The new international trailer for Paul Greengrass’ action thriller, Green Zone – which reteams the director with his Bourne star, Matt Damon – has just gone online, and it’s a good ‘un.
Stating rather emphatically that, even though it’s set in Iraq during the early days of the American invasion, there won’t be a soapbox anywhere in sight, the trailer is an action-packed affair, with Damon’s Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller enduring explosions, gunfire and beatdowns at the hands of Jason Isaacs in his attempt to uncover the truth about WMDs.
And while there’s a touch of the Bournes about proceedings – perhaps inevitable, what with Greengrass’ patented urgent camerawork and the presence of Damon – it’s also clear that Green Zone will be its very own beast. Either way, we’re so there.
Watch the trailer in its entirety below.
Green Zone is out in cinemas on March 12 2010.
