New trailer released for Stan and Ollie

Sony Pictures Classics has released the official US trailer for the upcoming biopic Stan & Ollie, which chronicles the later years of Laurel & Hardy – played by John C. Reilly (Oliver Hardy) and Steve Coogan (Stan Laurel):

Laurel & Hardy, one of the world’s great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans.

The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can’t quite shake the spectre of Laurel and Hardy’s past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.
