I think even Damon and Greengrass have given up trying to convince people that “Green Zone” isn’t “Bourne in Iraq” and have fallen in step with the studio to promote it exactly as that. The other big thing about “Green Zone”? If this movie, with its star power and director, can’t sell a movie about the Iraq War to the public, then nothing Iraq War-related will. Ever. Okay, so maybe it’s not that final, but you gotta figure that if this film can’t do it, it’s going to be pretty nigh impossible. Anyways, check out six new clips and about 20+ new images from the movie below.
During the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Rocketing from one booby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men search for deadly chemical agents but stumble instead upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their mission. Spun by operatives with intersecting agendas, Miller must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region. And at this blistering time and in this combustible place, he will find the most elusive weapon of all is the truth.
Starring Matt Damon, Jason Isaacs, Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Amy Ryan, Michael O’Neill, Khalid Abdalla, Antoni Corone, Yigal Naor, Sean Huze, Said Faraj, and directed by Paul Greengrass.
