Ang Lee’s ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ Gets A Trailer
  |  @   |  

The first trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk from two-time Academy Award winning Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain, and Life of Pi director Ang Lee has been released online by Sony Pictures.

The movie, which is based on the book of the same name from author Ben Fountain, follows Billy Lynn who is being celebrated with some fellow soldiers during the halftime show of a football game after a battle in Iraq. It stars newcomer Joe Alwyn as Billy Lynn, as well as Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin.

Check out the trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk along with a synopsis below.

SYNOPSIS:

Director Ang Lee brings his extraordinary vision to Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel. The film is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour. Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to the squad – contrasting the realities of the war with America’s perceptions. The film also stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, with Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin. Lee used new technology, shooting at an ultra-high frame rate for the first time in film history, to create an immersive digital experience helping him dramatize war in a way never seen before.

The movie is set to be released in theaters on November 11th.
