Nobody Runs Forever. Clint Eastwood is #TheMule, in theaters December 14.
From Warner Bros. Pictures, Imperative Entertainment and BRON Creative comes Clint Eastwood’s newest feature film, the drama “The Mule.” In addition to directing, the veteran actor will step in front of the lens again, alongside fellow stars Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Peña, Dianne Wiest and Andy Garcia, as well as Alison Eastwood, Taissa Farmiga, Ignacio Serricchio and Loren Dean, Eugene Cordero.
Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him.
“The Mule” marks Oscar-winner Eastwood’s first time on both sides of the camera since he starred in 2009’s critically acclaimed “Gran Torino.”
Cooper, who stars as Bates, received his most recent Oscar nominations for his work with Eastwood, acting in and producing “American Sniper”; he will next be seen in his feature directorial debut, “A Star Is Born.” Oscar nominee Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It,” TV’s “Black-ish”) plays a DEA special agent in charge; Peña (upcoming “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” Netflix’s “Narcos”) plays a fellow agent; Oscar winner Wiest (“Bullets Over Broadway,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” TV’s “Life in Pieces”) plays Earl’s ex-wife; Oscar nominee Garcia (“The Godfather: Part III”) plays a cartel boss; Alison Eastwood (“Rails & Ties”) plays Earl’s daughter; Farmiga (“The Nun”) plays the role of Earl’s granddaughter; Serricchio (Netflix’s “Lost in Space,” “The Wedding Ringer”) plays Earl’s cartel handler; Dean (“Space Cowboys”) plays another agent; and Cordero (“Kong: Skull Island”) plays a cartel member.
Clint Eastwood (“Sully,” “American Sniper”) directed from a screenplay by Nick Schenk (“Gran Torino”), inspired by the New York Times Magazine article “The Sinaloa Cartels’ 90-Year-Old Drug Mule” by Sam Dolnick. Eastwood also produced the film under his Malpaso banner, along with Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier, and Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas. The film’s executive producers are Dave Bernad, Ruben Fleischer, Todd Hoffman and Aaron Gilbert. Jillian Apfelbaum and David M. Bernstein co-produced.
Eastwood’s team behind the scenes includes director of photography Yves Bélanger (“Brooklyn,” “Dallas Buyers Club”) and production designer Kevin Ishioka (“The 15:17 to Paris”), along with longtime costume designer Deborah Hopper and Oscar-winning editor Joel Cox (“Unforgiven”), who have worked with Eastwood throughout the years on numerous projects.
A Warner Bros. Pictures Presentation, in Association with Imperative Entertainment, in Association with BRON Creative, a Malpaso Production, “The Mule” will be released in theaters December 14, 2018, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
"and the academy award goes to--oh, wait. we gave it to 'unforgiven' when it should have gone to 'the crying game'. and we gave it to gene hackman when it should have gone to jaye davidson. sorry, clint. icon or not, you've had your share. now get out of line."
Thanks for the clip. I can't wait to see it. It should be in Plano or Irving by February 2019. It looks like another good one from a great egg. I'm glad to hear you're still going strong. We will vastly miss your gravelly voice and that perturbed look, or is it a scowl? If he reads this, Merry Christmas, Mr. Eastwood""" My father loved you until the day he died in '94.
I went to see this movie today. The only thing that I did not catch is how Bradley Cooper's character, the agent from the DEA, picks up the conversation from the drug thug and his boss on the phone when they intercept Earl right after he is getting out of his wife's funeral service.
I haven’t heard or seen a movie advertised in well over a year or longer,
That made me want to sit my rear in a theater seat,
If Clint Eastwood has anything to do with it, it’s good, if he directs it,
it’s fantastic, if he acts & directs it,
it’s an instant classic Gold!
Came here after a review complaining this movie was racist melodrama. I see nothing of that sort in the trailer. And if you go into a Clint Eastwood movie, you know what you're going into. He already gave up his racism in Gran Torino and Unforgiven. So if this is racist, it's probably shown as a joke or in a bad light. Unfortunately some people don't understand the difference between jokes and reality.
The guy could’ve retired 20 years ago and lived the rest of his life comfortably but that’s not who he is, he keeps bringing us great cinema whether it’s in front or behind the camera because it’s in his blood, it’s his passion and it shows in the great works of art he keeps bringing us and I’m there for it!
You know what's sad? I'm more exited about this film than I am with the next Star Wars film. I happen to be a Clint Eastwood fan. If this film came out next year around the same time as episode 9, I'd probably go see it over Star Wars.
Clint Eastwood is by far the most admired personality among the Hollywood community. Let me tell you a true story. This was told to me by the tour guide when I went for the Warner Bros Studio tour in LA. John Travolta was shooting for a movie in the studios and he was addicted to playing basketball so he asked the studio head if he could get a basketball court set up in a vacant spot on the premises. The studio head who was totally against the idea asked Travolta to get 200 signatures of producers and he would allow it. John took went to Clint Eastwood's office and got his signature on a piece of paper. He took the piece of paper and went to the studio head who ordered the immediate set up of the basketball court.
Okay okay I won't ruin it for everyone my, my friend is an actress and we got invited to the premier.. We just got home from viewing it, Clint wasn't there but all the other actors were.. All I'm going to say is the trailer is good that's all yall can guess the rest.
Its Me “Dude” you can’t tell me anything I was in the movie and read the whole script! Only reason i wasn’t there is because my son had a championship AllStar football game. It’s ok if you didn’t like it. You’re def entitled to your opinion. Thanks for watching though. Have an amazing day.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
