Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin are: wise guys, tough guys, good guys or just a stand up guys? We’ll soon find that out ’cause Fisher Stevens‘ movie opens in two weeks! Until then, here’s the first TV spot and another (Russian) poster for the whole thing, hope you’ll enjoy! After all – they don’t make ’em like they used to…
Stevens directed this action comedy from Noah Haidle‘s script which centers on a retired gangsters who reunite for one epic last night.
The film premiered at the Chicago International Film Festival this October, and just in case you forgot – the film was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song (you can see the official video for Jon Bon Jovi‘s Not Running Anymore right here at our site!)
Beside Pacino, Walken & Arkin, Stand Up Guys also stars Julianna Margulies, Vanessa Ferlito and Mark Margolis, and as we said – the movie is set to open on February 1st, 2013.
Val is released from prison after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to give up one of his close criminal associates. His best friend Doc is there to pick him up, and the two soon re-team with another old pal, Hirsch. Their bond is as strong as ever, and the three reflect on freedom lost and gained, loyalties ebbed and flowed, and days of glory gone by. And despite their age, their capacity for mayhem is still very much alive and well – bullets fly as they make a hilariously valiant effort to compensate for the decades of crime, drugs and sex they’ve missed. But one of the friends is keeping a dangerous secret- he’s been put in an impossible quandary by a former mob boss, and his time to find an acceptable alternative is running out. As the sun rises on the guys’ legendary reunion, their position becomes more and more desperate and they finally confront their past once and for all.
