The Men Who Stare at Goats
trailer came out recently, and I've got to say this should certainly be on the radar for anyone that would enjoy a bizarre (albeit true!) romp with Ewan McGregor
, George Clooney
, Kevin Spacey
, and Jeff Bridges
. Trailer after the break!Best Week Ever
clued me in on the existence when they first listed it on their 15 Movies To Be Excited About in 2009
and while they may be a bit worried about the lack of goats
in the trailer, consider this writer sold.
The Men Who Stare at Goats follows the Jon Ronson book about an investigative reporter who stumbles upon a military program to use New Age beliefs - cloud bursting, driving while blindfolded, and killing goats by staring at them - in the first Iraq War. It's the second collaboration of Clooney and direct Grant Heslov (Good Night and Good Luck
) and is due for release this November.
