Lionsgate Releases New Poster for Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge

From Pure Publicity (in partnership with Lionsgate Films):

Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of WWII medic Desmond Doss, played by Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spiderman), who miraculously saved 75 men in a matter of hours without firing or carrying a gun.

He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, except the simple prayer he uttered before he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, under constant enemy gunfire and artillery bombardment.

Doss' courage and faith won the admiration of his commanders and fellow soldiers, as he saved the lives of the very men who had persecuted him for refusing to carry a gun. He believed the war was just, but to kill under any circumstance was wrong.

Doss was labeled the first conscientious objector (he called himself a “conscientious cooperator” as he volunteered) to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Directed by Mel Gibson (Braveheart, The Passion of the Christ) and written by Randall Wallace (Braveheart, Heaven Is For Real), Hacksaw Ridge also stars Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, and Vince Vaughn.

Hacksaw Ridge has not yet been rated, but will likely receive a R rating. It's coming to theaters nationwide on November 4, 2016.
