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.”

The independent film, is veteran made, starred, and largely paid for through crowdfunding. It was also shot in just 13 days.

"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.

“It’s for the veteran community, it’s not for anyone else if they don’t want it to be," said Nick Palmisciano, an Army veteran and founder of Ranger Up, during a behind the scenes look at "Range 15."

“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.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Documents from the Pentagon show that "far more taxpayer funds" were spent by the U.S. military on overnight stays at a Trump resort in Scotland than previously known, two Democratic lawmakers said on Wednesday, as they demanded more evidence from the Defense Department as part of their investigation.

In a letter to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, the heads of the House of Representatives Oversight Committee and one of it subcommittees said that while initial reports indicated that only one U.S. military crew had stayed at President Donald Trump's Turnberry resort southeast of Glasgow, the Pentagon had now turned over data indicating "more than three dozen separate stays" since Trump moved into the White House.

'Agility Prime' sounds like a revolutionary new video streaming service, or a parkour-themed workout regimen, or Transformers-inspired niche porno venture.

But no, it's the name of the Air Force's nascent effort to replace the V-22 Osprey with a militarized flying car — and it's set to take off sooner than you think.
