Clint Eastwood Runs Some Drugs in First ‘The Mule’ Trailer
Warner Bros. has released the first official trailer for Clint Eastwood’s latest outing The Mule, which marks his first time acting and directing since Gran Torino in 2008.
Eastwood plays the real life of World War II veteran who becomes a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. Bradley Cooper co-stars as the DEA agent chasing this elderly new drug mule down, and Laurence Fishburne plays a special agent. The full cast includes Michael Peña, Dianne Wiest, Andy Garcia, Alison Eastwood, Taissa Farmiga, Ignacio Serricchiom, Loren Dean and Eugene Cordero.
The Mule is set to hit theaters on December 14, 2018. Check out the first trailer for yourself below.
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.
