Paramount Pictures has released a international combo trailer that covers both Clint Eastwood's WW II dramas -- Flags of Our Fathers and Red Sun, Black Sand.
Flags of Our Fathers / Red Sun, Black Sand Trailer
Flags of Our Fathers: From Academy Award®-winning director Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) comes the World War II drama Flags of Our Fathers, produced by Eastwood and Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Schindler’s List).
February 1945. Even as victory in Europe was finally within reach, the war in the Pacific raged on. One of the most crucial and bloodiest battles of the war was the struggle for the island of Iwo Jima, which culminated with what would become one of the most iconic images in history: five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi.
Flags of Our Fathers is based on the bestselling book by James Bradley with Ron Powers, which chronicled the battle of Iwo Jima and the fates of the flag raisers and some of their brothers in Easy Company. Bradley’s father, John “Doc” Bradley, was one of the soldiers pictured raising the flag, although James never knew the full extent of his father’s experiences until after the elder Bradley’s death in 1994.
Red Sun, Black Sand: Story revolves around the real-life Japanese General Tadamichi Kuribayashi, played by Ken Watanabe, who battled American troops for 40 days on the small island of Iwo Jima.
