusive images from the movie, which debuted at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, showcase the vicious nature of the story, which stars the likes of Mads Mikkelsen, Evan Rachel Wood, and Rupert Grint opposite LaBeouf.

Offering up a hint of the violence and psychological mayhem that we might find once the film releases, the Charlie Countryman images show a new side to actors like LaBeouf and Grint (the latter of whom we know best as Ron Weasley) and more of the usual darkness from Wood and that horrifying Mikkelsen. Check out the pics, and catch Charlie Countryman in theaters and on VOD on Nov. 15.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
