Jonah Hill & Miles Teller in New Trailer for Todd Phillips' 'War Dogs'
"This isn't about being pro-war, this is about being pro-money!" Warner Bros has unleashed the second trailer for a comedy called War Dogs (previously known as Arms and the Dudes), starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as two kids who become drug runners selling weapons to various governments (including the US military). The full cast includes Bradley Cooper, Ana de Armas and Barry Livingston. The first trailer for this promised a hilarious and ridiculous comedy, and this new trailer ups the ante with even more craziness. I like the way this trailer is put together, the opening is engaging, the snap cuts are effective, the footage is amusing, great music, I'm totally sold on this movie. I just hope it's as funny as it looks. Fire it up.
Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Todd Phillips' War Dogs, direct from WB's YouTube:
Based on a true story, War Dogs follows two friends in their early 20s (Jonah Hill and Miles Teller) living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a 300 million dollar deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government. Todd Phillips (of Road Trip, Old School, Starsky & Hutch, School for Scoundrels, The Hangover I-III, Due Date) directs from a screenplay written by Phillips, Stephen Chin and Jason Smilovic. Warner Bros will release War Dogs starting on August 19th later this summer. Are you in?
