Following the success of her 2013 documentary ‘Blackfish’, Gabriela Cowperthwaite is jumping into narrative dramas with the true-life tale Megan Leavey and ahead of a release this summer, the first trailer has arrived.
Starring Kate Mara, it follows her titular character who received the Purple Heart after fighting in Iraq, where she formed a bond with a canine. Years later, she fights to adopt him, and judging from the trailer, it looks to be a heart-tugging drama. Also starring Edie Falco, Ramón Rodríguez, Bradley Whitford, and Common, check out the trailer below.
MEGAN LEAVEY is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy.
Earlier this month Kate attended the Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet presentation during February 2017 New York Fashion Week at Highline Stages in New York City. We finally managed to add high quality pictures in our gallery.
Our gallery was updated with digital screen captures of Kate’s most recent project, Man Down. The film, directed by Dito Montiel and also starred by Shia Labeouf, Jai Courtney and Gary Oldman, tells the story of Gabriel Drummer, an U.S. Marine that just returned home from his tour in Afghanistan.
Accompanied by his best friend Devin Roberts (Jai Courtney), a hardnosed Marine whose natural instinct is to shoot first and ask questions later, he searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son, Johnathan (Charlie Shotwell), and wife, Natalie (Kate Mara). In their search, the two intercept Charles (Clifton Collins Jr.), 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.
Man Down is available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes, and the DVD/Blu-Ray will be released next March 7.
Kate attended the Tiffany & Co HardWear Launch Party at New York Fashion Week a few days ago, and our gallery has been updated with images from the event. She posed for pictures with actress Olivia Wilde, whom she later called her ‘hair twin’ on Twitter.
According to Variety, Kate’s upcoming film ‘Leavey’ has been acquired by Bleecker Street for United States distribution, and the company has set a release date for June 9, 2017. In the film, Kate portrays Leavey, a young marine corporal in the K9 unit whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. Our gallery has been updated with the first promotional still from the film.
Produced by Ridley Scott and featuring a powerhouse dream cast– Kate Mara, Toby Jones, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Giamatti– Luke Scott’s directorial debut MORGAN delves into the potential dark side of our increasingly BRAVE NEW WORLD-esque existence, introducing us to a young not-quite-human girl bioengineered in a lab by scientists wrestling with the strange ethics of how to harness the power of a creation which, as the ad copy notes, “presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.”
The film is now available via Digital HD, and will hit Blu-ray and DVD on December 13th. You can find HD screen captures added in our gallery, but be aware it might contain spoilers if you still didn’t see the film yet.
Kate was on The Late Late Show with James Corden a couple of days ago to promote MAN DOWN, her latest film. Coincidentally, she sat next to actress Jessica Alba, who also played Sue Storm in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ken Jeong was also on the show, and the videos are definitely entertaining.
