Margot Robbie & Tina Fey Cover War in 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' Trailer
"I've seen people with actual experience make bad decisions." Paramount has debuted a trailer for the new comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, based on the memoirs of Kim Barker, a TV news journalist who ended up covering the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Tina Fey plays Kim Barker, and when she gets there she meets one of the only other women covering war, played by Margot Robbie. The cast includes Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina, Josh Charles, Sheila Vand and Christopher Abbott, which is an impressive line-up for this film. This looks better than I was expecting, and I appreciate that the comedy is a couple notches above the kind of dumb humor Hollywood usually puts in. Give it a look below.
Here's the first trailer for Glenn Ficarra & John Requa's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, from Para's YouTube:
