First 'War Dogs' Trailer Has Jonah Hill and Miles Teller Running Guns
Formerly known as Arms and the Dudes, the first trailer for the dark comedy War Dogs has just arrived. The Hangover franchise director Todd Phillips is at the helm of the film which sees two twentysomething men (Jonah Hill and Miles Teller) getting caught up in the insane world of arms dealing, only to land them in the Middle East. This looks like it's going to be a riot, something akin to The Wolf of Wall Street meets Charlie Wilson's War. Just the prospect of Jonah Hill and Miles Teller in a movie together had me sold, but this looks pretty spectacular. And hey, Bradley Cooper is in it too. Watch now!
Here's the first trailer for War Dogs from Warner Bros. Pictures:
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 directs War Dogs and Warner Bros. releases it August 19th.

Thanks! But it was just a temporary thing while Alex was on his trip. He asked if I could help out for a few weeks by posting some trailers. I'm still writing at /Film though!

And while we're at it, also akin to and meets 'Lords of War'. Why not!

I'm torn because I can't stand Teller or Hill but I haven't not enjoyed a single movie Bradley Cooper's been in. The director DID do the Hangover trilogy and Due Date, so I guess I have to give this a chance.

Jonah Hill got morbidly obese. That's a shame. Looks funny enough in a depressing sort of way.
