"What more can I man donate then his child?" IFC Films has debuted an official Us trailer for the WWII drama Alone in Berlin, which premiered at Berlinale this year. Brendan Gleeson stars as Otto Quangel in this true story about a husband & wife who planted anti-Nazi notes around Berlin as a form of resistance and retaliation against the evil in the country at the time. The film is titled Jeder stirbt für sich allein in German - which translates to Everyone Dies Alone, a more sad title for how it plays out. The cast includes Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl, Mikael Persbrandt and Katharina Schüttler. I love Otto's ideas, but this film just isn't very good, and I wish it was better (read my festival review). It's worth a look anyway. Here's the official Us trailer (+ French poster) for Vincent Perez's Alone in Berlin, direct from YouTube: Berlin, 1940. Working »

It's 1961, Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba has been assassinated, and civil war in the African state of Katanga is all but assured. A U.N. task force overseen by Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold (Mikael Persbrandt) and his lackey Conor Cruise O'Brien (Mark Strong) prepare to launch an offensive code-named Operation Morthar, the aim of which is to bring down the mercenaries who have pledged themselves to Lumumba's replacement Moise Tshombe (Danny Sapani). Caught in the middle is Irish commandant/devoted husband Pat Quinlan (Jamie Dornan) and his battalion of peacekeepers, all of them trapped in the small Congo city of

"Someone has to write the truth with all these lies..." An official French trailer has debuted for a WWII film titled Alone in Berlin, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival this year. Brendan Gleeson stars as Otto Quangel in this true story about a husband and wife who planted anti-Nazi notes around Berlin as a form of resistance and retaliation against the evil in the country at the time. In Germany, the film is titled Jeder stirbt für sich allein - which translate to Everyone Dies Alone. Much sadder title, but also fitting for this story. The cast includes Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl, Mikael Persbrandt and Katharina Schüttler. I saw this in Berlin, and as much as I love the story, the filmmaking (including English dialogue) really detracted from the film - read my full review. I still recommend giving it a look for the idea behind it. Here's »

In 1961, 150 Irish Un soldiers were sent to the Congo to keep the peace during the changeover of control of the region to pro-Western factions. Led by Commandant Pat Quinlan, they soon found themselves facing down a force of 3,000 local troops led by French and Belgian Mercenaries in the employ of the local mining companies. Even though they were outnumbered 20 to 1, these Irish peacekeepers held their own in an extraordinary act of bravery. Now, this untold true story is coming to Netflix, with Jamie Dornan taking some time out from playing Christian Grey to take on the role of Quinlan in what promise to be an intense, action packed debut feature from director Richie Smyth. The cast, which also includes Guillame Calet, Sam Keeley, Charlie Kelly, Conor MacNeill, Michael McElhatton, Mike Noble, Jason O’Mara, Fionn O’Shea, Mikael Persbrandt, Conor Quinlan (grandson of Commandant Quinlan), Ronan Raftery, Emmanuelle Seigner, and »

"If you continue to attack, we will continue to respond." Netflix has debuted a trailer for a new film titled The Siege of Jadotville, about the "untold true story" of "The Siege of Jadotville". The siege took place in September 1961, during the Un intervention in the Katanga conflict in Congo-Léopoldville in Central Africa when a company of Irish Un troops were attacked by troops loyal to the Katangese Prime Minister Moise Tshombe. The lightly-armed Irish soldiers resisted Katangese assaults for six days as a relief force of Irish and Swedish troops attempted to reach them. Jamie Dornan stars, with Mark Strong, Jason O'Mara, Mikael Persbrandt, Guillaume Canet & Amy Louise Wilson. This looks much better than expected. Here's the first official trailer for Richie Smyth's The Siege of Jadotville, direct from Netflix's YouTube: The Siege of Jadotville tells the true story of the 1961 siege of a 150-member Irish U.N. »
