First Trailer For Mel Gibson’s WW2 Epic ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Arrives!

Mel Gibson has been out of action for a long time. And by that I’m referring to him as a director. Since 2006’s acclaimed Apocalypto, the once celebrated director hasn’t done anything much. But if you’re a fan of Gibson’s work so there is a good news for you!

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Gibson’s next film Hacksaw Ridge. The film is a World War 2 drama which follows the life of one Desmond Doss, a medic and his bravado in the War where he saved 75 men without firing a single bullet.

The trailer is littered with classic Gibson imprints. You have excellent cinematography, a war backdrop, and a sense of grandeur in the story telling. Also add in the fact that the film is lead by former Spiderman and Academy Award® nominee Andrew Garfield. Off late, the Social Network actor has been working on smaller films like 99 Homes and the Martin Scorsese directed Silence (co-starring  Liam Neeson). Garfield is surely making strides in his career and the film will be probably targeting the Awards with the Oscar friendly release date and the subject matter itself.

Hacksaw Ridge hits theaters on  November 4, 2016.

HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he 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. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
