Trailer Park: SXSW Film Day 3

Three picks (and clips) from today's screenings

South by Southwest is all about making the most of your time, so here's a multitasking idea for you: Settle in with a breakfast taco and study up on some of today's choices. For the duration of the Fest, we're posting a few trailers for the day's films to help you make some of those tough decisions.

This is … the Trailer Park.

But when bounty hunters and former snipers come onto the scene, the boys learn there might be more adventure than they bargained for.
