Intense Trailer For The War Thriller THE YELLOW BIRDS with Alden Ehrenreich and Tye Sheridan
The first trailer has been released for the upcoming Iraq war thriller The Yellow Birds. The film has a talented cast of actors that includes Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Jason Patric, Toni Collette, and Jennifer Aniston.
I didn't get a chance to see this film at Sundance this year, but I heard good things about it. I like what I'm seeing in this trailer and it looks like a great film worth watching for those of you who are into war dramas.
Twenty-one-year-old Bartle (Ehrenreich) and 18-year-old Murph (Sheridan) become fast friends in army training before shipping off to fight insurgents in Iraq. Taken under the wing of a hot-headed sergeant (Huston), they wander into the fog of war, but Murph never comes back. Bartle returns home with the secrets of Murph’s disappearance held close to his aching chest, while a shrewd military investigator (Patric) and Murph’s anguished mom (Aniston) demand answers.
The movie was written by David Lowery (Pete's Dragon, A Ghost Story) and R.F.I. Porto and was adapted from the 2012 novel by Iraq War veteran Kevin Powers. It was directed by Alexander Moore (Blue Caprice) and the movie is said to unfold "like a mystery, conveying its story in stark flashbacks and haunting fragments from the frontlines."
The Yellow Birds will be released on June 15th.
