Warner Bros. has released the new trailer for The Mule, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. The film finds Eastwood playing an elderly man who is alone and on the verge of losing his house. In order to fix his broken relationships and earn enough money to keep his house, he has to take on a new job, which turns out to be a dangerous one. Unbeknownst to him, he’s a mule for the drug cartel, and now, he will become the target of an FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) who is hot on his trail.
In addition to releasing their new fall primetime lineup on Wednesday, CBS revealed five trailers for several of their new shows. And you are in luck! We have pulled them all together here for you. Several of these will definitely be finding their way onto my television, no doubt about it.
A most peculiar drama, indeed. As I watched The Odd Life of Timothy Green I kept thinking of how rare it is to find a touching, genuine piece of film that literally grows on you. Nothing especially grand in scale, just a simple fantasy set in reality. Director Peter Hedges has fashioned a sweet tale with sensibility, one that despite inspiring some eye-rolling and struggling to maintain a cohesive structure, manages to breathe kindness and spirit.
Disney has surely expanded its range in films in recent years, in terms of tone, and I suppose soon enough one would arrive in the form of a married couple who cannot have a child. Jim and Cindy Green, played with warmth by the duo of Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Alias star Jennifer Garner, have almost given up hope on having a child of their very own. In a flash-forward scene toward the opening, the pair shares with an adoption agency of why they are suitable parents. They tell their miraculous story, of their short and certainly odd experience with a 10-year-old boy who enters their lives.
