Against The Sun
March 14th 2016 | Entertainment One | DVD
Set in the dangerous open ocean and based on an extraordinary true story, Tom Felton (The Harry Potter series, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) stars in new WWII drama Against The Sun, out on DVD on March 14th from Entertainment One.
In one of the most harrowing true stories of World War II, three US Navy airmen are forced to crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and have to cling to life on a tiny raft adrift in the open ocean. No food. No water. No hope of rescue. Against incredible odds, these three virtual strangers must survive storms, sharks, starvation – and each other – as they try to sail more than a thousand miles to safety...
Against The Sun is a gripping war drama that tells the dramatic story of real-life castaways Harold Dixon, Tony Pastula and Gene Aldrich adrift on a forbidding ocean with few supplies and dwindling options for staying alive.
The movie also stars Garret Dillahunt (12 Years A Slave, Looper, The Mindy Project) and Jake Abel (The Percy Jackson series, The Lovely Bones).
