Growing up in the 80’s, I was a huge fan of Vietnam era films and television. From my favorite series Tour Of Duty to classic films like Platoon, Full Metal Jacket and my all-time favorite Hamburger Hill, I was fixated on these stories of brave, young men fighting for our country and to this day, I revisit them on a regular basis. The Nam has been dormant for a while in terms of being on thescreen but that is about to change as Saban Films has released a new trailer for the latest tale of herorism under fire titled Danger Close which stars Travis Fimmel as the movie celebrates the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who served and risked their lives. Check out the cover art and trailer which was dropped exclusively by Collider down below!
Per Collider: There’s a proud cinematic tradition of Vietnam War dramas in American cinema, but with Danger Close, you might learn a bit about a side of the war you haven’t seen on-screen before. Based on a true story, the Australian war drama follows Majory Harry Smith (Travis Fimmel) and his small company of just over a hundred, mostly inexperienced, Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought off impossible odds and battled a force of more than 2,000 Viet Cong soldiers in the 1966 Battle of Long Tan.
Directed by Kriv Stenders (Red Dog) from a script by Stuart Beattie, Danger Close also Luke Bracey, Daniel Webber, Alexander England, Aaron Glenane, Nicholas Hamilton, Myles Pollard, Matt Dordan, with Anthony Hayes, and Richard Roxburgh. Saban Films will release the film in theaters, on digital, and OnDemand on November 8, 2019.
Facing suicide odds, these brave Australian and New Zealand soldiers faced overwhelming odds and displayed a true courage that examplifies these brave fighting men. The never accepted defeat and fought to the last man.
I checked out the official IMDb site for the film and found an earlier poster as well as some stills which you can see below. Makes sure to check out Danger Close when it hits this November!
