Watch: Trailer for Doc About Stephen Lang's War Play 'Beyond Glory'
"'Above and beyond the call of duty' - that's what it says…" Gravitas Ventures has unveiled a trailer for a documentary called Beyond Glory, capturing the story of actor Stephen Lang as he performs his own play titled "Beyond Glory". He first started performing "Beyond Glory" in 2004 - a one-man show where he tells eight different stories of Medal of Honor recipients. You'll see a glimpse of some of his performances in this trailer and he looks tremendous, truly bringing powerful emotions to these stories of brave men fighting in wars. This shows how remarkably talented Stephen Lang is, and it's worth watching for that reason alone.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Larry Brand's documentary Beyond Glory, direct from YouTube:
Follows acclaimed actor Stephen Lang as he tracks the ten year odyssey behind his one-man show about eight Medal of Honor recipients. Also features Gary Sinise. The documentary is directed by Larry Brand, of the films Masque of the Red Death, Paranoia, Overexposed, The Girl on the Train and Christina previously. Executive produced by Jon Landau and James Cameron. Lang first wrote and began performing the play, Beyond Glory, in 2004 eventually performing for troops overseas, as seen in footage in this trailer. Gravitas Ventures will release Beyond Glory in select theaters starting October 2016 this fall. Interested?

US only trailer, that sucks. Stephen Lang is one cool dude, even in crappy movies he is among the good parts...

One man performances are mind-boggling. I did not know Lang had this kind of performance in him.

I like to see when some actor does something, well, beyond what he, or she (actress) is usually known or famous. Kudos for this guy. Although I don't like army and despise wars I always understand and support the motivation to bring something humane among those ...

Yea, well...be careful with this one. With Gary Sinese involved who is way, way to the far right politically I can't imagine this being anything other than some right-wing 'patriotic' bit of maudlin falsity having nothing to do with the truth of being a soldier. I know...I was in the military and it ain't what they try to make you think it is. Most of these medal are so politically motivated and self-serving for the military that have nothing to do with the reality of war and the men who fight in them. Believe me, I know, I've been there and experienced it.

Well Bo, I have to thank you for this. I had sincerely some reservations about this but I didn't want to be a smart ass about American army or actors doing something good. I was hoping that there's some story of humanity about it. But I'll trust you over this. And I agree with you regarding all that sentimental patriotism (or patriotism of any kind), it's quite annoying and hypocritical. Believe me, in a world where I live it's quite unbearable especially when it comes to these small Eastern European little nations with big ideas of patriotic societies. As for the war, that's true, too. I haven't been in one (although I spent almost a year in the army) but I know a lot of people that were engaged as soldiers. Many times not willingly. You learn really fast that people who saw the war are those who despise one the most... As you say sometimes; Peace Bo ...

Well....Samuel Johnson made this famous pronouncement that patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel on the evening of April 7, 1775. That was a long time ago and certainly is true today...perhaps even more so. I held off too as too many people are too sensitive when it comes to flag and country...but I'll tell you, man...I thought this trailer and footage was horrible. Bad, over the top acting and just false nonsense presenting itself as this 'fake' patriotism...it made my skin crawl...Much peace, to you shiboleth...much peace!

I know about that line you stated in the first sentence. So true, so true. And thank you for being a soul mate on this one. Later ...
