Watch: First Trailer for Angelina Jolie's 'In the Land of Blood & Honey'
Back in May we learned that Film District would be behind the release of In the Land of Blood and Honey, the directorial debut of actress Angelina Jolie. Since then the film hasn't made the rounds to any festivals or promoted itself with as so much a poster or even first look stills. Well, the film may just need to speak for itself in the first trailer that just landed which puts it in the running for plenty of Academy Awards this season. Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War the film shows the consequences and pain that results from the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken with conflict. See the trailer below!
Here's the first trailer for Angelina Jolie's In the Land of Blood and Honey (via The Playlist):
In the Land of Blood and Honey marks the directorial debut of Angelina Jolie who also wrote the drama herself. The story follows a struggling romance between a Muslin woman and a Serbian man as the Bosnian war threatens to tear apart their relationship. Jolie has said, "I wanted to tell a story of how human relationships and behavior are deeply affected by living inside a war." The film stars Zana Marjanović (Snow), Rade Šerbedžija (Snatch) and Goran Kostic (Taken) with Film District releasing the film into theaters on December 23rd, just in time for an awards qualifying run.
