Get ready to take a look at the U.S. Government like never before. George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, and Jeff Bridges star in the film called The Men Who Stare At Goats. And it doesn’t have anything to do with barnyard animals.
Ewan plays a reporter in Iraq who meets special forces agent Lyn Cassady (Clooney), who who claims to be a former secret U.S. Military psychic soldier re-activated post-9/11.
He then reveals secrets about a top-secret wing of the U.S. military which wants to change 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 (Jeff Bridges), has gone missing and Cassady's mission is to find him.
The Men Who Stare at Goats was inspired by Jon Ronson's non-fiction bestseller of the same name, an eye-opening exploration of the government's attempts to harness paranormal abilities to combat its enemies.
And the crazy part is that it’s based on a true story!
The Men Who Stare At Goats will be released in theaters November 6th. Check out the trailer below.
