When news about “Stand Up Guys” first hit the web, all The Audio Dope could say was “ugh”. Over the past decade, once-legendary actors Al Pacino and Christopher Walken have taken some crappy roles in some low-quality movies. I get that Walken has gone on the record about doing so many films because he just loves to act, but Pacino has no excuse. When you star in movies such as “The Godfather” and “The Deer Hunter”, it just makes no sense to star in movies such as “Kangaroo Jack” and “88 Minutes” So when I heard that Pacino and Walken were teaming up for a old-man buddy-esque movie, I thought disaster was a guarantee.
However after seeing the newly-released trailer for “Stand Up Guys”, I actually have some hope for this film. Not only does “Stand Up Guys” look like it’ll be thoroughly entertaining in terms of comedy and drama, it just looks like an overall good movie. The music in the trailer was awesome and definitely set the tone for what the upcoming movie is all about. Stay tuned for more news to come. Check out the trailer below.
