This week’s endless barrage of high profile Netflix trailers continues with this one for Sand Castles:
As you can see, Sand Castles is a big war movie starring Nicholas Hoult (who tries to get out of the war by slamming his hand in car door; if my man watched M*A*S*H*, he’d see there way easier and more fashionable ways to fail to get out of combat), and Henry Cavill, a bit of casting that surprises me and raises this film’s curiosity factor a bit.
As for the movie itself, it’s hard to say what it’s actually about based on this trailer, save for general War’s Hell stuff. It’s based on a true story, so I imagine a recognizable plot framework exists in there somewhere. We'll just have to wait and see.
Sand Castle hits April 21.
