The melodramatic, life-affirming road trip is primarily a young person’s game, since only young people have the time and healthy bladders necessary for spending an extended period of time in a car, but that doesn’t mean older people can’t have their own melodramatic, life-affirming road trips. That’s what happens in this trailer for Last Flag Flying, Richard Linklater’s adaptation of Darryl Ponicsan’s 2005 novel of the same name, which involves Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne as former military buddies who reunite after Carell’s son is killed in Iraq. The trailer weirdly doesn’t mention it, but the movie is actually a sequel to Ponicsan’s The Last Detail, which Hal Ashby adapted into a movie in 1973 with Jack Nicholson, Randy Quaid, and Otis Young.

Last Flag Flying will be in theaters in November.
