The second trailer for Act of Valor
, a hybrid feature film based on the SEAL ethos that highlights both naval special warfare capability and fleet interaction, has arrived.
The new film stars a group of active-duty real-life Navy SEALs and inspired by true events as this group attempts to rescue a kidnapped CIA operative leading to information relating to a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S. resulting in a team of SEALs dispatched on a worldwide manhunt.
Here’s the official synopsis:
An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, “Act of Valor” stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs in a powerful story of contemporary global anti-terrorism. Inspired by true events, the film combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the minute battlefield technology and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure.
“Act of Valor” takes audiences deep into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained group of warriors in the modern world. When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home.
Each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the deadly terror plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they engage in an epic firefight with an outcome that has potentially unimaginable consequences for the future of America.
Along with the real-life SEALs the film stars Roselyn Sanchez (Rush Hour 3), Emilio Rivera (Next Day Air) and Alex Veadov (Drag Me to Hell).
The film was directed by ex-stuntmen and documentary filmmakers/commercial directors Mike “Mouse” McCoy (Dust to Glory) and Scott Waugh (Step Into Liquid) and written by Kurt Johnstad (300) and stars Alex Veadov, Roselyn Sanchez and Nestor Serrano.
Act of Valor is set for a February 17th, 2012 release.
