See the Trailer and Photos for SPECIAL FORCES
A trailer for SPECIAL FORCES, a new action film starring Diane Kruger and Djimon Hounsou, has arrived. It looks like a familiar bit of men on a mission / high-stakes rescue stuff. It’s interesting how there’s been a sudden cluster of movies featuring special ops teams in the past year. There’s this film, ACT OF VALOR, and the upcoming ZERO DARK THIRTY. It’s absolute coincidence that this all comes in the wake of spec ops receiving some pop cultural scrutiny due to the killing of Osama bin Laden (even ZDK, which is about the hunt for bin Laden, was in production for a while before his death). Sometimes there are just odd convergences of the creative minds in the film world. At any rate, time will tell whether this film proves to be a worthwhile addition to this budding mini-genre.
In Stéphane Rybojad’s SPECIAL FORCES, war correspondent Elsa Cassanova (Diane Kruger) is taken hostage by the Taliban. Faced with her imminent execution, a Special Forces unit is dispatched to free her. In some of the worlds’ most breathtaking yet hostile landscapes, a relentless pursuit begins between her kidnappers and a group of soldiers (Djimon Hounsou, Benoît Magimel, Denis Ménochet) who risk their lives to bring her home alive.
SPECIAL FORCES opens in theaters and on VOD and iTunes October 12, 2012.
