Must Watch: Official US Trailer for Israeli Tank Film Lebanon
Sony Pictures Classics has finally debuted the official US trailer for Samuel Maoz's Lebanon, the film set entirely inside a tank set during the First Lebanon War in 1982. We've been talking about this film since it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year but I still haven't had a chance to see it. This trailer makes me highly regret, as it looks incredible, like a taut, intense war thriller with a unique spin that looks like isn't just used a gimmick. They throw a lot of quotes around to try and sell this even more, but I was already sold on the concept. What a perfect way to end the trailer, too. Looking forward to seeing this! Watch it below.

Lebanon, both written and directed by Israeli filmmaker Samuel Maoz, is about a lone tank and a platoon of paratroopers that are dispatched to search a hostile town during the Lebanon War in 1982 (the same war seen in Beaufort and Waltz With Bashir). The script was based solely on Maoz's personal experiences in the war. As described by TIFF: "Lebanon is a sensual film in the dictionary sense of the word. The majority of the action takes place inside the tank, and a hot, sweaty, rusted-out place it is, rank with the odours of men and fear." Sony Pictures Classics will be bringing Lebanon to limited theaters on August 6th this summer.
