The new blood-soaked, belligerence-filled trailer for "Range 15" went live on Jan. 26, and it’s what you’d expect from the Ranger Up and Article 15 internet personalities behind it.
Meaning, it’s fucking awesome.
The premise of the movie provides an answer to the question many veterans and service members have asked one another over drinks and during smoke breaks: “What would you do during a zombie apocalypse?”
The two-and-a-half-minute teaser includes at least one blow-up doll, a mostly naked and blood splattered Tim Kennedy, in a ring with what looks like a zombified Randy Couture, and a reference to the final scene from “The Rock.”
There are cameos from stars like William Shatner, Danny Trejo, and Keith David, and at one point, Navy SEAL veteran Marcus Luttrell becomes zombie fodder as Mat Best quips “looks like we’re the lone survivors now.”
"Range 15" will debut at the G.I. Film Festival in Washington, D.C., in May, but the trailer premiered on Jan. 25 at the Indie Lounge in Park City, Utah, during the Sundance Film Festival, reports Army Times.
From the outset, the project has had the feel of a million-dollar inside joke, put on just for service members and veterans and is a far cry from typical depictions of the military community, which are oftentimes serious and somber, if not downright tragic.
“I hope that it does a lot to bridge the veteran and military divide,” said Palmisciano, before adding, “but if it doesn’t and the only thing that happens is that our community has a movie that they love, then we succeeded.”
After a brief pause, Palmisciano continued, “Honest to god, and I mean this sincerely, everybody else can really go fuck themselves.”
Watch the trailer below. This should go without saying, but it’s not safe for work.

The U.S. military—correction, the U.S. taxpayer—is spending more money to buy fewer weapons. The reason? Poor acquisition practices, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
"DOD's 2018 portfolio of major weapon programs has grown in cost by $8 billion, but contains four fewer systems than last year," GAO found.
He's an Oklahoman and an Air Force vet, an actor and martial artist. The intensity of his badassery formed the basis of one of the earliest and most ubiquitous internet memes. He's a fictional member of Delta Force and a Texas Ranger, his beard a source of such virile endurance and strength that it makes Samson's biblical mane look like a bouquet of hobo pubes.
Now, Norris will live forever as the ultimate instrument of righteousness: an M1 Abrams tank.
