Sebastian Stan fights for a fallen war hero in The Last Full Measure trailer
After acquiring the rights to the film late last year, Roadside Attractions has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming war drama The Last Full Measure featuring an ensemble cast led by Sebastian Stan. Based on the true story of the fight to get William H. Pitsenbarger the Medal of Honor posthumously, the first look at the film can be viewed in the player below!
Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) will play actual Medal of Honor recipient William Pitsenbarger, a special forces Pararescue Jumper whose mandate is to save lives rather than take them. The cast is led by Sebastian Stan (Avengers: Endgame), Academy Award-winner Christopher Plummer (All the Money in the World), Academy Award-winner William Hurt (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Kong: Skull Island), Golden Globe-nominee Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Golden Globe-nominee Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Golden Globe-nominee Linus Roache (Batman Begins).
Based on the true story of a present-day cover-up investigation, The Last Full Measure follows young Pentagon investigator Scott Huffman (Stan) as he battles the political machine in Washington. He reluctantly teams with veterans of Operation Abilene to convince Congress to award the Medal of Honor to a courageous Air Force medic, Pitsenbarger (Irvine), who is seen saving the lives of over 60 Marines ambushed in one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War. As the battle waged on, and after the last helicopter left, he continued to save lives until his own was sacrificed.
Timothy Scott Bogart, Mark Damon, Lauren Selig, Julian Adams, Pen Densham, John Watson, Nicholas Cafritz, Robert Reed Peterson, and Shaun Sanghani are producing, with Tamara Birkemoe, Jenna Sanz-Agero, Sidney Sherman, Louis Steyn and T.J. Steyn executive producing. Foresight Unlimited is handling international sales and producing in association with Provocator and SSS Entertainment.
The Last Full Measure is set to hit theaters on January 17, 2020.
