The name A24 has become synonymous with attention-getting independent movies. Their list of critically-acclaimed releases is pretty impressive and so far they have dabbled in a number of different genres. A year ago A24 acquired the rights to “The Kill Team”, a feature film adaptation of Dan Krauss’ 2013 documentary.
The first trailer for “The Kill Team” has dropped and for those unfamiliar with the subject matter (like me) it starts off looking like a pretty traditional war flick. But as the trailer plays out you get a better sense of what’s going on. Krauss serves as writer and director of this true story he is clearly invested in. Alexander Skarsgard stands out as a sociopathic Sergeant leading his military team into some pretty dark waters.
“The Kill Team” hits theaters October 25th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
