Kate attended last night in Los Angeles the premiere of her new film Man Down which was being held at the ArcLight Cinema in Hollywood.
The film, which was filmed in 2014 and screened at least year’s Venice International Film Festival, is finally hitting cinemas on Friday. It tells the story of a United States Marine who discovers the place he once called home is now no better than the battlefields he fought on while touring Afghanistan.
Kate was on Conan last night to talk about ‘Man Down’, in which she stars with Shia Labeouf. She talked about his acting process and what it’s like to be from a football dynasty – her father who owns the New York Giants and her mother the Pittsburg Steelers: “The good news is, we always win!”. Watch the videos below.
Our gallery was updated with some new promotional stills of “Man Down”, which trailer was recently released. Directed by Dito Montiel, the film stars Shia LaBeouf, Jai Courtney, Gary Oldman, Kate Mara, Charlie Shotwell, and Clifton Collins Jr.
When U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (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 (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. The psychological suspense thriller MAN DOWN also stars Gary Oldman.
Man Down opens in the US on 2nd December.
Shia LaBeouf last played a free spirit in the critically acclaimed American Honey, but the actor’s going in the opposite direction for his next project: In Man Down, he portrays a U.S. Marine named Gabriel who returns home from war to find a chaotic America — and his wife (Kate Mara) and son (Charlie Shotwell) missing.
Gabriel revisits his traumatic past in a new trailer for the film, which also stars Jai Courtney, Gary Oldman, and Clifton Collins Jr. Man Down arrives in theaters Dec. 2. Watch the trailer:
