Henry Cavill & Nicholas Hoult Star In First SAND CASTLE Trailer & Images

Netflix's original Iraq war drama gets a first look.






Netflix continue their bombardment of promos this week with a first trailer and a selection of images for their Iraq war drama Sand Castle. Brazil's Fernando Coimbra, director of the acclaimed 2013 thriller Wolf at the Door, wields the megaphone with Henry Cavill and Nicholas Hoult headlining.

Sand Castle premieres on Netflix April 21st.


The official synopsis reads:

Set in Iraq in 2003, Sand Castle follows a group of American soldiers in the early days of the second Gulf War. Bearing witness to the heat and the horror is the inexperienced Private Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), who together with several fellow soldiers is ordered to the outskirts of Baqubah to repair a water pumping station damaged by U.S. bombs. But as Ocre discovers, in an atmosphere where resentment and anger fester, trying to win the hearts and minds of the locals is a task fraught with danger. It’s here, in the streets, squares and schools that he discovers the true cost of war.
