Watch: Official Trailer for 'The Bang Bang Club' with Ryan Phillippe
"I'm a photographer. I want to hear your side of the story." We haven't heard anything about this film for a while (at least since that promo trailer), but an official trailer has just been released on Apple, which means it will also finally be hitting limited theaters soon. The Bang Bang Club is a drama based on the true-life experiences of four combat photographers trying to capture the final days of apartheid in South Africa. The cast includes Ryan Phillippe, Malin Akerman and Taylor Kitsch, but I can't really speak for any of the acting as I haven't seen this yet. It looks very intriguing, I'm still interested in checking it out. Watch below.

It first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. Tribeca Films will be bringing The Bang Bang Club to limited theaters April 22nd.

I'm never too excited about Ryan Phillipe, but that actually looks good. I love films based on true historical events.

It looks like there will be some disturbing images, but I don't think that will stop me from seeing this film.

I read the book and this just looks amazing. This trailer gave me chills.

haven't read this book, but i know well the life stories behind the lives of the photographers and their images, like the famous Kevin Carter shot included of the starving child and the vulture. the life stories of Carter, Oosterbroek and others are an unflinching window on that part of the world at the time: appalling and yet compelling. the trailer suggests that the film will be, too.

Really looking forward to this release, was on the set for shooting in South Africa, so really keen to see this film. Malin Akerman is mind-numbingly hot in person. 🙂
