Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone's island romance has been kicking around since at least 2008, back when it was supposed to star Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon. The wait is over: "Aloha" opens this weekend, becoming Cameron Crowe's first movie since 2011's "We Bought a Zoo."
The "Almost Famous" and "Jerry Maguire" director has a soft spot for down-on-their-luck characters in search of redemption, and "Aloha" very much fits the same mold. That's apparent within the first eight minutes, which The Huffington Post and its parent company, AOL, are premiering exclusively ahead of the nationwide release on Friday. In the clip, we meet the film's three leads: Cooper plays a disgraced military contractor completing a mission in Hawaii, Stone stars as an Air Force pilot assigned to work with him and Rachel McAdams portrays a still-burning flame who is now married with two children. Naturally, sparks fly from all corners, squeezing "Aloha" squarely into the increasingly rare romantic-comedy genre.
"Aloha" co-stars John Krasinski, Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin and Danny McBride. Watch the clip below:
