Here’s a first official look at Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, the upcoming war comedy drama movie directed by Ang Lee from a script by Jean-Christophe Castelli based on the novel of the same name written by Ben Fountain:
“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 (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.”
He looks so young… what a pity that going to war is still necessary at times…
The cast includes Joe Alwyn, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Vin Diesel, Steve Martin, and Ben Platt.
The release date of the movie Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk is set to November 11, 2016.
