Watch Pacino, Walken, and Arkin in the Trailer for ‘Stand Up Guys’
You would think that any movie with Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin — a trinity of beloved, Oscar-winning actors — in its cast couldn’t be too terrible. And yet the trailer for Stand Up Guys looks kind of like a cross between a less memorable episode of The Sopranos and The Bucket List. The threadbare premise isn’t doing them any favors: Pacino plays a man who gets out of prison after a few decades only to discover that there’s a hit out on him — and that his closest pal (Walken) has been hired to deliver the kill by 10am the next morning. So they head out on the town for one last hurrah, a night of debauchery that includes stealing cars, doing drugs, and rescuing Alan Arkin from his recliner. Click through to watch the trailer, and let us know in the comments if you think we’re being too harsh — and if you wish Christopher Walken was your best friend.
