Photographer Phillippe in 'The Bang Bang Club' Promo Trailer
Officially premiering at the Toronto Film Festival next month is The Bang Bang Club, an action-drama based on the true story of four combat photographers in South Africa shooting the final days of apartheid. Starring as the photographers: Ryan Phillippe, Taylor Kitsch, Malin Akerman and Frank Rautenbach. My friend Boye saw this at Cannes (at a sales screening) and really liked it, so I'm interested in checking it out. This three-minute promo trailer isn't that new, but Vulture dug it up and featured it recently, and since we've never written about it, I thought we'd show it as well, especially with TIFF coming up. Watch below!
Check out this early promo trailer for Steven Silver's The Bang Bang Club:
The trailer has been removed at the request of the production. Sorry guys!
Based on real experiences of combat photographers capturing the final days of apartheid in South Africa.
The Bang Bang Club was produced & directed by South African filmmaker Steven Silver, of award-winning documentaries previously like Gerrie & Louise as well as Diameter of the Bomb and The Last Just Man. This is based on the real stories of these four photographers in South Africa as documented in Greg Marinovich's book "The Bang-Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War". This does not have a distributor yet and will be premiering at the Toronto Film Festival 2010 in hopes of finding an audience then. We'll keep you updated!
