Two George Clooney movies premiering at this year’s Toronto Film Festival are director Jason Reitman’s “Up in the Air” and director Grant Heslov’s “The Men Who Stare at Goats”. Both films have been under the radar as neither has a trailer and I’ve yet to see any movie images.
So when I got my hands on the first images from both films, I figured you’d be as excited as I was to see them. Unfortunately, all I could get was an image of Jason Reitman for “Up in the Air”. He might have been pointing at George Clooney…who knows. However, for George’s other movie “The Men Who Stare at Goats”, I’ve got a great shot. Take a look at both after the jump:
Here’s both synopsis:
“Up in the Air” stars George Clooney as Ryan Bingham, a businessman on the verge of reaching five million frequent flyer miles when his company decides to cut back on travel. But his goal isn’t the only thing just out of reach: he now won’t be able to see a fellow frequent traveler (Vera Farmiga) who has caught his eye.
“The Men Who Stare at Goats”
Reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) is in search of his next big story when he encounters Lyn Cassady (George Clooney), a shadowy figure who claims to be part of an experimental U.S. military unit. According to Cassady, the New Earth Army is changing the way wars are fought. A legion of “Warrior Monks” with unparalleled psychic powers can read the enemy’s thoughts, pass through solid walls and even kill a goat simply by staring at it. When the programme’s founder, Bill Django (Jeff Bridges), goes missing, Cassady’s mission is to find him in this quirky dark comedy, inspired by a real story. The film also stars Kevin Spacey.
