Just recently acquired for U.S release by Bleecker Street, Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s war drama Megan Leavey, starring Kate Mara, is set to get its first trailer this week – at least in cinemas. Deluxe Digital have sent the trailer to play this weekend in North American cinemas, and we expect it to arrive online in the coming days.
MEGAN LEAVEY is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy.
Also starring Tom Felton and Common, the film is released June 9 in the U.S., with a UK release to be announced.
