Film starring Zac Efron premiers at Toronto International Film Festival


In filmmaker Peter Farrelly's "The Greatest Beer Run Ever," a sequel to the Oscar-winning "Green Book," Zac Efron plays Chickie, a fervent supporter of the Vietnam War who spent his free time relaxing at his parents' house and drinking at the neighbourhood bar (2018).

The movie, which stars Russell Crowe and Billy Murray, had its world premiere on Tuesday at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Talking to Reuters, Zac Efron said, "I couldn't believe that this really happened. I remember repeatedly flipping back to the front cover at every twist and turn that was happening in the script and just rereading 'this is a true story.' I was shocked and mesmerized by this journey."


Reuters, September 14, 2018 - John "Chickie" Donohue and his friends were in a Manhattan bar in 1967, and John was planning how he might help his neighbourhood friends who were serving in the Vietnam War. Veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and merchant seaman, he determines there is no other option but to enter the conflict area and provide them American beer.

In filmmaker Peter Farrelly's follow-up to the Oscar-winning "Green Book," Zac Efron plays Chickie, a fervent supporter of the Vietnam War who spent his time relaxing at his parents' house and imbibing at the neighbourhood bar (2018)."The Greatest Beer Run Ever," featuring stars Billy Murray and Russell Crowe, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday with screaming fans lining the streets.

"Most Vietnam War movies, that I know of, are told from the soldier's point of view. This one is told from a civilian who goes into the middle of it, and so it's a different perspective. I think it changes the tone of what you're seeing and elevates the horror in some ways," Farrelly told Reuters.
