First Official Trailer for Richard Linklater’s LAST FLAG FLYING with Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell & Laurence Fishburne

LAST FLAG FLYING is an upcoming comedy-drama film directed by Richard Linklater (Before... films trilogy, Boyhood) with a screenplay by Linklater and Darryl Ponicsan, based upon the latter’s 2005 novel of the same name. It is a sequel to the 1973 Hal Ashby film The Last Detail. Set to open the 55th edition of the New York Film Festival, the film stars Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, Laurence Fishburne and J. Quinton Johnson.

In 2003, 30 years after they served together in the Vietnam War, former Navy Corps medic Larry “Doc” Shepherd (Carell) re-unites with ex-Marine Sal Nealon (Cranston) and Reverend Richard Mueller (Fishburne) on a different type of mission: to bury Doc’s son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War. Doc decides to forgo burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, Doc, Sal and Mueller reminisce and come to terms with shared memories of the war that continues to shape their lives.
