The new trailer for Taylor Hackford's new film, Love Ranch, takes us to America's first legal brothel.

Various delays behind it, Love Ranch is well on its way to theaters with the online release of this new trailer. Stars Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci are both traversing familiar ground as an older woman with sex appeal and a seedy entrepreneur, respectively. They play the husband and wife owners of Nevada’s first legal brothel, circa 1970s. When a husky heavyweight boxer from South America moves in, a love triangle – probably of the tragic variety – turns their world upside down. Hackford’s previous work has included Ray and An Officer and a Gentleman.
