ABOUT THE MOVIE:
The Yellow Birds (2016)
Two young soldiers, Bartle (21) and Murphy (18) navigate the terrors of the Iraq war under the command of the older, troubled Sergeant Sterling. All the while, Bartle is tortured by a promise he made to Murph’s mother before their deployment.
The upcoming military drama with Benedict Cumberbatch is gaining popularity. The Yellow Birds will tell us about the difficult life of the soldiers who are fighting in Iraq.
The plot focuses on a 17-year-old teenager named Powers. It is a hereditary military, so he followed in the footsteps of their ancestors. The protagonist goes to the volunteer military service. Almost immediately, Man sent to hell now – in Iraq. Powers gets to Iraq with his new friend. They go hand in hand with each other, as this is the only way to survive. In addition, one other mother promised to return him alive and unharmed.
Will he keep the promise, and that the guys waiting in the war. It would seem that the guys are lucky because they were under the care of an experienced and reliable sergeant. But, as they say, the war everyone is equal, and no one knows what might happen in the next second. They survive as they can. Teenagers are not the exception, so it will be particularly difficult in the school of life.
The Yellow Birds release date was confirmed
The Yellow Birds release date is expected in early 2016.
DVD release date of The Yellow Birds is scheduled for summer of 2016.
This is interesting.
“Soon” is very odd since he’s not supposed to be free until June. But I guess in movie talk that could be soon.
I went and read this book when he was first announced and loved it. I don’t like war books at all but this was beautiful ad his part seemed like an interesting challenge for him. So I hope it’s true!
That’s very odd, especially that the release date is early 2016??? Interesting. So will they shoot the movie (with yet no confirmed cast) in in the two weeks off he has after Hamlet, and while he’s shooting Strange, Yellow Birds post production will be ready for the film to be released early 2016??? Uh-oh. Anyway IF they shoot it, WHENEVER they shoot it, good for him, it sounds like an interesting role.
Or would this be just another ‘let’s generate some work talk’ tweet? Who knows?
Weird. Unless they plan on filming in two weeks?
If BC wraps up shooting in under two weeks? All that tells me is his character won’t be getting that much screen time *shrugs*. That means more is riding on DS…
