Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk Trailer
The film was shot at an unprecedented 120 frames per second (the highest frame rate for a film to date) in 4K native 3D, to create an immersive digital experience.
“Three-time Academy Award winner 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.
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.”
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2016, in 3D and IMAX 3D.
