Synopsis: An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs in a film like no other in Hollywood’s history. A fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operations, Act of Valor features a gripping story that takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled, edge-of-their-seat journey.
The Navy SEALs are some of the most badass individuals to ever walk the Earth, responsible for carrying out the most intricate, precise, and dangerous black ops missions all over the globe. Rather than rely on actors to provide a portrayal that could never live up to the real thing, the new one-of-a-kind epic film Act of Valor instead stars a group of active-duty SEALs, placing these real-life commandos in a fictionalized story. The real SEALs provide a never before-seen punch to an original story of globe-spanning adventure, which features some of the most spectacular action set pieces ever committed to film. Relativity Media released the first trailer today, and it highlights the truly unprecedented access that the United States Navy granted co-directors Mike McCoy and Steve Waugh to create an accurate picture of SEALs get the job done, with weapons and tactics taken directly from reality.
No matter how long or difficult the training endured by actors starring in countless military-themed movies, no performer can possibly do full justice to a real-life special operator, the impeccably trained and impossibly tough personnel responsible for carrying out highly secretive precision covert missions all over the planet. The new action epic Act of Valor finds a way around that issue of verisimilitude, as it stars for-real active duty Navy SEALs, the most badass commandos the United States Military has to offer. With a script by 300 screenwriter Kurt Johnstad, co-directors Mike McCoy and Steve Waugh were afforded unprecedented access by the Navy, and the result is a one-of-a-kind action film that takes its heroes across the globe in a race to stop an almost unimaginable threat.
Today, Relativity Media unveiled the very first one-sheet poster for Act of Valor, and its design is evocative and striking in its simplicity and starkness. Not only that, but the distributor also announced details for a wholly unique event that teams Act of Valor up with the forthcoming videogame Battlefield 3, allowing fans the opportunity to see the movie early and play the game on the big screen.
