Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment unveiled the trailer for directer Mel Gibson‘s upcoming American-Australian war film, Hacksaw Ridge.
The film is “the extraordinary true story of conscientious collaborator Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun.
He believed the war was just, but killing was nevertheless wrong; he was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon.
As an army medic, Doss single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers.
He was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.”
Written by Andrew Knight, Robert Schenkkan, Randall Wallace, and Gregory Crosby.
Bill Mechanic, Brian Oliver, David Permut, Terry Benedict, Paul Currie, Bruce Davey, William D. Johnson and Tyler Thompson produced the film through Cross Creek Pictures, Demarest Media, Pandemonium, Permut Presentations and Gibson’s Icon Productions.
Hacksaw Ridge arrives in theaters on November 4, 2016.
