It is been a while, Burt Reynolds appeared in a new movie, but he’s got a brilliant and charming looking film coming out called The Last Movie Star and now you can watch its first trailer. The movie also stars Ariel Winter (Modern Family) and Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine, Kick-Ass 2).
In the film, Reynolds plays an aging actor named Vic Edwards who was very popular in his earlier career. He was a college football player, then a stunt double and then a leading man. He heads to Nashville (after getting advice from a friend played by Chevy Chase) to get a lifetime achievement award. Instead of being given a hotel suite and pampered, he finds that it’s a low budget festival put on locally and that he’s the only major honoree who has ever shown up. While he’s there, however, he goes on a journey of self-discovery.
The Last Movie Star will premiere on DirecTV on February 22 and will hit select theaters in New York and Los Angeles on March 30.
