Watch: Nicolas Cage in WWII Disaster Movie 'USS Indianapolis' Trailer
"The Japanese are extremely disciplined adversaries, sir." Hannibal Classics and Patriot Pictures have debuted the first trailer for a WWII movie called USS Indianapolis, or in full the title is actually USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage. It's about the WWII ship the USS Indianapolis, which carried the Enola Gay bomber and pats of the atomic bomb across the Pacific, then later was torpedoed in the South Pacific in July of 1945. It sunk leaving many of the crew left stranded, drowning or dying in the ocean waiting 4 days for rescue. Nicolas Cage stars as Captain Charles B. McVay, who was court-mailed for "failing to zigzag", then exonerated more than half a century later. This looks like it has solid action, not so sure about the rest.
Here's the first official trailer for Mario Van Peebles's USS Indianapolis, originally from Variety:
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.
