Warner Bros. Pictures has released the official trailer for the Clint Eastwood directed upcoming crime drama The Mule, also starring Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born, American Sniper) and Taissa Farmiga (The Nun).
In The Mule, Clint 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 will arrive in theaters on December 14, 2018.
Talk about a stunning first look at a film that I had kind of shrugged off when it was originally announced. Mainly because of the fact that Clint’s last directorial effort, 15:17 to Paris. Was an absolutely disaster of a film, unwatchable. All that aside, this film looks incredible, and potentially another potential hit film for the legend that is Clint Eastwood.
