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.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran announced on Monday it had captured 17 spies working for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and sentenced some of them to death, deepening a crisis between the Islamic Republic and the West.

Iranian state television published images that it said showed the CIA officers who had been in touch with the suspected spies.

In a statement read on state television, the Ministry of Intelligence said 17 spies had been arrested in the 12 months to March 2019. Some have been sentenced to death, according to another report.

One of the few things that aggravates your friend and humble narrator more than hazelnut flavored coffee is Soviet apologists.

Case in point: A recent opinion piece in the New York Times claims the Soviet space program was a model for equality, noting the Soviets put a woman into space 20 years before NASA when Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova orbited the Earth in 1963.

"Cosmonaut diversity was key for the Soviet message to the rest of the globe: Under socialism, a person of even the humblest origins could make it all the way up," wrote Sophie Pinkham just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Herman "Herk" Streitburger was on his final bombing mission and due to go home when his plane was hit by German fighters over Hungary in 1944. He was captured and held as a prisoner of war, enduring starvation, forced marches and a harrowing escape.

Streitburger just turned 100 years old. That makes him a national treasure as well as a Granite State hero.

Streitburger, who lives in Bedford, gets around using a cane and remains active in POW groups and events. It was he who donated his family Bible to a POW "missing man" display at the VA Medical Center in Manchester, which prompted a federal First Amendment lawsuit.

And every year, he tells his World War II story to Manchester schoolchildren. It's a story worth retelling.

Bob Pollock became known as perhaps one of the most dedicated people around Crofton, Maryland committed to honoring those who serve the nation. It only made sense, as the creator of the Two Rivers community monument told neighbors and friends he was a former Navy SEAL and had been a prisoner of war.

Except he wasn't.
