Director Grant Heslov; Release date: 6 November
Imagine Jeff Bridges reprising his Big Lebowski role but as the New Age pioneer of a secret US army unit that experiments in psychic warfare. With him come George Clooney and Kevin Spacey as his light and dark Jedi pupils, and Ewan McGregor as the down-on-his-luck nobody who stumbles across them in his desperate bid to be a war reporter. Now you've got an idea of the pitch for The Men Who Stare at Goats. This is a satire, and a very funny one, of US delusions in Iraq.
