Fresh from landing two Golden Globes nominations, including Best Actress for its star Rosamund Pike, Altitude has today launched a new U.K. trailer for poster for A Private War, and we’re thrilled to share them with you first.
Gone Girl star Pike has earned a huge wave of critical acclaim for her portrayal of Sunday Times War correspondent Marie Colvin, in the narrative feature film debut from documentary maker Matthew Heineman, who directed the award-winning Cartel Land in 2015.
Fifty Shades‘ Jamie Dornan also stars as renowned war photographer Paul Conroy who accompanies Colvin on her most dangerous assignment yet into the besieged Syrian city of Homs.
You can watch the brand new trailer above, and check out the new poster below.
Synopsis: In a world where journalism is under attack, Sunday Times journalist Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she’s witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her, along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.
Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A PRIVATE WAR is brought to the screen by Academy Award-nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.
