Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper Reunite in Trailer for Drug Drama ‘The Mule’
Clint Eastwood is full of regret and sorrow in the first trailer for “The Mule,” returning to the screen for the first time since 2012’s “Trouble With the Curve.”

“I was a terrible father and a terrible husband,” he says in a voiceover. “Family’s the most important thing. Don’t do what I did.”

Besides taking stock of the mistakes he’s made in life, he’s also transporting cocaine. Eastwood both stars and directs himself in “The Mule,” playing Earl Stone — an 80-year-old who becomes a drug courier for a Mexican cartel.
