First Trailer for Zach Braff ‘Going in Style’ Remake
New Line Cinema has debuted the first trailer for Going in Style, a remake of the 1979 heist comedy of the same name starring George Burns, Lee Strasberg, and Art Carney.
The Zach Braff-directed redo stars Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin. Scripted by Theodore Melfi (Hidden Figures), it follows a trio of aging friends who lose their pensions, and get the idea to rob the banks that failed them.
Also starring Joey King, Christopher Lloyd, Ann-Margret, Matt Dillon, Peter Serafinowicz, and John Ortiz, the upcoming caper film is set to open on April 7, 2017. Check out the trailer and poster below.
Fans of geriatric comedies will no doubt find some comfort here, and for everyone else, with those three Oscar-winning actors this at least promises to be a little more fun than Zach Braff’s usual stuff.
Oscar winners Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”), Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules,” “Hannah and Her Sisters”) and Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty, in director Zach Braff’s comedy “Going in Style.”
Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.
The film also stars two-time Oscar nominee Ann-Margret (“Tommy,” “Carnal Knowledge”) as Annie, a grocery cashier who’s been checking Al out in more ways than one. Joey King (“Wish I Was Here”) stars as Joe’s whip-smart granddaughter, Brooklyn; with Oscar nominee Matt Dillon (“Crash”) as FBI Agent Hamer; and Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future” trilogy) as the guys’ lodge buddy, Milton. John Ortiz (“Silver Linings Playbook”) also stars as Jesus, a man of unspecified credentials who agrees to show the guys the ropes, and Peter Serafinowicz (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Joe’s former son-in-law, Murphy, whose pot clinic connections may finally prove useful.
