Warner Bros. has released the trailer for the movie “The Mule." This is the second movie that Clint Eastwood has directed this year.
He also stars in it as the main character Earl Stone. The film also features other stars like Bradley Cooper and Laurence Fishburne.
“The Mule’s” trailer features Clint Eastwood, 88, acting as Earl Stone, 80, who advises in a voiceover:
“I was a terrible father and a terrible husband. Family’s the most important thing. Don’t do what I did.”
As the name of the movie suggests, Stone is a drug mule who is responsible for transporting cocaine. While doing that he’s forced to take a hard look at his life.

Things go wrong for him when he draws unwanted attention from a determined DEA agent. Eastwood both stars and directs himself in the movie.
The film is actually based on the real-life story of World War II veteran Leo Sharp. He ran drugs for the Sinaloa Cartel and was arrested in 2011 at the age of 87.
The supporting cast features Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Peña, Dianne Wiest, Andy Garcia, Alison Eastwood, Taissa Farmiga, Ignacio Serricchio, Loren Dean, and Eugene Cordero.
Its producers include Eastwood for Malpaso Productions, with Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera, Jessica Meier, and Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas of Imperative Entertainment.
The film will be coming out less than a year after Warner Bros. released Eastwood’s thriller “15:17 to Paris,” which the actor also directed. It will be in theaters nationwide on December 14.
Eastwood hasn’t been the lead actor in a film since 2008’s “Gran Torino.” His latest movie might be his final acting role.
Eastwood is an American actor, filmmaker, musician, and political figure. He found acting success in the Western TV series “Rawhide.”
However, he rose to international fame with his role as the “Man with No Name” in Sergio Leone's “Dollars” Trilogy of spaghetti Westerns during the 1960s.
