Trying to reverse a family curse, brothers Jimmy (Channing Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Adam Driver) set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Jimmy also recruits demolition expert Joe Bang to help them break into the track's underground system. Complications arise when a mix-up forces the crew to pull off the heist during a popular NASCAR race while also trying to dodge a relentless FBI agent.

The production shot at Charlotte Motor Speedway during the actual NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 and the Bank of America 500, as well as at Atlanta Motor Speedway. In a fun twist, six NASCAR stars pop up in non-driver cameo roles in the film. The film also stars Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, David Denman, Macon Blair, Jack Quaid, and Brian Gleeson. 

“Independently financed and distributed by Soderbergh, Logan Lucky is a magnificent movie that comes disguised as a modest one. Or, as I like to call it, a Joe Bang.” - Time

“‘Logan Lucky’ is a terrific movie. That’s a matter of skill, and maybe also of luck. But mostly it’s a matter of generosity.” - New York Times

“This is a brilliantly constructed, whip-smart, and laugh-out-loud-funny romp from a filmmaker whose precision and craft is nearly unparalleled. It’s hard to think of a movie this year that has been as singularly delightful, one that, with each passing moment, reveals something charming or odd or real.” - The Playlist

"The film hits a truly unexpected high when it introduces Daniel Craig's bank-vault expert Joe Bang, an imprisoned force of comic fury whose unhinged performance elevates 'Logan Lucky' above any notions of genre shtick. Good luck keeping that one locked up." - The Globe and Mail

"It's a terrific, twisty, funny-as-hell crime flick about so-called hicks who decide that making America great again starts right at home." - Rolling Stone

"'Logan Lucky' is great fun and one of the most purely entertaining movies of the year." - Chicago Sun-Times

"'Logan Lucky' is satisfying on the simplest of levels, but if you peel back the layers it becomes evermore rewarding." - CineVue

"Soderbergh has made the sort of breezy, unpretentious, just-for-fun film that scarcely exists anymore, one almost anyone could enjoy." - The Hollywood Reporter

"'Logan Lucky' is both a Robin Hood fantasy and a uniquely Soderberghian lark, an ensemble comedy that’s simultaneously effervescent and cerebral." - Slant Magazine
