The 15:17 to Paris Trailer

"Don't try and take any shortcuts. Do what you know is right." Warner Bros has debuted the first official trailer for Clint Eastwood's The 15:17 to Paris, telling a fictionalized version of the story of three men who thwarted a potential terrorist attack on a train in France in 2015. The story goes that three men confronted and subdued the attacker before he could harm more people, and they have since become heroes for their actions. The 15:17 to Paris actually stars the three real men playing themselves: Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone, along with a cast of actors including Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer, Ray Corasani, PJ Byrne, Tony Hale, and Thomas Lennon. Eastwood is really into these stories of regular American heroes, my goodness. The twist in this is using the actual men, which is kind of cool to see. Enjoy.

Here's the first official trailer for Clint Eastwood's The 15:17 to Paris, direct from WB's YouTube:

I'm intrigued! Looks like a good story/screenplay. All this occurring on a train is very symbolic of fate taking you to a given point....

Lucky they were there.

Dude. Alex. Stop putting your political opinions into your posts. "Eastwood is really into these stories of regular American heroes, my goodness." And your post "I'm not sure capitalism needs saving.." (from the trailer for the Robert Reich doc SAVING CAPITALISM). We come here to watch trailers for upcoming films to see if they can transport us away from our every day life like a good movie should. Stop.

Hey man, ease off. Go start your own movie review/preview site if you're not into what the site curator is peddling. Freedom of speech man. Everyone should be able to speak their minds, but it doesn't mean you have to agree with it.

THE_RAW_ on Dec 13, 2017


Nice try, Bo. No. It's just annoying to have invested years into a site and have to read that type of stuff unexpectedly. I actually do agree with him, but I don't wanna hear his opinions on politics when it has nothing to do with a movie review or posting about a trailer. None of us do.

Jared on Dec 13, 2017


Got it. Thanks.

Jared on Dec 13, 2017


Sorry man. Freedom of speech is of course a valuable thing. It's the most valuable thing. But I am also allowed to state my distaste for it and how everyone thinks their opinion needs to be broadcast on every platform available. This is a site I've used since I was a kid and I don't wanna read about political bias when it serves no real purpose. Let's talk about movies. That was all I was asking.

Jared on Dec 13, 2017


I completely agree everyone is entitled to free speech. And I'm going to reiterate Bo's point of it being Alex's platform, so why should he be chastised about it? And I feel you on the "political fatigue" as I'm right there with you, but don't criticize someones opinion just because you're not in the mood. If this were your site and you toted your beliefs/opinions and someone called you out on it in the same fashion, I doubt your response would be "Ya know, you're right. I SHOULDN'T BE DOING THAT ON MY SITE." Just trying to lend perspective of having the shoe on the other foot, ya dig?

THE_RAW_ on Dec 14, 2017


Well said. The bias behind Alex's intros is getting ever louder and ever clearer.

Payne by name on Dec 13, 2017


So...what are you still doing here? If you don't agree, why bother with this site? You think spouting off about his "biases" is a guaranteed way to change his mind? You think he's going to cater to your constant barrage of insults and put downs? That's not really how a dialogue works.

THE_RAW_ on Dec 14, 2017


But you could say the same for Alex. If he holds these kind of films in such contempt why does he bother to put them on his site? And please, grow a spine. It's hardly a 'constant barrage' you over dramatic snowflake.

Payne by name on Dec 15, 2017


Honestly you'd have more of an argument if he DIDN'T include them on his site per his political opinions. At least he's showing stuff that might interest other people, even though his political views might not exactly align. Also, it's a bit ironic calling me an "over dramatic snowflake" when you're the one resorting to insults/name calling and saying Alex "holds these kinds of films in SUCH contempt". Talk about being over dramatic... And you're also saying your rant over "12 Strong" isn't applicable either? You've got some serious delusions and anger in your heart, friend.

THE_RAW_ on Dec 15, 2017


Jesus, the levels of comprehension on this site are worrying. The comment on being over dramatic related to your point about a 'barrage of insults' which it clearly wasn't. But your attempt at psych-evaluation is priceless. If anyone disagrees with anyone nowadays and it immediately has to be categorised as an indication of anger, which is in turn a setup for the next accusation of hate.

Payne by name on Dec 15, 2017


Oh sorry. Completely mistook your insults as happy and friendly. I'm completely fine with having disagreements, but when you're belittle and put down someone else's opinion because it's not your own, you're incredibly arrogant or ignorant. If you're unable to see how your comments reflect that, then you're a lost cause.

THE_RAW_ on Dec 18, 2017


There are more. Should I list them for you? Would that make you feel better? Just stating my opinion. This is a site for movies. We are surrounded by political bias everywhere else. It be nice to avoid it here, even if you agree with it.

Jared on Dec 13, 2017


Kudos to the three guys taking on the attacker, but not sure it warrants a full feature film to be honest.

Lewis on Dec 13, 2017


What the fuck does? A kid that got bit by a spider for the 10th time?

ElBischoff on Dec 14, 2017


If Spidey had been rebooted outside of the MCU again I would totally agree. However I kinda liked him tied into that setting.

Lewis on Dec 14, 2017


I appreciate them using the actual guys as the actors and hopefully Eastwood crafts a good backstory. Character development is key to caring about your characters! Definitely looking forward to this on Netflix/Cable. Maybe even the theater.

THE_RAW_ on Dec 13, 2017


At some point, I started to care less and less for Eastwood films. I just see them more and more as too simplistic. This one goes in the same direction ...

shiboleth on Dec 13, 2017


Well, more and more, it looks that all he, Eastwood, does with his last films is indulging himself, as you stated already. Even more, it's like he doesn't even care anymore if someone will understand it as a propaganda. He just might want that too. A bit sad for me. Although, I think he used to make great films. I guess, nothing lasts forever. As for the guys playing themselves. Well, they probably don't understand the world of media and are taking their chances here. Which is very weird since I wonder if there might be some sequel to that. In a way that they might start some kind of new career in a film business. Wouldn't be that interesting and hilarious at the same. time? Cheers back ....

shiboleth on Dec 14, 2017


Yes, some of those insights about Eastwood seems to be pretty founded. I certainly didn't follow his career all the way, but I used to like some of his films. For some period of time, I thought he has something more artistic in his sensibility, but lately, as said, not really possible to notice that. And yes, I am aware of his political views, which I certainly don't share with him, but I was trying not to be biased by them. Looks like the opposite is the case, since Eastwood himself is just that, a biased man, who doesn't care about that (if he ever did). You say arrogant. Probably, but I also see him as a vain man and too old to change for better. I remember he had some dispute during 1970s regarding his Dirty Harry films with one of the critic, Pauline Kael. She was very critical about his films. As the time passes, I keep thinking about her reasons for that kind of film criticism and I am starting to think that she was probably right. Anyway, yes, I agree with you. Oh come on, Naomi Watts was, is and always will be great. We should never have any disagreement with that. I never had problem about that. I am only sorry if I made you angry since I probably overdid with my sort of humor. Don't worry on your side, your jesting, some good version of it, is pretty much cool and I can't be so easily 'intimidated' in that respect. Other than that, I only hope that you're doing fine. Cheers...

shiboleth on Dec 14, 2017


As for Pauline Kael all I can say that I am sorry I lived my adult life after she made her career. I heard of her only during 1990s. She must have been great. The case of Eastwood showed me just that. I remember him answering to her criticism with avoiding to say anything substantial. His answer was that there's no ideology in it whatsoever since he's just showing people for what they are. Which is obvious and intentional ignoring other people's arguments. But, as said here, we already know that about him. As for our communication, nothing's broken and nothing's wrong. It was a bit of an unintentional pause, let's move on. Adult people do that. My lack of explanation was also unintentional since I didn't want to impose myself. I am sorry to hear about your problems and I hope you have the means to overcome it in a best way possible. This world can be really mean to aging people (and to many others). And I will never understand the meanness of that kind. Of course, you have learned some of the lessons, as you mentioned, in life and with people, But I hope that your current situation will end for you just without some anxious morale and with some good resolution. Which would be the real award for your spirit, Wish you luck, Bo...

I felt the same way around Gran Torino. I heard an interview with an actor (can't remember who) that said he was really surprised on set when Clint would do one take and move on, the actor was like "aren't we going to try it again?" and Clint would say "why? we got it..." I get the feeling that rushed vibe contributes to the detached passionless style he's been doing these past couple of films.

cuckoozey on Dec 14, 2017


I remember somebody described something like that about Space Cowboys. The guy has the routine and for a lot of people, that just seems to be enough. Besides, a lot of people is not thinking about that stuff. Yeah, he could do better with Gran Torino, I agree. But, it looks the guy has his limitations. So what, there are other good filmmakers ...

shiboleth on Dec 14, 2017


A man's gotta know his limitations...

cuckoozey on Dec 14, 2017


It looks like he's happy and confident with his. Cheers ...

shiboleth on Dec 15, 2017


These are actual guys?! Holy fuck, talk about being humble.

Matthew on Dec 13, 2017


A new super boring and crap movie by Eastwood and one of the winners of Academy in next year. every boring movie is a big chance to win Oscar.

Pincode on Dec 14, 2017


You've already seen it? How?

ElBischoff on Dec 14, 2017


Cool. At this point Eastwood is just making really glossy Hallmark movies.

DAVIDPD on Dec 14, 2017


How often is it going to happen when 3 regular fellas who've never acted, did something incredible and can actually act? This should be cool.
