Netflix has already dropped eight promos for upcoming projects over the past few days, including Brad Pitt’s War Machine, Alison Brie’s Glow and an Amy Schumer stand-up special. Next up is Sand Castle, the Netflix original film set in 2003 Iraq during the early days of the Second Gulf War.

Not, as the title might suggest, a light-hearted story about a sandy fortresses, Sand Castle is in fact based on screenwriter Chris Roessner’s own experience as a machine gunner in Iraq, and promises a grunt’s-eye-view of life and death on the front line.

The movie is centred on Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), and as he and his troops attempt to protect farming village, Baqubah, in the crosshairs of some very dangerous enemies.

Also starring Henry Cavill, Glen Powell, Logan Marshall-Green, Tommy Flanagan and Parker Sawyers, Sand Castle premieres 21 April on Netflix worldwide.
