Will Premiere On Netflix In A Fortnight
Netflix has released a trailer for the Russo Brothers-produced Mosul, a thriller about a police officer who joins an Iraqi squadron in their fight against ISIS.
Based on a true story, Mosul follows an Iraqi SWAT team as they fight to defend their homes from ISIS militants, and the film is notably entirely in Arabic, with no big-name star in sight.
Here’s the trailer –
The official Netflix blurb reads –
“When ISIS took their homes, families and city, one group of men fought to take it all back. After inexperienced Iraqi cop Kawa (Adam Bessa) is rescued from a harrowing firefight by the elite Nineveh SWAT team, he’s quickly inducted into the rogue squadron, a band of ten brothers-in-arms led by the wise Major Jasem (Suhail Dabbach). Under constant threat of attack, the unit embarks on a dangerous guerrilla operation, determined to wipe out an enemy base and restore order to the lawless territory. An extraordinary true story of heroism in the face of overwhelming odds, Mosul is written and directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan and produced by Anthony and Joe Russo.”
The film stars Adam Bessa (Extraction) as the inexperienced Iraqi cop Kawa and Suhail Dabbach (The Hurt Locker) as Major Jasem who leads the struggling squadron of men.
Mosul arrives on Netflix on November 26th.
