Going In Style: Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Zach Braff give lowdown on upcoming film
The Going In Style cast and director tell us when the film will release and what it is about
Warner Bros. Pictures released four videos of Going In Style on 20 March, 2017, and all four feature director Zack Braff with his stellar, award-winning cast Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin goofing around.
The first video opens with the line, "Google search: When does Going In Style come out?" Alan Arkin claims to know the answer to the question. "Morgan, tell 'em," he says. "Why don't they just Google it?" Freeman says. "They did, that's where we come in," Braff says. Michael Caine butts in with, "I got this one; it comes out in theatres April 17."
"Really?" Morgan asks with surprise. Caine then corrects himself and says that the film will release on April 7.
This is when the trailer of the film starts, and Michael Caine's character is seen holding a default notice from the bank. "These banks destroyed this country and nothing ever happened to them... I'm thinking of robbing a bank," he says to his friends. "We're going to need a practice run," he adds, as they are seen goofing around in a department store.
The security officer at the department store asks "You guys are old. What would your mama say?" "Go big or go home," says Morgan's character.
In another video that starts with the question "What is Going in Style about?", Freeman replies with, "Three old friends who decide to rob a bank, after the bank takes their well-deserved pensions." Caine and Braff immediately add that it is a "classic story". "It's got action, suspense, romance, thrills, three Oscar winners," says Braff. Arkin insists that they should not call him old anymore.
This film is a heist comedy based on the 1979 film of the same name, directed by Martin Brest.
In a third video, the cast and director discuss who will be starring in the film. "Well, it's directed by me and stars my three old friends," says Braff. Morgan interrupts him and asks, "Who you calling old?" "Why are you so young?" asks Caine. "He's the director, that's his job" says Arkin. "Learn some respect," Morgan recommends to Braff.
The fourth video of the series starts with a Google search for "Evil banks". "You're searching for a very heavy topic," Arkin warns the viewer. "You don't want to click on those links; it's a depressing spiral," says Morgan. "Just come to see us stick it to the man," Caine recommends.
