Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon have teamed up again for another high-paced action thriller, Green Zone, and the brand new international trailer for it has been made available online.
Green Zone is inspired by the Rajiv Chandrasekaran book, “Imperial Life in the Emerald City” and the first trailer for the flick debuted online last week alongside Damon’s other upcoming movie, Invictus.
Check out the synopsis and new trailer after the jump.
During the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Rocketing from one booby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men search for deadly chemical agents but stumble instead upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their mission.
Spun by operatives with intersecting agendas, Miller must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region. And at this blistering time and in this combustible place, he will find the most elusive weapon of all is the truth.
Now watch and enjoy:
I dig the trailer a lot but the two callouts I’ve got to make are:
- I feel I know the entire story and the twists – there better been a lot more to the story and twists that weren’t revealed here.
- This movie looks and feels like a Bourne movie… and it stars the same star AND the same director. They really should of just put this in the Bourne franchise since it’s very loosely based on “Imperial Life in the Emerald City.”
Alongside Matt Damon, Green Zone’s talented cast includes Jason Isaacs, Brendan Gleeson, Greg Kinnear and Amy Ryan. The screenplay was written by Brian Helgeland.
What do you think of the trailer? Feel the Bourne vibe?
Green Zone opens in theaters March 12, 2010.
