Danger Close Trailer

"We all come back, or no one does." Saban Films has released an official US trailer for the Australian action movie titled Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan, made by director Kriv Stenders (Blacktown, Dark Frontier, Red Dog, Kill Me Three Times). We featured the Australian trailer for this military action movie, titled in full Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan, a few months back now you can see the US trailer. In summer of 1966, in a Vietnamese rubber plantation called Long Tan, 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers fight for their lives against 2,500 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers. It's a harrowing story of survival against all odds. The film stars Travis Fimmel, Luke Bracey, Richard Roxburgh, Daniel Webber, Alexander England, Aaron Glenane, Nicholas Hamilton, Myles Pollard, Matt Doran, Stephen Peacocke, Aaron L McGrath, Mojean Aria, Emmy Dougall, and Uli Latukefu. It looks pretty much like every war zone action movie, made for those who enjoy them.

Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Kriv Stenders' Danger Close, direct from Saban's YouTube:

You can still watch the original Australian trailer for Stenders' Danger Close here, for even more footage.

Late afternoon August 18, 1966 South Vietnam – for three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force made up of 2,500 battle-hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault, each man begins to search for the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage. Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan is directed by Australian filmmaker Kriv Stenders, of The Illustrated Family Doctor, Blacktown, Boxing Day, Dark Frontier, Red Dog, Kill Me Three Times, Why Anzac, Red Dog: True Blue, and Australia Day previously. The screenplay is written by Stuart Beattie and James Nicholas & Karel Segers & Paul Sullivan & Jack Brislee. The film opened in Australia this August. Saban will release Danger Close in US theaters + on VOD November 8th.

Travis Fimmel has the chops and the look to be an action megastar.

Jon Odishaw on Sep 19, 2019


They've been trying to make him one for years, and it's not working... Maybe he looks that way, but is lacking something to make that actually happen.

Alex Billington on Sep 19, 2019


For years? Certainly warcraft was a step back when it could have been a step forward but I dont recall any other failures.

Jon Odishaw on Sep 19, 2019


Well, he was on "Vikings" for years. And he's been in plenty of other films, indies and whatever else. I wouldn't really say it's "failure", but between Warcraft and "Vikings" and this one, if he really had the potential he'd be leading tons of big movies. But he's not, and that is pretty much a sure sign he won't be. I'm sure he'll be in plenty of other movies, just not an action star like you're saying. Only time will tell...

Alex Billington on Sep 19, 2019


Well I am a fan of him. Loved Vikings and I thought he oozed charisma even with a cringe worthy script in Warcraft. I hope his big break is still to come.

Jon Odishaw on Sep 19, 2019


You're right about Fimmel, but as you know it's a tough business and getting the right parts at the right time is part of it. He still seems to be in the game, but his time to be a 'star', action-wise or any other, is going to be a rough go for him. I happen to like his work. He was good in Vikings, but I'm not sure he's in Hollywood actually playing the game and that really helps. Yes, only time will tell, but his chances are running out. Look at Jeremy Renner and all the chances he's had. It seems to me you either have it or not and when first coming on the scene that is obvious from the start. This guy will probably be in plenty of movies, as you say...well...maybe....Cheers!

I actually agree with you for a change

Danger Zone Close

i read a book about this battle - it had to be very scary to be 1 of a 100 against over 2000. this looks good - i'll see it.

Looks very derivative to me ...
