Electric Slide trailer features first look at Christopher Lambert as a bad guy

Christopher Lambert features in “Electric Slide”
The film is due for release at theaters and on VOD in April

Popular ’80s action hero Christopher Lambert, best known for his role as the Immortal Scotsman in the Highlander films, returns to the big screen next month.

Lambert plays the villain in director Tristan Patterson’s true-life crime story Electric Slide. The neon-dripping, gunpowder-fueled period piece pits the scene-chewing movie legend against up-and-comer Jim Sturgess, who plays the lead role.

Sturgess (Across the Universe, 21, One Day) plays Eddie Dodson, a Melrose Avenue antiques dealer who decided to become a bank robber. Dodson drove to the banks in a black ’63 Ford Galaxy LTD. He dressed up like an elegant criminal. He made mix tapes to listen to on his getaways. And in only nine months, Eddie robbed 64 banks – more than anyone has robbed before or since.

Patricia Arquette, Isabel Lucas, Chloe Sevigny, and Entourage‘s Rhys Coiro also feature in the movie.

The French actor recently finished shooting the Mata Hari spy drama TV miniseries, and next appears in Joel & Ethan Coen’s Hail, Caesar.

In a recent interview, Lambert noted that he had been pigeonholed after Highlander.

“Now I don’t want to feel cornered as an actor,” he says, “because I’ve got a wider range than that. Even somebody like Sylvester Stallone, when he did Cop Land, proved he could do something else, without forgetting the most famous movie he ever made was Rocky.”

Lambert’s welcome appearance in Paragon Releasing’s Electric Slide can be checked out from April 3 at theaters and On Demand.
