‘Land Of Bad’ Trailer: Russell Crowe And Liam Hemsworth Star In Special Forces Thriller From ‘The Signal’ Director

After it was first announced at Cannes last year, the first trailer has arrived for Land of Bad, an action film led by Russell Crowe and Liam Hemsworth. The film also stars Milo Ventimiglia and another Hemsworth, Luke, along with Ricky Whittle and ex-rugby star George Burgess. Crowe brought Burgess into the film himself. Behind the camera is William Eubank, who has been keeping busy with the deep sea horror Underwater and Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin.

Here’s the synopsis for Land of Bad: When a Delta Force team is ambushed in enemy territory, a rookie officer (Liam Hemsworth) refuses to abandon them. Their only hope lies with an Air Force drone pilot (Russell Crowe) as the eyes in the sky during a brutal 48-hour battle for survival.

It’s good to see Crowe doing action movies again, even if he’s just the guy in the chair manning a drone. Eubank has proven himself mostly in the realm of horror, including his 2014 breakout, The Signal. He co-wrote Land of Bad with David Frigerio, a writer and producer whose last film, Muzzle, starred Aaron Eckhart and was released earlier this year.

Land of Bad opens in theaters on February 16th 2024.
