Critically-acclaimed director Dito Montiel’s latest psychological thriller, titled “Man Down”, has finally released its first teaser trailer.
Montiel, who debuted with “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints”, casted the star of his directorial debut, Shia LaBeouf, as the movie’s main man, Gabriel Drummer.
The official plot is as follows:
“When U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (played by Shia LaBeouf) returns home from his tour in Afghanistan, he finds that the place he once called home is no better than the battlefields he fought on overseas. Accompanied by his best friend Devin Roberts (played by Jai Courtney), a hard-nosed marine whose natural instinct is to shoot first and ask questions later, he searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son, Jonathan (played by Charlie Shotwell) and wife, Natalie (played by Kate Mara). In their search, the 2 intercept Charles (played by Clifton Collins), a man carrying vital information about the whereabouts of Gabriel’s family. As we revisit the past, we are guided in unraveling the puzzle of Gabriel’s experience and what will eventually lead us to finding his family.”
Having made its world premiere at the 2015 Venice Film Festival, “Man Down” is written by Adam G. Simon and though critics did not favour the film, many praised the LaBeouf’s realistic acting.
In the trailer, viewers get to see the actor break down into tears as he recalls a tragic incident that killed one of his comrades and buddies. Other scenes also show gun fights and glimpses of Drummer’s son and wife.
“Man Down” is slated for release on 2nd December.
