Clint Eastwood’s The Mule Trailer


Clint Eastwood continues to be one of the most prolific directors working today, having put out essentially a movie a year for the past few decades now. This year he has already released The 15:17 to Paris, but just in time for awards season he has a second project hitting theatres as well. The Mule finds him back in a starring role in one of his own films for the first time since 2008’s Gran Torino and there is speculation that it could be his last. Based on the true story of an 80-year-old WWII veteran who becomes a drug runner for a Mexican cartel, the movie co-stars Bradley Cooper along with Taissa Farmiga, Michael Pena, Laurence Fishburne, Clifton Collins Jr. and Dianne Wiest. The Mule hits theatres on Dec. 14th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    First I’m hearing about this, but based on that plot description and cast this may the first Eastwood film in a while that I’m interested in.

  • MartyMcFlyJr

    I haven’t seen it but wouldn’t Trouble With the Curve be a starring role?

  • Sean

    I haven’t seen it either but I think you’re right. I missed it in his filmography because he didn’t direct it.

    Looks awesome…vintage Eastwood at his best! May think his politics are kooky/possibly dangerous?…but Eastwood is a legend when it comes to movie making! No doubt! I’m in!

  • Dirk Gently

    Movie could be improved with the addition of an Orangutan.

  • And the inclusion of this song…

    Username checks out!

  • Matt the Kiwi

    True! But to be fair, you could say that about any film (TV show, musical, restaurant meal, etc).

    Hollywood conundrum: This film turns out to be a masterpiece AND then Clint goes ahead and dies during opening week. This would normally guarantee a posthumous ‘Best Director’ award for such a screen legend BUT we are talking about a white, male, straight, occasional Republican supporter (even though he’s self proclaimed neither left or right). I for one hope he wins while he’s still alive just so we can watch him give his acceptance speech to an empty chair.
