If you thought Grudge Match would be the only upcoming comedy film in which Robert De Niro throws a punch, you were mistaken. He’s feeling pugilistic in this latest trailer for old-dudes-hit-Sin-City comedy Last Vegas.
Admittedly, the slug comes in a moment repurposed from the first theatrical trailer, which you can see at this link. Indeed, there are several beats and lines recycled from both that promo and the original teaser.
Last Vegas finds Michael Douglas as Billy, an old bachelor about to finally tie the knot with a much younger woman (one of his pals cracks that he’s marrying “an infant”). So he gathers old pals Archie (Morgan Freeman), Sam (Kevin Kline) and Paddy (De Niro) together for a party in Las Vegas to send him off into married life.
There are just a few small wrinkles: the lads are not quite as up for hard drinking as they once were and there’s also the small matter of simmering resentment from old wounds between Billy and Paddy. So expect some emotional bickering at the same time as the liquor gets flowing.
With Mary Steenburgen, Jerry Ferrara, Romany Malco and Roger Bart all part of the cast, Last Vegas is out here on November 8.
