First Trailer for Paul Greengrass' Utøya Island Shooting Film '22 July'
"The true story of a day that started like any other." Netflix has debuted the first official trailer for a film titled 22 July, the latest feature by action director Paul Greengrass. The film is premiering tomorrow at the Venice Film Festival before playing at TIFF, which is why this trailer is out now. 22 July tells the true story of the aftermath of Norway's deadliest terrorist attack. On 22 July 2011, 77 people were killed when a far-right extremist detonated a car bomb in Oslo before carrying out a mass shooting at a leadership camp for teens. 22 July uses the lens of one survivor's physical and emotional journey to portray the country's path to healing and reconciliation. Earlier this year, another controversial, eye-opening film about the exact same incident - titled Utøya 22 July - played at the Berlin Film Festival to positive reviews. This one looks a bit different, but still incredibly intense and harrowing and very horrifying to watch. Have a first look below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Paul Greengrass' 22 July, direct from YouTube:
