Fans of Entourage have been patiently waiting since 2011. Waiting to see if their favorite New York to Los Angeles buddies would be back with their moviemaking and heartbreaking drama. Well, today is the day. The first Entourage movie trailer is finally online.
The film brings back the entire original cast (including, but not limited to, Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven) in a story that picks up a little bit after the series left off. Ari Gold (Piven) is running his own studio now and his first big bet is on Vincent Chase (Grenier). Chase wants to not only star in, but direct his own movie.
Written and directed by series creator Doug Ellin, Entourage opens on June 5. Watch the Entourage movie trailer below, and check out the first poster for Chase’s movie, Hyde as well as the teaser poster.
Thanks to Warner Bros. for the Entourage movie trailer.
Entourage Movie Trailer
For anyone confused by some of the more famous faces in that trailer, Mark Wahlberg is the basis for the show, a co-creator and long time producer. So him showing up makes sense. Also, Billy Bob Thornton plays a rich movie investor and Haley Joel Osment is his son, tasked with keeping an eye on what Chase and company do with daddy’s money. Things do not go well there.
As for the beginning of the trailer, it’s the movie within the movie. Here’s the poster for Chase’s movie, Hyde. Love the Aquaman and Medellin references.
The co-star, of the film within the film, Calvin Harris, tweeted that out, so you can add another cameo to the sure to be massive list.
When Entourage ended, the show left a lot of questions unanswered. Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui) was pregnant with Eric’s child, Vince was on his way to Paris to get married, Ari accepts a job as the head of the studio (in the series’ post credits scene, which all but sealed the deal for the movie) and so much more. I can’t wait to see if and how the film finishes those storylines, while also giving fans a story that’s worthy of being a movie. What is it about this story that makes it a movie instead of just season 9, episodes 1 through 4? We’ll certainly find out more come June 5.
For now though, that trailer had the humor, energy and tone I love from Entourage. It looks great. Here’s the teaser poster:
