'War Dogs' Trailer: Bradley Cooper Joins Jonah Hill and Miles Teller In This True Story

Update 7/1/16: A new trailer for War Dogs is out. It's not wildly different from the first trailer, but it does feature much more of Bradley Cooper positioning himself as the film's bad guy. Check it out at the bottom of this post.

 

Previously 3/24/16: War Dogs may sound like the name of a movie about werewolf soldiers, but it's actually the new title for the previously announced Arms and the Dudes. Directed by Todd Phillips (the Hangover trilogy), the comedy stars Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as two entrepreneurial, party-loving bros who land a contract with the U.S. government for $300 million to supply weapons and ammunition to the Afghan military.

That may sound like a silly premise making fun of the way the U.S. government spends money, but the crazy thing is that War Dogs is actually based on a true story. The movie, co-written by Phillips, is an adaptation of the 2015 non-fiction book Arms and the Dudes: How Three Stoners from Miami Beach Became the Most Unlikely Gunrunners in History. That full title should give you a pretty good idea of what kind of story is being told here, but if not, the first trailer is here to get the job done.

War Dogs looks a bit like it may end up being a cross between Lord of War and The Wolf of Wall Street, which is an intriguing proposition. Now we just need to wait until its August 19, 2016 release to see if that is indeed what Todd Phillips has pulled off.
