Official Trailer for Simon Dixon's 'Tiger Raid' About Two Mercenaries
"The end is coming, you know what I mean? Time to get paid!" A trailer has debuted online for a film called Tiger Raid, about two mercenaries hired to kidnap the daughter of a powerful man in the Middle East. That sounds like it might be a bit odd, but this actually looks interesting. Brian Gleeson (son of Brendan and brother of Domhnall) and Damien Molony star as the two mercs, who "ride a wave of pitch-black camaraderie as they travel through the desert night on their way to carry out" their job. Sofia Boutella (also starring in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond) plays the woman who is being kidnapped. It's rare to see a film that provides some empathy for mercenaries, but this looks like it is quite unique. Worth checking out.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Simon Dixon's Tiger Raid, direct from YouTube:
Tells the story of two mercenaries, bound together by a job, haunted by demons from their pasts, and unable to face the truth of who they are. Joe and Paddy are members of a private security crew working in the Middle East. They have been assigned to kidnap the daughter of a powerful man as part of a major robbery – a Tiger Raid. We meet them as they travel through the inhospitable desert on their way to execute the raid. Tiger Raid is the directorial debut of filmmaker Simon Dixon, who has been directing commercials before this. The screenplay is by Simon Dixon, Mick Donnellan and Gareth Coulam Evans. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this year and also played at Edinburgh. Tiger Raid opens in UK/Irish cinemas this year, but no release date is set yet.
