The trailer for "God's Pocket" offers audiences one of their last glimpses of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, and judging by the brutal events that unfold in the video, we're in for one hell of an emotional roller coaster.

"God's Pocket" focuses on Mickey Scarpato, who's desperately trying to cover up the mysterious death of his stepson. While a construction accident is blamed, the trailer makes it clear that Mickey had something to do with the young man's demise -- and it's only a matter of time before his wife (Christina Hendricks) catches on.

Mickey's wife enlists the help of a local journalist (Richard Jenkins) to uncover the truth about her son, and as the writer digs deeper into the story, it's clear he's zeroing in on Mickey, whose extended, intensifying mental unraveling is portrayed perfectly by Hoffman.

"The working men of God's Pocket are simple men," Jenkins narrates. "They work, marry, and have children. And until recently, they die like everyone else."

Whether Jenkins is referring to Mickey or his stepson, it seems that Mickey isn't exactly safe, either.

"God's Pocket," directed by John Slattery and also starring John Turturro, opens May 9.
