‘Civil War’ New Trailer: A24 Unveils Military Carnage From Sea to Shining Sea

There goes the neighborhood! A24’s new trailer for “Civil War” has been unleashed, giving viewers a new look at the domestic carnage in store for the original action film.

The footage kicks off with an address from the President, played by Nick Offerman, who calls citizens to arms against “the Florida alliance and the Western forces of Texas and California” for their secession from the United States. The trailer also teases new battle sequences taking place in New York City and Washington, D.C. — including a rocket launch obliterating the Lincoln Memorial.

“Civil War” is written and directed by Alex Garland, who previously teamed with A24 for the sci-fi thrillers “Ex Machina” and “Men.” He also helmed “Annihilation” and has notched screenplay credits for “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Dredd.” He created, executive produced and wrote the FX limited series “Devs.”

“Civil War” stars Kirsten Dunst as a war photographer. The ensemble also includes Offerman, Wagner Moura, Cailee Spaeny, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Jesse Plemons and Sonoya Mizuno. A24 produces, alongside Gregory Goodman and DNA’s Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich.

Previous reports emerged stating that the Garland movie carried a runtime longer than three hours, but A24 has since confirmed to Variety that the feature has a much tidier 1 hour and 49 minute runtime.

Unlike the limited rollout of some A24 movies, “Civil War” will hit theaters nationwide with a wide release on April 12. The film is also getting premium large-format play with bookings in Imax auditoriums.
