Watch: Jonah Hill, Miles Teller Run Guns in ‘War Dogs’ Trailer

Jonah Hill and Miles Teller portray wisecracking arms dealers who are in over their heads in the first trailer for the action-comedy “War Dogs.”

Based on a true story as told in the Rolling Stone article by Guy Lawson, the film was formerly called “Arms and the Dudes.”

It follows two friends, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, in their 20s in Miami who, in 2007, underbid rivals by $53 million for a $300 million Pentagon contract to arm the Afghan military — to the bemusement of a roomful of generals.”Your bid was far too low for us to pass up,” one notes.

After plenty of partygoing and gunplay, the duo manage to deliver a truckload of weapons to their intended destination — despite being obviously out of their depth.

“You drove these through the Triangle of Death?” an incredulous commander asks.

Hill responds by saying, “We drive through all triangles, including your mom’s.”

Bradley Cooper and Ana de Armas co-star in “War Dogs,” directed by Todd Phillips (“The Hangover”) from a script he co-wrote with Stephen Chin and Jason Smilovic. Mark Gordon, Phillips and Cooper are the producers, with David Siegel and Bryan Zuriff serving as executive producers.

Warner Bros. is releasing the film on Aug. 19.
