Watch: Pacino, Walken & Arkin in First Trailer for 'Stand Up Guys'
We just go our first look at the action comedy Stand Up Guys following Al Pacino and Christopher Walken in the story of two aging criminals, one of whom has been hired to kill his friend. In one last night of debacuhery, they hit up a brothel, steal cars, evade the police but must also face choices they've made over the years. Now we have the first trailer for the film from director Fisher Stevens, and it looks like this could be a nice little dark comedy with some heart, especially when Alan Arkin shows up. Pacino hasn't really been on top of his game as of late, so maybe this will redeem the veteran actor a bit. Watch the trailer!
Here's the first trailer for Fisher Stevens Stand Up Guys originally from Yahoo:
Fisher Stevens (producer of The Cove) directs Stand Up Guys from a script by Noah Haidle. Val (Al Pacino) is released from prison after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to give up one of his close criminal associates. His best friend Doc (Christopher Walken) is there to pick him up, and the two soon reteam with another old pal, Hirsch (Alan Arkin). But one of the friends is keeping a dangerous secret, and his time to find an acceptable alternative is running out. The film is expected in theaters on January 11th next year.
You know what people, this movie, at least to me, looks delightful... Just looks like a trip down memory lane with a little pop. This looks like it's got a little bit of RED and I guess a lot of people can relate to a story like this since we all have some memories that we still embrace and/or wish we could re-live once more. Throw in a trio of awesome oldtimers like Arkin, Pacino and Walken and you have yourself a sweet-ass friday night!

This actually looks nice... more drama than action comedy that I thought this movie was described as.

Damn, I'm really impressed. This looks like its going to have just the right amount of comedy, action, and sentiment. Perfect casting, cannot wait!

I'm just glad Walken is back doing Hollywood heavyweight movies with guys like Al Pacino. Christopher Walken doesn't the credit that guys like DiNiro and Pacino get when he's a top tier guy.
