When I saw Channing on Monday, I heard from his assistant B that the trailer for ‘Stop Loss’ had been completed, and he was really excited about it.
The film is about a soldier who returns home to Texas from Iraq and is recalled with the “stop-loss” procedure, but refuses to return to battle. After watching the trailer that was just released yesterday, I now see why he was so excited. The ‘Stop Loss’ trailer is ABSOLUTELY CHANTASTIC!!!!!
Just watch it for yourself and you’ll see exactly what I mean. Click here or on the image below to view the fabulous trailer where we get to see a ton of amazing scenes with Chan in his role as Steve Shriver:
Just to remind you, here is what the movie is about…
Decorated Iraq war hero Sgt. Brandon King (Ryan Phillippe) makes a celebrated return to his small Texas hometown following his tour of duty. Brandon tries to resume the life he left behind with the help and support of his loving family, and his best friend, Steve Shriver (Channing Tatum), who served with Brandon in Iraq. Alongside their war-time buddies, Brandon and Steve try to make peace with civilian life.
Then, against Brandon’s will, under a measure called “Stop Loss,” the Army indefinitely extends Brandon’s enlistment and forces him back to Iraq. This upends Brandon’s entire world, and sends him to one of the only people he can trust: his childhood friend – and Steve’s fiancée – Michele (Abbie Cornish). Michele becomes Brandon’s confidante and accomplice as he races across the U.S. – a fugitive from justice in the country he fought to protect – in search of a way out of his predicament.
I so can’t wait to see this movie on March 28, 2008 when it has its theatrical release in the US!!!! And don’t forget that it will also be released on April 18, 2008 in the UK.
