Love and loyalty are pushed to the limit in EW’s exclusive trailer for Oscar-nominated Murderball documentarian Henry Alex Rubin’s upcoming thriller Semper Fi.
Semper Fi is the motto of the U.S. Marines, and means ‘always faithful – the motto also applies in deep friendships, where you are incapable of betraying each other, and stand up for each other no matter the pressure.
Judging by the trailer, such ties that bind are tested when Callahan (Jai Courtney), a police officer and member of the Marine Corps Reserves, must battle personal demons and familial conflicts while attempting to help his younger brother, Oyster (Nat Wolff), navigate prison after he becomes embroiled in a violent crime.
After an unfair sentence, Oyster fights for survival in a dangerous Pennsylvania prison system while Cal and his friends are deployed to fight the lethal insurgency in Iraq. Overseas, Cal’s world is shaken, and after he barely makes it home alive, he resolves to break Oyster out of prison — no matter the cost.
The film also stars Finn Wittrock, Beau Knapp, Arturo Castro, Wayne Péré and Lance E. Nichols.
Semper Fi hits theatres on 4th October 2019.
