101 Studios and Brookdale Studios have released the official The War with Grandpa trailer, starring Robert De Niro and Oakes Fegley in the upcoming family comedy.
Based on the award-winning book by Robert Kimmel Smith, The War with Grandpa follows sixth-grader Peter (Fegley), who is pretty much your average kid — he likes gaming, hanging with his friends and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather Ed (Robert De Niro) moves in with Peter’s family, the boy is forced to give up his most prized possession of all, his bedroom. Unwilling to let such an injustice stand, Peter devises a series of increasingly elaborate pranks to drive out the interloper, but Grandpa Ed won’t go without a fight. Soon, the friendly combatants are engaged in an all-out war with side-splitting consequences.
The comedy features an all-star supporting cast, including Christopher Walken, Uma Thurman, Rob Riggle, Cheech Marin, Laura Marano, and Jane Seymour. The War with Grandpa is directed by Tim Hill from a screenplay by Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember. The film will be released in theaters on October 9, 2020.
