FIFTY DEAD MEN WALKING Trailer & Pictures with Jim Sturges
Check out the trailer for FIFTY DEAD MEN WALKING starring Sir Ben Kingsley, Jim Sturgess, Kevin Zegers, Natalie Press, Rose McGowen, and directed by Kari Skogland.
I really enjoy Jim Sturgess and of course Ben Kingsley. And when true stories are well adapted, they can be really great movies. So I’m looking forward to seeing Fifty Dead Men Walking.
Fifty Dead Men Walking Synopsis: Inspired by an incredible true story, “Fifty Dead Men Walking” is a sweeping and gritty thriller featuring Jim Sturgess (21, Across the Universe) in a star-making performance opposite Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley (The Wackness, Elegy). Set in Belfast in 1980 where the Irish Republican Army is waging an all-out insurgent war against the British occupation, Martin McGartland (Sturgess) is a young small-time Belfast hustler recruited by a wily British intelligence agent (Kingsley) to infiltrate the IRA. Martin quickly uses his natural instincts as a con man to get inside the IRA and starts feeding information to the British, saving hundreds of lives in the process. But with each successful mission, Martin becomes increasingly in danger of being caught and exposed. The IRA is ruthless, and once an infiltrator has been exposed he becomes a “dead man walking.” As Martin becomes consumed by his double life, and his British handlers threaten to sell him out if he refuses to continue his counter-intelligence work, he is plunged into a dangerous game in which the stakes could not be higher.
Fifty Dead Men Walking will be released to limited theaters on August 21, 2009. Watch the trailer and check out more pictures below.
