ShortList Film Club screens War Dogs


When the director of The Hangover trilogy comes together with one of the stars of Wolf Of Wall Street, then you know the results are going to be worth watching.

And that's exactly what's happened with War Dogs, a brilliant new film directed by Todd Phillips and starring Jonah Hill, which manages to marry the best elements of both films - all set in the murky world of international arms dealing.

We hosted a special screening of the film at London's Picturehouse Central cinema in Piccadilly last night (11 August), with both Phillips and Hill in attendance; they even took the time to have a quick chat to the lucky readers who'd nabbed themselves free tickets.

If you missed out, don't worry, the film, which also stars Whiplash's Miles Teller and American Sniper's Bradley Cooper hits cinemas on Friday August 26. The biographical crime war comedy is based on true events, following two 'entrepreneurs' who manage to get themselves far deeper into the arms world than they ever imagined.

You can check out the trailer below.
