Nicholas Hoult and Henry Cavill bear arms in first images from Sand Castle

Sand Castle

Set in Iraq in 2003, SAND CASTLE follows a group of American soldiers in the early days of the second Gulf War. Bearing witness to the heat and the horror is the inexperienced Private Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), who together with several fellow soldiers is ordered to the outskirts of Baqubah to repair a water pumping station damaged by U.S. bombs. But as Ocre discovers, in an atmosphere where resentment and anger fester, trying to win the hearts and minds of the locals is a task fraught with danger. It’s here, in the streets, squares and schools that he discovers the true cost of war.

As you can see from some of the images above, SAND CASTLE will star Nicholas Hoult, Henry Cavill, Logan Marshall-Green, and Glen Powell (Everybody Wants Some), among others. Netflix continues to amass some serious talent for their original films and while not all of them are home runs (lookin’ at you, SPECTRAL), it’s still nice to have the option to stay home and watch a new film in lieu of heading out to the theater.

SAND CASTLE will hit Netflix sometime in 2017.
