Watch: Amir Bar-Lev's Doc 'The Tillman Story' Official Trailer
The Weinstein Company has unveiled the official trailer (via Yahoo) for the powerful and heart-wrenching documentary The Tillman Story which delves deep into the story of soldier and former football player Pat Tillman, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2004. For those that haven't heard of Tillman or don't know the details surrounding his death and the government cover-up surrounding it, this new trailer does a great job of explaining pretty much everything. Brandon saw this at Sundance and gave it 8.5 out of 10, saying: "It's a film that needs to be seen by as many people as possible. A maddening experience, but a necessary one."

Featuring candid and revelatory interviews with Pat's fellow soldiers as well as his family, Amir Bar-Lev’s emotional and insightful film not only shines a light on the shady aftermath of Pat’s death and calls to task the entire chain of command, but also examines certain themes as timeless as the notion of heroism itself.
The Tillman Story is directed by American filmmaker Amir Bar-Lev, of the documentaries Fighter and My Kid Could Paint That previously. Its screenplay was written by Mark Monroe (Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who, The Cove). This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year where it was picked up by The Weinstein Company. The Tillman Story will arrive in limited theaters starting on August 20th.
