Amazon Studios has released the first trailer for Richard Linklater‘s upcoming Last Flag Flying, starring Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Lawrence Fishburne. Carell plays a man who, after losing his son in Iraq, reunites with his Marine buddies in order to take his casket from Arlington to his home in New Hampshire.
The film will be premiering at this year’s New York Film Festival and will be opening in theaters November 3rd.
In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Corps medic Larry “Doc” Shepherd (Steve Carell) re-unites with ex-Marine Sal Nealon (Bryan Cranston) and Reverend Richard Mueller (Laurence Fishburne) on a different type of mission: to bury Doc’s son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forgo burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, Doc, Sal and Mueller reminisce and come to terms with shared memories of the war that continues to shape their lives.
