Watch: Al Pacino, Christopher Walken & Alan Arkin Do Drugs, Drive Fast Cars In 'Stand Up Guys' Trailer

If “The Expendables 2” didn’t meet your fill of Old Guys Doing Things, then let us recycle an old joke and introduce you to the Depends-ables (GET IT?). Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin are up to no good in the first trailer for “Stand Up Guys,” which once again finds some elderly dudes doing wacky stuff.

Penned by Noah Haidle, the story follows two friends and lifelong criminals, one of whom has been hired to kill his friend who just got out of the joint. They have one last night of fun hitting up a brothel, doing drugs, stealing cars and dodging police but it seems they are also going to learn LIFE LESSONS. It’s from the producer of “Million Dollar Baby” for whatever that’s worth, and is directed by Fisher Stevens (“Crazy Love,” “Just A Kiss“).

This looks pretty terrible, though just being able to watch Pacino, Walken and Arkin riff and share scenes may make it worth the price of admission. “Stand Up Guys” hits on January 11th. Watch below.

this trailer seems pretty good to me, plus I love Pacino and Walken..


This actually looks really, really good to me. Pacino seems to be in great form. And it looks like it's a great mix of drama, comedy and action.


It makes me so sad that Pacino and Walken never starred in a movie together when they were young. Sigh.


Yea PLAYLIST, def doesnt look as bad as you said in your posting. I thought maybe it can have some touching heartfelt moments….It could be a sleeper surprise who knows (but probably not a financially unfortunately)


Looks good. I won't buy a ticket for it. But I'll definitely check it out when it hits Netflix.


Yeah, looks surprisingly good.


yeah i was also expecting it to be really bad but it actually looks rather fun


And what is so terrible about this trailer? I think it looks pretty good. Other than some tone issues (from sentimental to wacky and back again), I don't have a problem with it.
