Hawaii may be the perfect getaway spot for a celebrity vacation but the small archipelago has lacked a real presence in the movie industry over the years. The small chain of islands served as the backdrop for Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Descendants, both above par rom-coms, yet has failed to attract more than the occasional flick since. This week, Sony has dropped the first trailer for Cameron Crowe’s next film Aloha, and the cast is reason enough to pay attention.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Although the premise seems like familiar territory from Crowe, we’re pleased to see Stone decked in a camouflage combat uniform. Plus, Bill Murray meets Cameron Crowe.
Aloha opens on May 29.
