The 'Range 15' Trailer Is Finally Here And It’s Awesome

Entertainment

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.

A top Senate Republican and fierce ally of President Donald Trump reportedly exploded at Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan recently about the U.S. military's plans to withdraw all troops from Syria by the end of April.

"That's the dumbest f******g idea I've ever heard," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) reportedly replied when Shanahan confirmed the Trump administration still plans to complete the Syria withdrawal by April 30.

Later, Graham told Shanahan, "I am now your adversary, not your friend."

The definition of insanity, the old saying goes, is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result — a definition that applies perfectly to the Trump administration's response to the looming national security threat of global climate change.

He threatened to target not only the host countries where U.S. missiles might be stationed but also decision-making centers in the U.S.
