The last decade hasn’t been kind to Mel Gibson. The actor/director who struck double Oscar gold with 1995’s Braveheart which netted a Best Picture Oscar as well Best Director for him, last directed Apocalypto in 2006. Since then, he has been embroiled in personal controversies that acted as dampeners for his career.
But he has been making a slow comeback, first appearing in movies like The Beaver, Get the Gringo and The Expendables 3, and now his latest directorial effort is ready to be showcased.
Hacksaw Ridge tells the story of Andrew Garfield’s Desmond Doss, a conscientious collaborator and Army medic who refused to bear arms during World War II, but ended up saving 75 men during the bloodiest battle of the war without firing a single bullet.
The trailer looks kind of incredible and with the movie set to premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival, let’s hope the movie stands up to the expectations.
Check out the trailer below!
