Trailer Released For ‘The Siege Of Jadotville’

Watch Jamie Dornan in Netflix’s new movie trailer for The Siege of Jadotville! 

The film’s based on a true story, set in 1961, when 3000 Congolese troops, led by French mercenaries working for mining companies, besieged a mostly Irish battalion of the U.N. Dornan plays the leader of the Irish men, with Guillaume Canet as his Gallic adversary, and Mark Strong, Jason O’Mara, Mikael Persbrandt, Sam Keeley and Michael McElhatton also among the cast, in a film directed by newcomer Richie Smythe.

It could be a gripping modern war movie, but it could also be a queasily racist spin on “Zulu.” Either way, we’ll be finding out soon — the film will be in theaters on September 19th, before hitting Netflix on October 7th.
