Trailer for ‘Battle For Saipan’ Military Action Film with Casper Van Dien
“As a surgeon, we don’t arm ourselves during battle.” But of course he must defend himself! Saban Films has revealed an official trailer for a military action film titled Battle for Saipan, based on the true story of the actual “Battle of Saipan” during World War II. The film is set to open later in November, if anyone is curious to watch. The Battle of Saipan was a battle of the Pacific campaign fought on the island of Saipan in the Mariana Islands in 1944. The US had invaded the island in June, taking over to use it as a strategic point in progressing towards Japan. But the Japanese on the island pushed back. The film involves an attack on the American soldiers in early July, following a surgeon who defends a hospital from the Japanese soldiers. The film’s cast includes Casper Van Dien, Jeff Fahey, Louis Mandylor, Jennifer Wenger, Devanny Pinn, Natalia Nikolaeva, Eoin O’Brien, and Josh Riley. The funniest thing about this jingoistic war film is Casper Van Dien, who usually plays the badass tough guy, starring as the sensitive surgeon this time.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Brandon Slagle’s Battle For Saipan, direct from YouTube:
