Thank You for Your Service Trailer

"Don't let these young guys see you fold." Yet another PTSD movie, here we go again. Universal has debuted the trailer for a film called Thank You for Your Service, about Iraq war soldiers who have trouble fitting in once they return home. Sound familiar? It's because we've seen way too many of these "Iraq war soldier has trouble returning home" movies, they're a dime a dozen nowadays, always the telling the same story. Thank You for Your Service stars Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Beulah Koale, Amy Schumer, Kate Lyn Sheil, and Scott Haze, which is quite an intriguing cast. This looks much better than Battle Scars, but still looks the same. The best part of this is the hanging dog tags in the title card at the end, but that's it.

Here's the first official trailer for Jason Hall's Thank You for Your Service, originally from USA Today:

Thank You for Your Service follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield. Thank You for Your Service is directed by filmmaker Jason Hall, making his directorial debut after working as a screenwriter/actor for years previously. The screenplay is written by Jason Hall (Spread, Paranoia, American Sniper), based on the book by David Finkel. Universal will release Thank You for Your Service in theaters everywhere staring on October 27th this fall. Anyone?

It could be interesting if it would be an antiwar message. Other than that, I was only paying attention to beatiful women in this ...

Keisha Castle-Hughes, man. She got nominated for an Academy Award at the age of 13 for "Whale Rider".

Thanks. I wasn't really paying attention who was in there. So yes, she's more than a pretty face, I agree. But this films doesn't look that good to be saved by any actress (or actor), no matter how good they are. That's my point here ...

I see.

Terrible title...

I don't know Alex...I see important subtle differences in the trailer that, if expanded on, may help it distinguish from other modern war films. That being said, I think we can expect many "modern" war films for many more years to come. There are far too many stories that shouldn't be left on the battlefield.

You forgot to mention Keisha Castle-Hughes, Alex. Even if folks say she sucked on "Game of Thrones", still, one has to see her breakthrough performance in "Whale Rider", at the age of 11 (which garnered her an Oscar nomination at the age of 13, the youngest ever at the time) to see that she is, in fact, a big deal. She was also good in "Walking Dead", by the way...

Your comments of yet another PTSD movie, here we go again That these movies are a dime a dozen nowadays, always the telling the same story. Have you known someone or have a love one deal with this? Have you known a soldier take their life, if be by gun or by slow suicide by drinking till their liver kills them? Have you fought to be in the persons life, until it takes a toll on your health and have to walk away. Then you have to deal with walking away from them and their situation. Have you dealt with your guilt after they die for not being there, even though you had to save yourself. Until you have done this or other things pertaining to PTSD, don't you dare say another dime a dozen movie. My heart breaks for all of our military and the emotional disability that noone can see. If you lost limbs, or mental illness, I thank you for the sacrifice you gave to your country. To the families that your loved one gave the ultimate sacrifice, I am sorry for your loss.

Yeah... The service doesn't properly decompress and wind down guys leaving the service, at least not as far as I've heard from veterans. And when you have a guy who may have been killing men in hand to hand combat or shooting other men to survive at the start of a week in civilian society later that week, there are going to be problems.
