Intense Trailer for Netflix's War Drama SAND CASTLE with Henry Cavill and Nicholas Hoult
Netflix isn't done showing us what other projects they have coming out soon. Like I said, Netflix is ushering in a whole new era of entertainment. Just look at all of the trailers they've released in the past few days and the level of talent they are working with. It's awesome!
They've just released a trailer for a war drama they produced called Sand Castle, which stars Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Nicholas Hoult (X-Men). The film is based on a true story, and it looks like great film filled with intensity.
Set in Iraq in 2003, Sand Castle follows a group of American soldiers in the early days of the second Gulf War. Bearing witness to the heat and the horror is the inexperienced Private Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), who, together with several fellow soldiers, is ordered to the outskirts of Baqubah to repair a water pumping station damaged by U.S. bombs. But, as Ocre discovers, in an atmosphere where resentment and anger fester, trying to win the hearts and minds of the locals is a task fraught with danger. It’s here, in the streets, squares and schools that he discovers the true cost of war.
The film also stars Glen Powell, Logan Marshall-Green, Beau Knapp, Neil Brown Jr., Parker Sawyers, Sam Spruell, Sammy Sheik, and Tommy Flanagan. It will be available to watch on Netflix on April 21.
