The Mule Trailer

"I didn't deserve forgiveness…" Warner Bros has debuted the first official trailer for Clint Eastwood's new film The Mule, which has been scheduled for release in December of this year. This is Eastwood's second film this year, following The 15:17 to Paris earlier this year. And he also stars in this one. Eastwood plays a 90-year-old horticulturist and WWII veteran who is surprisingly caught transporting $3 million worth of cocaine through Michigan for a Mexican drug cartel. The full cast includes Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Peña, Dianne Wiest, Andy Garcia, plus Alison Eastwood, Taissa Farmiga, Ignacio Serricchio, Loren Dean, and Eugene Cordero. I like the cold opening to this trailer, makes it thrilling right away. This looks quite good, at least the story does. Might be interested in watching this one.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Clint Eastwood's The Mule, direct from YouTube:

The Mule Poster

Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him. The Mule is directed by veteran actor/filmmaker Clint Eastwood, of the films Gran Torino, Invictus, Hereafter, J. Edgar, Jersey Boys, American Sniper, and Sully most recently. The screenplay is written by Nick Schenk. WB will release Eastwood's The Mule in theaters starting December 14th this fall.

Clint still making great films...

I don't think that will end well for him. Looks good though. It's a bit depressing seeing him as a frail old man these days. Damn you, natural aging process! Good thing that won't happen to me.

Yeah? What's the secret @grimjob:disqus?

Eternal youth baby! Sure, I'm pushing 40 now, but I'm sure I'll die in car wreck long before I get old.

Wait till U get past 50, you will be begging for as many more days as possible

Maybe I'll take up a heroin habit and just forget my age. Then I'll go for a drive...

That's the plan eh? Pulling a Paul Walker? =/ (too soon?)

THE_RAW_ on Oct 5, 2018


I respect it, never too soon. I laughed, so, well played. But I might be a piece of shit, so I guess you never know.

I still think he looks badass for this age and I admire the fact that he is willing to put himself in front of a camera.. Fakin love the man's work, not so much his personal life!! Last scene in that trailer steals it.. All the way in on this one !!

Tester on Oct 4, 2018


Oh I'm glad he's still doing it, just reminds me that the day will come when he's not around, and sooner rather than later. But yeah, he's still got that damn grimace, still a badass!

Can't wait to see it.

Wow. Looks really intense. Amazing Eastwood is still cranking out quality work at his age. Pretty admirable.

Maybe by design ?

Tester on Oct 4, 2018


That's called the Denis Villeneuve touch.

tarek on Oct 5, 2018


I was being sarcastic Bo. ;D Denis Villeneuve movies are almost all use wached out cold palette

tarek on Oct 5, 2018


Looks great! I am pleasantly surprised at Eastwood's career. Not sterling, but quite good.

DAVIDPD on Oct 4, 2018


Uhh, yep! I'll be there watching, huckleberry!

Whichhalfofthewit on Oct 4, 2018


Yeah? What's the secret grimjob?

When not pursuing his little ideological silliness, Clint still might have a chance to make a good film. Maybe ...

Lost any interest in Clint Eastwood works since he supported Trump.

tarek on Oct 5, 2018


Honestly at this stage in his career I think it would behoove Mr. Eastwood to stick to being strickly behind the camera from now on. I'm beyond tired of seeing this decrypted grumpy old man stitck of his. He's a good enough filmmaker where he shouldn't feel the need to star in his own films anymore.

JohnDoeB on Oct 7, 2018


Looks intense. I'm getting Breaking Bad vibes with Eastwood-touch. I feel like the trailer showed a tad too much, though... maybe it's that last shot.
