Miles Teller is set to star as boxer Vinny Pazienza in the forthcoming biopic Bleed for This. However, that's not the only film based on a true story he has releasing this year; joining Jonah Hill, the pair will star in War Dogs, which has a new trailer and poster.
Director Todd Phillips, who has brought us The Hangover Trilogy, and the likes of Due Date and Starsky & Hutch, has a knack for making films about friends that get in way over their head in something only to have to deal with the consequences. War Dogs is no exception to this. Although, what makes this film different is that it's based on a true story about David and Efraim, two twenty-somethings that land themselves a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm the Afghan Military. Here's the new trailer for the film, from Warner Bros:
I'm a big fan of both Teller and Hill as actors. This trailer shows us more of the character interaction an dynamic between btoh of these actors and their characters. The pair look like they have good chemistry here and the premise for this film is very intriguing. If there's one thing Phillips knows how to do, it's create ton, and War Dogs looks like the right balance of both intensity and fun. The latest poster also captures the relationship between the pair too: Hill as the rambunctious, callous one and Teller as the more cautious, careful one.
Here's the film's official synopsis:
Based on a true story, “War Dogs” follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a 300 million dollar deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.
