Hey guys, Jana here,

The best way for me to describe this trailer is ‘Grumpy Old Men‘ with Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones and swap out Ann-Margaret for Rene Russo. While you’re at it you can replace the snow with Palm Springs and add in some mafia intrigue and action. So it’s only like ‘Grumpy Old Men‘ in the way curmudgeonly men snipe at each other and fight over a woman, I guess.

What we do have is that wonderful combination of comedy and action from writer/director Ron Shelton (‘Tin Cup‘, ‘Bull Durham‘). The cast is rounded out with Jane Seymour, George Wallace, Joe Pantoliano, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Glenne Headly in one of her last projects before her death.

Morgan Freeman stars as Duke Diver, the freewheeling manager of the luxury Palm Springs resort, the Villa Capri. Diver may have a mysterious past, but he’s a pro at making sure that life for the high-spirited residents is one big, non-stop party. But the status quo is challenged when ex-military charmer Leo(Tommy Lee Jones) checks in, triggering a competition between Duke and Leo for the top spot of Alpha male, as well as for the affections of the newly-arrived Suzie (Rene Russo). When Duke’s past suddenly catches up with him, the rivals put aside their differences and the two men reluctantly team up to stop whoever is trying to kill Duke, and also save the Villa Capri. The film bows December 8, 2017.
