As any fool knows, Ari Gold doesn’t do domesticity very well. In the series finale of “Entourage,” he gave up his career dreams to save his marriage, but there was a cliffhanger. A post-credits sequence showed Ari and his wife Melissa relaxing in Italy when he gets a phone call offering to run Warner Bros. studios. So the imminent “Entourage” film sees Ari back in Hollywood running his game, but if you need a quick update on what he’s been up to, this four-minute clip will have you covered.
Hanging out in the beautiful Italian countryside isn’t quite working for Ali, but Melissa appreciates the gesture and now wants him to get back to work. But he needs a sign that he can be sure he’s making the right decision, and what follows is a slightly surrealistic journey as the former Hollywood player gets his mojo back. It’s not a particularly great teaser, but Jeremy Piven is always enjoyable playing the relentlessly driven Ari.
Speaking of which, the character now has a book on sale, “The Gold Standard: Rules to Rule By.” It’s a real thing, and after the clip, you can see his sales pitch for the book below, followed by an interview with Adrien Grenier and Kevin Dillon. “Entourage” opens on June 3rd.
