The Men Who Stare at Goats Trailer

Overture Films has debuted the official trailer for George Clooney's The Men Who Stare at Goats today, directed by Clooney's long-time producer and friend Grant Heslov. I know this would be something special, I just knew it. I kept hearing about it and the great cast they had and everything, but I hadn't seen anything from it. I was waiting to be surprised at its debut up in Toronto next month, but then this trailer popped up online yesterday and now the entire internet is buzzing about it! It really looks hilarious and just so damn entertaining in so many ways. I won't say anything more besides that you need to watch this, right now!

The Men Who Stare at Goats is directed by former actor and producer Grant Heslov, of only the comedy Par 6 previously and some episodes of "Unscripted". The screenplay was written by Peter Straughan, of Sixty Six and How to Lose Friends & Alienate People previously. This is based on Jon Ronson's book of the same name. The film was produced independently and will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. Overture Films will be bringing The Men Who Stare at Goats to limited theaters starting on November 6th later this year.

    "Well the hooker thing is definitly a lie" I'm sold.
  • IK!
    When I first read this synopsis last year I thought it sounded absolutely terrible. After this trailer though, I'm pretty into this. I'll definitely be checking it out.
  • Ripper
    "Well, the Hooker thing is definitely a Lie." Just Classic, I will be there opening night.

  • Quanah
    I'm so glad there's a film out there that looks nothing like anything else, and to top it off, it looks hilarious.
  • dom
    Looks kinda original, looks like the actors are having a lot of fun and ewan looks on top form.
  • Who knew that some mullet wearing chowderhead on Roseanne and the Facts of Life would become such a phenomenal actor who makes all these amazing movies? Clooney is awesome and I'm now officially stoked as eff to check this out.
  • Jaf
    they keep talking about Jedi mind tricks I'm hoping Ewan does some self-referential Obi-Wan thing in the movie
  • JustinWhy
    #16 I agree. It definitely looks like something different for a change and looks like everyone involved really had a good time with the movie.
  • jjjjuuuunnnn
    It's look funny,like a Coen Bros. movie.
  • Kamish
    Can't wait, makes me think of Burn After Reading meets Spies Like Us...
  • Sam
    This looks like it will CAN be awesome!
  • whomever
  • Marty
    Well the trailer made me laugh. Great looking cast, and looks like a fun story.
  • Rick
    I'm with #4
  • Syphous
    Nice! Looks great! Hope they make some Jedi jokes at Ewan McGregor's expense since it's already got the setup.
  • Jon Johnson
    ^#4. This looks RAD and AWESOME.
  • bracomadar
    It's like "The Dude" joins the Army :) What's scary is the website name. It's, which they had to add the "movie" part at the end. This leads me to believe that was already taken...and I really don't want to find out what THAT website is all about O_o
  • OCP
    looks great
  • beavis4play
    this could be good..............but, it might be they just showed the best parts in this trailer and the movie itself won't be that great. i don't think i'll see this in the theatre; but, i'll put it on my netflix save list.
  • harrison
    i laughed the whole trailer, just made the list of must sees
  • kitano0
    Wished Clooney had directed it...I know, work the guy to death, but he really is a good director!
  • Jonathan Kemp
    I love Jon Ronson, and this book has a very interesting story. I'm sure this film will be good, but will people PLEASE stop giving Ewan McGregor parts with foreign accents. I can't take him seriously anymore. I think it's since he's done the long way round/down that I've not been able to watch any of his films without noticing how he pronounces everything
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Looks awesome. What a fantastic cast! I like that Clooney's character uses the term Jedi Warrior when he's talking to "Obi Wan". Yes, call me a nerd. =P If the movie is half as funny as the trailer it will be amazing. So, hopefully this wasn't just a compilation of the movies best moments.
  • Xerxex
    Utterly fantastic!
  • harrison
    also, looking at the pic of clooney, he'd make a good hitler stand in if they trimmed his mustache up right
  • yes
    looks really good
  • Cody
    Wow honestly looks like comedy of the yea just very original and an awesome cast...wish it wasnt limited theaters.
  • Cody
    Also I hope they do a something like... Clonney: Im a jedi warrior Mcgregor: Yeah I was one of those once Clooney:?! 'weird Clooney eyebrow raise' CUT!
  • Mike
    Let's hope Bridges finally gets his long overdue Oscar!
  • Magellan
    This looks....ok. But it's not that great. I didn't laugh once. Strange that (based on the responses here) people are practically falling over themselves to praise this? Clooney ran over the guy in the desert, just as he was saying "we're here to help" - gee, who didn't see that coming? Or the one at the end, where Bridges rushes to deny the charges, only to....not deny *all* the charges. Again, no surprise. It's the same dead-obvious punchline you get at the end of an Alvin & The Chipmunks trailer. Not saying the movie doesn't look interesting, and might be funny when see the whole thing. But based on the trailer, it doesn't look hilarious.
  • Xerxex
    thanks for bringing us down Magellan, we were all having fun praising it.
  • Magellan
    Oh I'm not saying it's bad. It might turn out to be the funniest film of all time. It's a dream cast, for sure. Just, based on the trailer, it didn't do it for me. Elsewhere, personally I thought Avatar looked alright :/ What can ya do? My small criticism of this, is a lot more polite than the spew being hurled at Avatar :)
  • Xerxex
    then I'm sorry for my snappy comment, and I get your Avatar comment, that warranted. Who knows maybe this will wow you!
  • Felix
    Looks funny, and they've collected quite alot of good actors for it - I'd watch it for sure.
  • mike
    looks dumb and its not true, lol. the only people who are allowed to grow their hair out of regulations in uniforms are navy seals when they are in a war zone.
  • me
    Pure comedy!
  • David Banner
    no#28, contains trojans, adware, ect. You are right, you don't want to go there
  • Lando
    hahahah!!!! "I like that Clooney's character uses the term Jedi Warrior when he's talking to "Obi Wan". Yes, call me a nerd" - damn!!!! I didnt think about that one! loll........ this looks funny as hell!!!!! #46 not true!!!
  • Metatasian
    What the hell are you guys smoking? This looks film looks SHIT! is it a comedy? drama? action? whatever it is it looks silly and the jokes in the trailer were not funny.
  • Oh hell yes...sign me up!!! Gave me the same side splitting laughs that the Hangover trailer and The Informant trailer gave me...I think this'll be a slice of fried gold!! Let's just hope this isn't misrepresented like Burn After Reading was...
  • Jonnythan
    I'm with #50. I can't believe so many people think this looks good. The only thing remotely funny was the hooker line, and even that was predictable.
  • pipo
  • Xerxex
    hat naysayers fuck off, this is FUNNY!!!!!!!!.
  • Can't wait to see this! Incredibly amazing!
  • Ross
    Any one who can use a song from "Boston" in the trailer, has got my vote ... :)
  • hahaha... exactly #56 Ross... right with you on that ... hahaha... looks like fun
  • DoomCanoe
    the cast sells me hope the story turns out amazing!
  • DiR3ct
    YES!!!!!! can't wait.
  • Luffy
    this looks great!! go jedi!!
  • Fisherr
    looks really awesome, nice song at the end.
  • Ariel
    #46 You should think before you speak. You should also get off that Navy S.E.A.L.'s dick you're on. If you've ever been in a war zone you would know that the list of people allowed to do that is much more vast than your pathetic Navy S.E.A.L. CA, Delta Force, Pretty much every special forces team and let's not forget those people with profiles for shaving. I'm also willing to bet that you've never seen a uniformed secret service agent running around in full uniform minus his patches. Get a life. That would require you to swallow that spunk and step out of the house.
