PG-13for drug content, language and some suggestive material

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 and Joey King (“Wish I Was Here”), as Joe’s whip-smart granddaughter, Brooklyn. John Ortiz (“Silver Linings Playbook”) 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; with Oscar nominee Matt Dillon (“Crash”) as FBI Agent Hamer; and Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future” trilogy) as the guys’ lodge buddy, Milton. Zach Braff (“Garden State”) directs from a screenplay by Theodore Melfi (“Hidden Figures,” “St. Vincent”). “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”). “Going in Style” is scheduled for release on April 7, 2017.

Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.
