Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions has released the trailer (below) for its new movie starring John Cena and Aaron Taylor Johnson.  The Wall is a psychological thriller set in Iraq that puts a US Sniper Tandem against a Sniper that has more in mind than just killing.  The trailer reminds me of a combination of some older movies like Enemy At The Gates and Phone Booth.  John Cena  continues his transition from WWE Superstar to Movie Star in his first film as the main actor since The Reunion.   John has seen success in Hollywood playing smaller roles in major movies like Trainwreck and Daddy’s Home over the past year.  Also starring in this movie is Aaron Taylor Johnson who has seen his rise in fame since starring in films like Kick-Ass, Godzilla, and Avengers: Age of Ultron as Quicksilver.  Look for The Wall to hit theaters May 12, 2017.  

“The Wall” is a deadly psychological thriller that follows two soldiers pinned down by an Iraqi sniper, with nothing but a crumbling wall between them. Their fight becomes as much a battle of will and wits as it is of lethally accurate marksmanship.  Directed by Doug Liman (“Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Edge of Tomorrow”), “The Wall” stars Aaron Taylor Johnson (“Nocturnal Animals,” “Kick-Ass,” “Savages” “Godzilla,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron”) and WWE starJohn Cena (“Trainwreck,” “Sisters,” “Daddy’s Home”), and is written by first-time screenwriter Dwain Worrell from his Black List script.  â€œThe Wall” is produced by Amazon Studios.
