Building the hype for the film hitting cinemas on August 26, here’s a new featurette for Jonah Hill/Miles Teller flick War Dogs.

Titled ‘Hustling for the American Dream’, the promo features input from Hill and Teller, as well as Bradley Cooper and director Todd Phillips.

Here’s the blurb for the film:

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. 

Hill and Phillips were at a London screening we attended last night (picture above) and, while we are not allowed to say much, let’s just say we’ll be giving it a very positive review.

Here’s that featurette:
