ComingSoon.net has landed two new photos from writer/director Werner Herzog’s Rescue Dawn, starring Christian Bale and Steve Zahn. The action-adventure opens in theaters on July 4.
In the annals of history’s great escapes there is no other story like that of Dieter Dengler (Bale), the only American to ever break out of a POW camp in the impenetrable Laotian jungle. After months plotting his getaway from a harrowing prison and a death-defying journey through some of the world’s fiercest wilderness, Dengler appeared at his first press conference looking like a dashing movie star and showing neither sentimentality nor bitterness – simply an indomitable will to survive that allowed him to triumph against impossible odds.
