‘Stand Up Guys’ Trailer Pairs Al Pacino and Christopher Walken

Christopher Walken, Al Pacino
Lionsgate

Trivia: Though Al Pacino and Christopher Walken never starred opposite each other before 2013′s ‘Stand Up Guys,’ they have appeared in one movie together. That film? 2003′s ‘Gigli.’ Which sets the bar low for their new movie. The good news is that their new film looks entertaining.

Pacino stars as a man just let out of prison after a twenty eight year stint, only to be escorted around by Walken, who’s been assigned to kill Pacino by ten in the morning the next day. It looks like the two have a bit of fun in the interim. Also around are Alan Arkin and Julianna Margulies.

Here’s the synopsis:

STAND UP GUYS stars Academy Award winners Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin in a tough but touching action comedy as retired gangsters who reunite for one epic last night. Val (Al Pacino) is released from prison after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to give up one of his close criminal associates.  His best friend Doc (Christopher Walken) is there to pick him up, and the two soon re-team with another old pal, Hirsch (Alan Arkin).  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.

It’s also worth noting that the film was directed by Fisher Stevens, who is best known for playing Ben Jabituya in ‘Short Circuit’ and its sequel. Here’s the trailer:
