Director Renny Harlin covers the brief Russia-Georgia clash in the trailer for 5 Days of War
Although best known for his early action extravaganzas like CLIFFHANGER, DIE HARD 2 and LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, director Renny Harlin has been traveling dangerously close to direct-to-DVD material in the past few years (CLEANER, THE COVENANT). Perhaps trying to reinvent himself, Harlin decided to take on a gritty real-life war drama -- albeit complete with some of his trademark over-the-top explosive action. And his MINDHUNTERS co-star Val Kilmer.
Synopsis: 5 DAYS OF WAR is an action-packed international thriller from acclaimed director, Renny Harlin. Based on true events, this intense film is a vivid account of a renegade American journalist, his cameraman and a local woman caught behind enemy lines, and determined to not only survive, but tell the world what was happening, during the swift but devastating 5-day war between Russian and the Georgian Republic in 2008.
