The suspenseful and gritty sneak peek features its stars Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Rachel McAdams either heading into trouble or getting into trouble themselves.

"Sometimes your worst self is your best self," Vaughn's criminal and entrepreneur Frank Semyon says.

Farrell's detective Ray Velcoro adds: "My strong suspicion is — we get the world we deserve."

Their comments are combined with eerie music, an emotional McAdams (detective Ani Bezzerides), and, yes, a shirtless Kitsch (cop Paul Woodrugh).
