Going in Style Trailer Starring Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin


After all the controversy and backlash surrounding Zach Braff’s decision to crowdfund his last film, Wish I Was Here, he has apparently taken a much safer route for his next project behind the camera. Going in Style is a studio gig through and through, a remake of a 1979 film of the same name that was directed by Martin Brest (Beverly Hills Cop, Midnight Run) and starred George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. The plot revolves around three seniors (Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin) who are struggling to live off of Social Security and decide they have nothing to lose by robbing a bank. It might be just another cheap geriatric comedy in the vein of The Bucket List or Last Vegas, but it does appear to have some minor social commentary and the trailer looks a little better than I expected. Going in Style hits theatres on April 7th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    The older I get, the more I like movies about old people. By the way, couldn’t find a link to the trailer here…is it me?

  • Lori Cerny

    No, it’s not you, the trailer isn’t there.

    I liked the original film, but today’s violence between the police and anyone who isn’t a cop, makes this film seem cringe worthy.

    On the positive side, the cast is reliable.

    Oops, the embed should be fixed now. Let me know if you guys are still having issues.

  • Matt the Kiwi

    All fixed. If they’re aiming for social commentary then clearly they should have Morgan Freeman shot by the police while they ALL have their hands up. Roll credits.
