From the director of The Hangover trilogy, Todd Phillips brings us his new movie War Dogs; an american biopic / warcrime comedy (if you're allowed to say that), which sees Jonah Hill and Miles Teller teaming up to supply weapons to U.S troops in Afghanistan.
Based on true events, the story follows friends Efraim Diveroli (Hill) and David Packouz (Teller) career as they become major weapon contractors for the U.S Department of Defence, and shares their hilariously creative methods of transporting weapons in the early 2000s.
Funny from the outset, the official trailer does an extremely good job of selling this pair's crazy story to its audience: "Frankly, we were a tad concerned with your performance history against a deal of this size," one of the bureaucrats intones. "But after meeting you two face-to-face, we feel like we're in good hands on this one," his nearly identical partner says.
“What do you mean by that exactly?” asks a puzzled Diveroli "... it means you two boys lowballed the entire industry!" they reply, "you guys came in $53million lower than the nearest competition." (queue house music, fast-paced action, partying, inserts of comical punchlines and Jonah Hill running around an Afghanistan desert with a gun)...
