The first trailer for Act of Valor, the action pic whose cast is made up of active duty Navy SEALs, has been released. The film started in earnest as a recruitment video for the U.S. military’s Naval Special Warfare Command until Relativity picked it up and decided to turn it into a feature film. The flick’s origin makes a lot of sense after seeing this trailer, as it plays very much like Call of Duty The Movie. There are a couple of first-person shots, lots of explosions, slow-motion, and multiple missions. I’m not exactly sure where the story fits in here, but the concept is intriguing enough and I’m interested to see what kind of film they’ve put together.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Mike “Mouse” McCoy and Scott Waugh direct from a script by Kurt Johnstad (300). Act of Valor opens February 17th, 2012. [Update: We’ve been sent the official poster for the film, which is now included after the jump.]
