Alden Ehrenreich Endures the Aftermath of War in First Trailer for ‘The Yellow Birds’

Written by on May 4, 2018 


Alexandre Moors’ Blue Caprice was a harrowing, stunningly-shot depiction of the D.C. sniper attacks. The director made his return at last year’s Sundance with the war/PTSD drama The Yellow Birds, co-written by David Lowery, and now it’s finally getting a release some 17 months later. The delay seems to be two-fold as we imagine the distributors were waiting for its star, Alden Ehrenreich, to have his Solo break-out, and also, the drama comes up short.

Dan Mecca said in his review, “Moors is a filmmaker with immense talent, as demonstrated in his Sundance film Blue Caprice from a few years back, but the beats don’t quite align this time around. This kind of film is important and should be made and made often. Perhaps the problem is that this kind of film has been made, and made often, and made a bit better.”

Also starring Jennifer Aniston, Tye Sheridan, Toni Collette, Jason Patric, and Jack Huston, see the trailer below.

Against the explosive backdrop of the Iraq War, young soldiers Brandon Bartle (Alden Ehrenreich) and Daniel Murphy (Tye Sheridan) forge a deep bond of friendship. When tragedy strikes the platoon, one soldier must return home to face the hard truth behind the incident, and help a grieving mother (Jennifer Aniston) find peace. With a compelling mix of battle action and poignant drama, The Yellow Birds is an unforgettable movie whose power resonates long after the final frame.

The Yellow Birds opens on June 15, with a DirecTV release starting on May 17.
