The new trailer for writer/director Stuart Townsend’s Battle in Seattle, which will kick-off the Seattle International Film Festival, is now online. The action-drama stars Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, Ray Liotta, Martin Henderson, Michelle Rodriguez, Andre Benjamin, Connie Nielsen, and Channing Tatum.
Based on one of the most incendiary political uprisings in a generation, the film takes an in-depth look at the five days that rocked the world in 1999 as tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in protest of the World Trade Organization. What began as a peaceful protest intended to stop the WTO talks quickly escalated into a full-scale riot and eventual State of Emergency that squared off peaceful and unarmed protestors against the Seattle Police Department and the National Guard.
