In the movie, the Hollywood legend's character carries drugs into America.
The film is based on real-life events and pursues the life and adventures of Leo Sharp, who was captured for trafficking drugs in 2011.
Bradley Cooper, who recently starred in the movie "A Star is Born," plays Colin Bates, the DEA agent who wants to bring Sharp's criminal life down once and for all.
The movie trailer begins with a scene when Sharp opens up the trunk of his auto and examines the bags of white powder. He was stunned by the amount he is carrying.
Despite Sharp's endeavors to charm the cop who ceased him, he can't trick the drug-sniffing canine that begins yelping irately.
Sharp clarified using voiceover, “Family is the most important thing. Don’t do what I did. I put work in front of family.”
The trailer has amassed over seven million views since it was uploaded on the popular video sharing site.
On July 24, 2018, Eastwood sued Molecular Defenses Corporation and its chief Kevin Davis over alleged "swindling through outright usurpation, covert intellectual property transfers, and corporate shell games."
In his complaint, the actor alleged that the Antioxidant Pharmaceuticals Corporation underwent restructuring in late 2015. The company allegedly consolidated businesses under the umbrella of a newly formed entity, Molecular Defenses Corporation.
Eastwood wants declarations over inventorship and a constructive trust over patents.
The actor began his career in television and film in the 1950s. He achieved global prominence with his role as the Man with No Name in Sergio Leone's "Dollars Trilogy" during the 1960s.
He is also known as antihero cop Harry Callahan in the five "Dirty Harry" films in the 1970s and 1980s.
The "In the Line of Fire" actor won Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture for his work in the Western film "Unforgiven" and the sports drama "Million Dollar Baby."
He has run his own production company, Malpaso Productions, since 1967.
