Ever since Warner Bros. announced last week that Clint Eastwood’s The Mule will see the light in December this year, we have been expecting the studio to start the marketing promptly and cut something together to go in front of Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born this weekend. Now, it looks like the studio has done just that, as the first (and full-length) trailer for Eastwood’s latest has been rated overnight by Consumer Protection BC. As always, we will be sure to update this with the online launch date and the trailer itself when they arrive!
Earl Stone is a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. After being assigned a menacing handler, Stone also attracts attention from DEA agent Colin Bates.
Starring Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Michael Peña and Laurence Fishburne, the film is released in the U.S. on December 14, with a UK date to be announced.
