In this quirky dark comedy inspired by a real life story you will hardly believe is actually true, astonishing revelations about a top-secret wing of the U.S. military come to light when a reporter encounters an enigmatic Special Forces operator on a mind-boggling mission. Reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) is in search of his next big story when he encounters Lyn Cassady (Academy Award®winner George Clooney), a shadowy figure who claims to be part of an experimental U.S. military unit. According to Cassady, the New Earth Army is changing the way wars are fought. A legion of “Warrior Monks” with unparalleled psychic powers can read the enemy’s thoughts, pass through solid walls, and even kill a goat simply by staring at it. Now, the program’s founder, Bill Django (Oscar® nominee Jeff Bridges), has gone missing and Cassady’s mission is to find him. Intrigued by his new acquaintance’s far-fetched stories, Bob impulsively decides to accompany him on the search. When the pair tracks Django to a clandestine training camp run by renegade psychic Larry Hooper (two-time Oscar® winner Kevin Spacey), the reporter is trapped in the middle of a grudge match between the forces of Django’s New Earth Army and Hooper’s personal militia of super soldiers. In order to survive this wild adventure, Bob will have to outwit an enemy he never thought possible. The Men Who Stare at Goats was inspired by Jon Ronson’s non-fiction bestseller of the same name, an eye-opening and often hilarious exploration of the government’s attempts to harness paranormal abilities to combat its enemies.

I am looking forward to this more than Avatar

    I want to see this! So badly!

    But in the immediate sense I'm more curious about how many butts Gatsby possesses.

    Like... like nine? Eleven?

    More than eleven?

    Also sometimes I get leery of films with so many big names, but I just... I just can't fathom how this could possibly be bad.

    The way it keeps throwing it in your face that it's all true leads me to believe that none of it's true.

    I giggled. I don't know if Ewan McGregor being in a good film about fake jedi would be ironic or not.

    That's so many!

    In some countries you would be worshipped as a master of your discipline, a butts-guru whom other butts-collectors would follow across the globe, prostrating themselves upon your doorstep in order to learn your secrets.

    it's pretty hilarious how Ewan MacGregor is completely unable to do an American accent

    but the main reason I'm seeing this movie is George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, and Kevin Spacey as crazy psychic warriors for the CIA

    "It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart" is one that I use quite frequently, usually in a way that actually has a bearing on the conversation at hand

    And I just love "Uh, well we are colored, sir, except for our accompani- uh, accomp- uh, fella who plays the giutar"
