First Trailer for Philip Seymour Hoffman's 'God's Pocket' (Video)

Mad Men star John Slattery's feature-length directorial debut, God's Pocket -- starring the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman -- has dropped its first trailer.

Based on the novel of the same name by Pete Dexter, the film centers on a gritty blue-collar neighborhood where a construction "accident" leads to the burial of a body and the truth.

The independent film made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in mid-January, just two weeks before Hoffman died of an overdose. The actor was at Sundance to promote the film, in which he stars opposite Richard Jenkins, Christina Hendricks and John Turturro. Slattery directed from an adapted script by Alex Metcalf.

IFC Films will release the movie in select theaters on May 9 before making the film available on VOD a week later.
