George Clooney and Brad Pitt Are on the Hunt in First “Wolfs” Trailer

For the first time in 16 years, Brad Pitt and George Clooney are sharing the screen together, and in the first trailer for writer/director Jon Watts’ Wolfs, the two get off to a rollicking fun start.

The trailer opens with Clooney’s fixer being called to a woman’s apartment (Amy Ryan) in a huge heap of trouble. Clooney’s fixer has been there and done that, and scrubbing a crime scene or removing a body is all in a night’s work for him. Things get complicated when there’s a second knock at the door—enter Brad Pitt’s fixer—who has also been called in. Then, the body they’re there to remove turns out to have life left in it. A lot of life. Thus, their strange trip begins as these two lone wolves are forced to spend an increasingly bizarre, increasingly dangerous night together.

The reunion of these two mega-stars has been a long time coming. It was 24 years ago when they were still the two biggest names in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven franchise, playing Rusty Ryan and Danny Ocean, respectively. Yet we haven’t seen them on screen together since the Coen Brothers’ 2008 dark comedy Burn After Reading, so finding them co-starring and co-producing the new film gives you a good sense of how their careers have gone since. Pitt’s Plan B and Clooney’s Smokehouse Pictures are both producing Watts’s original film, and their on-screen chemistry might be a little more grizzled and gruff than their easy, fresh-faced rapport in that first Ocean’s, but they’ve lost none of the vim and vigor that make them such an ideal pairing.

Joining Pitt, Clooney, and Ryan are Austin Abrams, Poorna Jagannathan, Rob Riddell, Irina Dubova, and Hassani Rizzo.

Check out the trailer below. Wolfs hits theaters on September 20.
