New Trailer for WWII Movie 'USS Indianapolis' Starring Nicolas Cage
"This is a damn suicide mission…" "Full speed ahead." A new international trailer has debuted for the film USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, about the tragic sinking of the USS Indianapolis during World War II. Nicolas Cage stars as Captain Charles B. McVay, who was court-mailed for "failing to zigzag" as the Captain of this ship, then exonerated more than half a century later. The full cast includes Tom Sizemore, Thomas Jane, Matt Lanter, Weronika Rosati, Brian Presley and others. This trailer is extensive and explains most of the story, including attempting to survive in shark-infested waters after sinking. You can still see the first trailer here for something shorter, otherwise dive in to this epic, full 3 minute trailer below.
Here's the new official trailer (+ poster) for Mario Van Peebles's USS Indianapolis, direct from YouTube:
The harrowing true story of the crew of the USS Indianapolis, who were stranded in the Philippine Sea for five days after delivering the atomic weapons that would eventually end WWII. As they awaited rescue, they endured extreme thirst, hunger, and relentless shark attacks. USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage is directed by Mexican actor-filmmaker Mario Van Peebles, of films like Love Kills, Baadasssss!, and Red Sky previously. The screenplay is written by Richard Rionda Del Castro and Cam Cannon. Saban Films will release USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage in theaters in the US, but no exact date is set yet.
