The upcoming crime drama "Dragged Across Concrete" is bringing us into the criminal underworld.

Lionsgate released the film's trailer on Thursday, showing Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn as a pair of police detectives-turned-criminals. The two cops find themselves suspended from work after a video reveals them using strong-arm tactics, leading them to make questionable choices. To make money, they turn to some very illegal activities.

"We have the skills and the right to acquire proper compensation," says Gibson's character, Detective Brett Ridgeman, in the trailer.

And acquire compensation they do, if not in a "proper" way. The trailer shows them donning masks and committing an armed robbery. Watch below.



The film is both written and directed by S. Craig Zahler. In addition to Gibson and Vaughn, it stars Jennifer CarpenterLaurie Holden, Don Johnson, Michael Jai White, Thomas Kretschmann, Tory Kittles, and Fred Melamed.

"Dragged Across Concrete" opens March 22.
