Exclusive Quad For Kassovitz' Rebellion
Exploding helicopters? You bet

Originally known in its native France as L'Ordre Et La Morale, Rebellion sees Mathieu Kassovitz, the director/writer of La Haine, starring (and directing/writing) in his own take on the Ouvéa cave hostage taking in 1988 - and here's an exclusive quad poster from Name Creative to herald its arrival on British cinematic shores.

For those not in the know about the Ouvéa cave affair in 1988, it was an international incident that saw a separatist group from the Melanesian island of Ouvéa, New Caledonia, hold 27 people hostage to demand instant independence from France.

Forgoing a New Caledonian shoot, Kassovitz plumped for Tahiti but kept New Caledonia as the story's ostensible location. Kassovitz himself plays Capitaine du GIGN Philippe Legorjus, a member of the team tasked with fixing the situation, a situation that involves exploding helicopters in the remarkably Collateral Damage-like poster above.

The César Award-nominated Rebellion, which also stars Benoît Jaubert and Pierre Geller, is set for an April 19 release.
