Warner bros. has released a new trailer for War Dogs, a film based on a true story and stars Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as two ambitious young men who become weapons traders for the U.S. government, landing multimillion-dollar arms contracts and living the high life before everything comes crashing down. The film also stars Bradley Cooper and Ana de Armas and opens in theaters on August 19th. Check out the trailer and poster below:
Based on a true story, “War Dogs” follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami during the first Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts. Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a 300 million dollar deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.
