The heist comedy "Logan Lucky" marks Steven Soderbergh's return to the director's chair after a four-year hiatus. The last film he directed was the 2013 biopic "Behind the Candelabra".

The film stars Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Riley Keough as three siblings who decide to pull off a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway during the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race on Memorial Day weekend. The ensemble cast also includes Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Seth MacFarlane, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, Hilary Swank, Macon Blair and Farrah Mackenzie.

"Logan Lucky" opened in theaters on August 18th, 2017 and received mostly positive reviews, with most of the praise directed at Soderbergh's direction and the pitch-perfect cast.

The director attempted a new distribution model that aimed to give directors more creative control by cutting out studios and get the money directly to the film itself. Distribution was handled by Soderbergh's own Fingerprint Releasing and the film's $29 million budget was raised by selling off foreign distribution rights, while the prints and advertising costs were covered through a deal with Amazon. The model wasn't quite a big hit as the film opened with only $7.6 million, while Soderbergh said that a $15 million debut would be needed in order to considered as a success. The film grossed another $4.2 million in its second weekend. A major reason for the film's failure to take off might have been Soderbergh's decision to hold back most of the film's advertising until right before its release, which seemed like an effective method, but didn't really pay off in the end.
