Before director Cameron Crowe's Aloha opens in theaters nationwide tomorrow, May 29, fans can watch the first 8 minutes of this romantic comedy. The opening scenes shows Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams' characters meeting for the very first time, along with some colorful archival footage that showcases some of Hawaii's cultural touchstones along with astronauts and military personnel on the island state. We also learn why Bradley Cooper's Brian Gilcrest decided to go into his chosen profession at a very young age, and get a hint of some mystical Hawaiian forces that could come into play.
In Aloha, a celebrated military contractor (Bradley Cooper) returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs - the US Space program in Honolulu, Hawaii - and reconnects with a long-ago love (Rachel McAdams) while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog (Emma Stone) assigned to him. From Academy Award-winner Cameron Crowe, the writer-director behind such films as Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous, Aloha also stars Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin.
Aloha opens against the 3D disaster movie San Andreas this weekend, which is expected to take in more than $40 million in its opening weekend.
