Film prospects are clearly in favor of music video and commercial helmer Richie Smyth in the wake of his feature debut. Thus, we are brought The Siege Of Jadotville which lands 50 Shades Of Grey and Anthropoid star Jamie Dornan smack in the middle of a perpetual, imminent battle based on a true story, and the result is just explosive and near-perfect if the trailer is anything to hint from it.
THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE tells the true story of the 1961 siege of a 150-member Irish U.N. battalion under Commander Patrick Quinlan by 3,000 Congolese troops, led by French and Belgian mercenaries working for mining companies. Jamie Dornan plays the Irish commander Patrick Quinlan while Guillaume Canet plays a French commander Falques.
Watch the trailer and make note of its October 7 premiere!
