Trailer: Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan

April 24, 2019
After more than a decade of trying to get this story to the screen, The Battle of Long Tan is finally a reality, with the first trailer launched today.

“Making this film has been the greatest filmmaking challenge of my career so far and I am so proud and thrilled with the extraordinary work of my dedicated team both behind and in front of the cameras,” said Director Kriv Stenders, one of the busiest filmmakers in Australia. “It is truly an epic movie, made with the kind of ambition, scale and scope that is rarely possible in this country. I am honoured to have had the opportunity to tell this significant and remarkable Australian story and to be finally sharing it with audiences.”

Shot in South East Queensland, transforming paulownia plantations in Kingaroy and Nerang into the battle ground in South Vietnam, Danger Close stars Travis Fimmel, Luke Bracey, Daniel Webber, Nicholas Hamilton, Stephen Peacocke, Alexander England, and Richard Roxburgh,  with a screenplay by Stuart Beattie (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Australia, Tomorrow When the War Began).

In cinemas August 8, 2019
