“Going in Style”, Alan Arkin, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine form a formidable trio ready to "say goodbye in style," as the title of the film says. The Going in Style trailer features a comedy with some action with the talents of these three veterans who lend themselves to something light and seemingly fun.
The plot follows three friends navigating the elderly until they are in financial trouble that forces them to come up with an unusual plan of robbing a bank, something in which they have nothing of experience. For that they request the help of an expert, but likewise, a series of joking situations are guaranteed for a pochoclera film of hour and a half.
Most striking of all is that it is directed by Zach Braff, who know more as the type of Scrubs, but made a couple of super independent films and well hipsters. It seems that the style did not work much, and now is trying something more commercial.
Oscar winners Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”), Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules,” “Hannah and Her Sisters”) and Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty, in director Zach Braff’s comedy “Going in Style.
Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.

The film also stars two-time Oscar nominee Ann-Margret (“Tommy,” “Carnal Knowledge”) as Annie, a grocery cashier who’s been checking Al out in more ways than one. Joey King (“Wish I Was Here”) stars as Joe’s whip-smart granddaughter, Brooklyn; with Oscar nominee Matt Dillon (“Crash”) as FBI Agent Hamer; and Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future” trilogy) as the guys’ lodge buddy, Milton. John Ortiz (“Silver Linings Playbook”) also stars as Jesus, a man of unspecified credentials who agrees to show the guys the ropes, and Peter Serafinowicz (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Joe’s former son-in-law, Murphy, whose pot clinic connections may finally prove useful. “Going in Style” is produced by Donald De Line (“The Italian Job”). The executive producers are Toby Emmerich, Samuel J. Brown, Michael Disco, Andrew Haas, Jonathan McCoy, Tony Bill, who was a producer on the 1979 film “Going in Style,” and Bruce Berman.
The creative filmmaking team includes Emmy-nominated director of photography Rodney Charters (“24”); production designer Anne Ross (“Lost in Translation”); editor Myron Kerstein (Braff’s “Garden State” and “Wish I Was Here”); costume designer Gary Jones (“New Year’s Eve”); and composer Rob Simonsen (“Foxcatcher,” “Wish I was Here”).
