John Malkovich's Buck Howard takes Colin Hanks' Troy Gable on the ride of his life when he suddenly finds back his fame in a new trailer of 'The Great Buck Howard'.
Yahoo! Movies has exclusively premiered the trailer to Magnolia Pictures dramedy "The Great Buck Howard". Teasing what the movie is all about, the trailer offers the story from Troy Gable's perspective, starting with the introduction of who he is and what he experiences and learns when working with Buck Howard.
Pairing up John Malkovich and Colin Hanks, "The Great Buck Howard" tells the story of Buck Howard, an illusionist in decline, and Troy Gable, a law school drop-out who becomes his assistant. Having spent his time in the limelight years before, Buck is convinced that his comeback is imminent, and all he needs right now is a new road manager and personal assistant. The latter he finds in Troy. Needing a job and a purpose, he signs on to work for the belligerent has-been magician and learns a few tricks he couldn't possibly have picked up in law school.
Apart from John Malkovich and Colin Hanks, the comedy movie also sees Emily Blunt, Tom Hanks and Steve Zahn among the cast ensemble, while Sean McGinly serves as its director and writer. It will be making its debut in limited theaters across the U.S. on March 20.
