Based on a true story, the real men behind the story of The Outpost sound even braver than our resident Scotsman after a few pints of whisky. It is based on Jake Tapper’s best-selling non-fiction book and details the exploits of Bravo Troop 3-61 CAV during an attack on their base in 2009 by more than 400 Taliban insurgents. This was the Battle of Kamdesh in the Afghanistan War and led to the unit becoming one of the most decorated of the entire war.
The Scott Eastwood and Orlando Bloom-led movie has been given a July 2nd theatrical release. The plan is a specialised 500 screen release, before a traditional big-screen run.
