Trailer Park | Burn After Reading

2 08 2008


What do you get when you combine a pair of quirky directors with two A-List superstars? A hilarious trailer for the upcoming Coen Brothers’ film, “Burn After Reading.”

Ozzie Cox (John Malkovich) is a CIA veteran who is fired because he is an alcoholic. He takes his revenge by writing some inflammatory memoirs. Cox’s soon-to-be ex-wife Katie (Tilda Swinton) steals the disc containing his memoirs and accidentally leaves it at the gym where it is found by a trainer, Chad Feldheimer (Brad Pitt) and the gym’s owner, Linda Litzke (Frances McDormand). They believe they can use the info to blackmail Cox.

Harry Pfarrer (George Clooney) is an oversexed, fanatically fit, lactose-intolerant federal marshal who is sleeping with Cox’s estranged wife. He meets Linda via an online dating service and gets entangled in the blackmail scheme, when he stumbles across Chad breaking into his and Katie’s house.
In Burn After Reading, an ousted CIA official’s (Malkovich) memoir accidentally falls into the hands of two unwise gym employees intent on exploiting their find.

No two actors look like they’re having as much fun making movies as Pitt and Clooney.

“Burn After Reading” opens on September 12.
