Arkansas (2020 Movie) Official Trailer - Vince Vaughn, Liam Hemsworth, Clark Duke.
Kyle Ribb (Liam Hemsworth) is a drug dealer working for a man only known as Frog (Vince Vaughn). He is "promoted" to Arkansas to move wholesale with a talkative and overconfident Swin Horn (Clark Duke). While trucking product to Corpus Christi, the rope holding down the flatbed tarp breaks, and they are forced to stop. Surprised as they run into a ranger named Bright (John Malkovich) who offers to help, they panic. The ranger reveals that he works for Frog and that both Kyle and Swin are going to work under him at the park. They are assigned trailers to live in and are ordered to keep a low profile.
They begin work trafficking drugs to different states in the South. Swin meets a woman, Johnna (Eden Brolin), and starts dating her. Johnna takes Swin along to sell off her obsolete gym equipment, which the pawnshop owner refuses to buy. At night, while it rains, Kyle, Swin, and Bright drink together as their new orders come. The orders came from a woman called Her (Vivica A. Fox) who lives across the lake in a houseboat. They are to go to Castor in Louisiana now to hand-deliver the product and also collect the payment. After following them back to the park, Nick (Chandler Duke), the grandson of the buyer, tortures Bright for the money, and they both end up killing each other. When they discover their bodies, Kyle drives over to Castor, kills the buyer, and buries Bright in the park. Swin wants to run while Kyle explains that running will only end up with them being dead. They unsuccessfully try to contact Colin (Chris Mullinax), a middleman, to pass up the word.
Back in 1985, Frog, who is revealed to be the pawnshop owner from the park, sells bootlegged tapes from his pawnshop in West Memphis before beginning moving drugs. After killing the middleman, he escapes out of West Memphis to Pine Bluff and starts working for Almond (Michael Kenneth Williams) who gives him weekly supplies to sell. One day, they go and see the middleman. Dissatisfied with his payout, Frog sets Almond up and gets him arrested. He explains to him that he is taking over, and he's learned a lot from him and amicably asks for the middleman. After some time when the middleman wants out of the game, he sells his wholesaler to Frog.
