Warner Bros. has released the trailer for the upcoming Clint Eastwood film, The 15:17 to Paris.

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris—an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends’ lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board.

The heroic trio is comprised of Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, who play themselves in the film. Starring alongside them are Jenna Fischer (Hall Pass, TV’s The Office); Judy Greer (War for the Planet of the Apes); Ray Corasani (TV’s upcoming The Long Road Home); PJ Byrne (The Wolf of Wall Street); Tony Hale (TV’s Veep); and Thomas Lennon (Transformers: Age of Extinction). Paul-Mikél Williams plays the younger Anthony, Bryce Gheisar plays the younger Alek, and William Jennings plays the younger Spencer.

Eastwood (Sully, American Sniper) directs from a screenplay by Dorothy Blyskal, based on the book by Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone and Jeffrey E. Stern. Eastwood also produces the film, along with Tim Moore, Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier. The film’s executive producer is Bruce Berman.

    Hopefully the dudes can pull off the acting and at least with Eastwood behind the camera the Military won’t get shit on for being evil. Reminded me a bit of Train to Busan LOL. Looking forward to it.
