We have the first clip from Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden to share with you today. At nearly two minutes, the clip shows the Navy SEALS about to embark on the mission they’ve been training for: the attack on high value target, Osama Bin Laden. The feature-length dramatization from director John Stockwell (Into the Blue) stars Freddy Rodriquez, Xzibit, Cam Gigandet, Anson Mount, Kathleen Robertson, Eddie Kay Thomas and Kenneth Miller. Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden premieres on the National Geographic channel Sunday, November 4th at 8pm. It will also be made available for streaming on Netflix a day after its premiere (just in time for Election Day!).
There’s also a new clip from Rich Moore’s animated feature, Wreck-It Ralph. The new clip shows Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) at his self-help group, Bad Guys Anonymous. Attempting to make him feel better about being bad are fellow antagonists Zangief, Clyde the Ghost, M. Bison, Neff, Dr. Eggman, Bowser and an axe-wielding zombie. Wreck-It Ralph, also featuring the voices of Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk, opens November 2nd. Hit the jump to see the clips.
The first trailer for SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden has gone online. With as historical an event as the death of bin Laden, you would think that either this film or Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty would have provided a sense of tension, raised stakes or even a question of moral ambiguity that surely came with the operation. Neither trailer gives a sense of this, so at least SEAL Team Six isn’t out of its league with Bigelow’s bigger budget.
SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden, aka Code Name: Geronimo, stars Cam Gigandet, Anson Mount, Freddy Rodriquez, Xzibit, Kathleen Robertson, Eddie Kay Thomas, Kenneth Miller, Robert Knepper and William Fichtner. Written by Kendall Lampkin, SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden premieres on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday November 4th, just before election day. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.
While most everyone’s eyes are on Kathryn Bigelow’s (The Hurt Locker) untitled drama about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, another film about the Navy SEAL team tasked with bringing the terrorist leader down has assembled its cast. Variety reports that Anson Mount (TV’s Hell on Wheels), Cam Gigandet (Twilight), Freddy Rodriguez (Planet Terror), and William Fichtner (Black Hawk Down) are set to star in Code Name: Geronimo. John Stockwell (Turistas) is onboard to direct the actioner from a script by Kendall Lampkin.
Mount plays “an agile and assured member of SEAL Team Six,” and Kathleen Robertson is set as an eager CIA case officer. I’m not entirely sure we need two movies about the hunt for Bin Laden, and Bigelow’s definitely has the edge here. It’s her first film since winning the Best Director and Best Picture Oscar for The Hurt Locker and she’s assembled a very impressive cast (including Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, and Chris Pratt). Bigelow’s film is set to open this December, but Code Name: Geronimo doesn’t seem to have a release date yet. Geronimo is currently filming in New Mexico.
