A&E Networks ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ Trailer: “Don’t Mess With Bonnie and Clyde”

A&E, History and Lifetime are coming together this December to simultaneously telecast the two-night event, Bonnie & Clyde, a retelling of the infamous outlaw lovers. Now we have our first look at stars Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) and Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) in action in the first trailer.

However, having seen the trailer, the verdict is still very much out on whether or not Bonnie & Clyde will be a fun romp, a Lifetime style romance or a dud. The editing is artful, and the sultry version of “Bang, Bang” resonates, but Grainger and Hirsch have big shoes to fill thanks to the mesmerizing performances by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty in the 1967 film of the same name. Watch the trailer below. What do you think of your first look at Bonnie & Clyde?

Bonnie & Clyde airs Sunday, December 8th and Monday, December 9th at 9/8c each night on A&E, History and Lifetime.
