After directing one of the most entertaining sci-fi films of the century thus far with Edge of Tomorrow, Doug Liman quickly got back into the Tom Cruise business with American Made. While that film won’t arrive until this fall, we’ll soon be getting another feature from the director, The Wall, and today the first trailer has landed.
Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena, the Amazon Studios project is a war film, but rather than taking on an epic scope, it centers on two soldiers pinned down by a sniper during the Iraq War. Liman has expertise in ratcheting up the tension with his prior work on The Bourne Identity, so hopefully this small-scale thriller is an early-year surprise. Check out the first trailer below.
“The Wall” is a deadly psychological thriller that follows two soldiers pinned down by an Iraqi sniper, with nothing but a crumbling wall between them. Their fight becomes as much a battle of will and wits as it is of lethally accurate marksmanship.
The Wall opens on March 10, 2017.
