The Oceans duo are back on the big screen in the first Wolfs trailer – a buddy crime caper from Jon Watts.

2001 called, and they want their leading men back.

That’s right, it’s the Ocean’s Eleven reunion we’ve been waiting for. Brad Pitt and George Clooney are starring as rival ‘fixers’ in Jon Watts’ first feature post-Spider-Man: No Way Home, with a title apparently stolen from Harvey Keitel’s character in Pulp Fiction.

My head hurts. Here’s the Wolfs trailer.

True to the name’s Tarantino roots, Pitt and Clooney co-star as a pair of, er, specialist cleaner-folk, both hired to dispose of the same body at the same time. Cue hijinks, a few drugs and a gunfight or two – you know the drill.

The trailer drops at an auspicious time for the big-screen action-comedy genre. The Fall Guy – a more-or-less original crowd-pleaser originally seen as the kick-start to the summer blockbuster season – is heading to streaming in the UK next week, not long after it arrived on US services 17 days after its big-screen debut. So far, the film (which we rather liked) has earned a below-expectations $145.9m worldwide.

On the other hand, 2022’s Bullet Train (also directed by Leitch, and starring Pitt) knocked up a respectable $239.3m on its summer debut, perhaps indicating that the market for this sort of fun, starry thriller isn’t as small as some doom-and-gloom headlines would have us believe.

Anyway, parking our high horse at the door, this looks like a lot of fun. Produced by Apple TV+ and presumably intended to flesh out their streaming service, the tech giant has teamed up with Sony for theatrical distribution after finding similar success with Ridley Scott’s Napoleon. Combined with last year’s Killers Of The Flower Moon, the streamer might soon be getting a reputation as one of the few places willing to splash the cash on grown-up, original film projects (down, high horse, down!).

Wolfs is heading to UK cinemas on 20th September.
