Raging Bull’s Jake LaMotta would make a cool grandpa. Unless, perhaps he took over your room.
These adult vs. kids family movies come along here and there, seems like at least one notable one every year. In 2020, we’re getting Robert De Niro facing off against the child who took his room. An unfriendly roommate dispute, we might say.
Based on the classic children’s novel by author Robert Kimmel Smith, The War with Grandpa looks pretty damned silly, but that’s what makes the movie actually look like it could be a fun time out with the kids. Strangely enough, Robert De Niro looks like he’s having fun in The War with Grandpa, and quite frankly, so do his co-stars. Given the source material, there’s a chance that De Niro and Oakes Fegley’s cinematic war for the ages could be something that kids and adults alike will enjoy.Robert De Niro’s War With Grandpa Trailer Has The Actor Stealing Groceries, Hitting Kids With Dodgeballs – CINEMABLEND
The trailer looks fun enough. October at the theaters is looking pretty lean with this and Honest Thief, the Liam Neeson vehicle leading at least the number of advance previews shown at the start of other movies.
The War with Grandpa opens wide in theaters on October 9, 2020.
