Tina Fey dances with guns, Afghanistan, and fellow journalists in the new trailer for the comedy “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.” Fey stars as war correspondent Kim Barker, who travels to Afghanistan and Pakistan during Operation Ending Freedom and kindles an unlikely relationship with Scottish journalist Iain MacKelpie (Martin Freeman). Margot Robbie co-stars as a competing reporter, Tanya, who befriends Fey’s character. “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” is based on former Chicago Tribune reporter Kim Barker’s memoir about her experiences reporting in the Middle East, “The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan.” Billy Bob Thornton, Alfred Molina, and Christopher Abbott also star. “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” is set for release March 4.

Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Focus and Crazy, Stupid, Love), the feature film lifts inspiration from Kim Barker’s wartime memoir, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan, shipping Fey’s budding Chicago Tribune reporter off to the front lines as a war correspondent.
And so, without a shred of experience to call her own, Fey’s lead finds herself knee deep in Operation Enduring Freedom – Aka the global war on terrorism – as our photojournalist begins capturing the skirmishes across the sun-scorched region. As today’s trailer attests, overseas reporting is by no means her forte, and Ficarra and Requa are doubling down on the fish-out-of-water dynamic for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. There’s an air of Liz Lemon’s slick sense »

"This is an extreme environment. People with actual experience make bad decisions here." Paramount has debuted another new trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, the comedy from Glenn Ficarra & John Requa starring Tina Fey as a TV reporter sent to do coverage in Afghanistan and Pakistan for her first time. It's a good story to tell, and they try to have fun with it, but sometimes the jokes in this fall flat and it doesn't look that good, but other times it looks solid. This also stars Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Nicholas Braun, Josh Charles, Alfred Molina, plus Christopher Abbott. This trailer is slightly better than the first one, but it still doesn't really show too much. Opening in theaters next month. Here's the second trailer for Glenn Ficarra & John Requa's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, direct via YouTube: You can watch the first official trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot here, »

It's always a bit delicate when comedies drop American actors into foreign lands and aim for laughs, and in the upcoming "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," the jokes look to be mostly at the expense of Tina Fey, though some stereotypes of Middle Easterners also get dragged out. Read More: Watch: Tina Fey Signals 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' In Frist Trailer For Wartime Comedy Based on the memoir by Kim Barker, and co-starring Martin Freeman, Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, and Christopher Abbott, the story follows an American reporter who rolls the dice and takes an assignment abroad, hoping to change up her life. And it looks like her eyes are opened to a new culture, and she grows as a person and finds herself along the way, as these things usually go. Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, ("Focus," "Crazy Stupid Love"), "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" opens on March 4th. »
