Ahead of its release this March, the first trailer has arrived online for the upcoming action thriller SAS: Red Notice. Directed by Magnus Martens, the film is based on Andy McNab’s bestselling novel and sees Sam Heughan leading the cast as Tom Buckingham, a special forces operator that takes on a group of armed mercenaries that have hijacked the Eurostar with the intention of blowing up the Channel Tunnel; watch it here…
Tom Buckingham (Sam Heughan – Outlander, Bloodshot), a suspended special forces operator, is taking Dr Sophie Hart (Hannah John-Kamen – Resident Evil, Ant-Man & The Wasp) from London to Paris to propose. When their train is deep inside the Channel Tunnel, heavily armed mercenaries, led by Grace Lewis (Ruby Rose – John Wick: Chapter 2, Batwoman), seize control of it and hold everyone hostage. Grace threatens to blow up the Channel Tunnel and declare economic war on a government that has its fair share of secrets to keep. Unarmed and cut off from his counter terror team, Tom is the only hope that Sophie and the other passengers have to make it out alive. To save them he must embrace the unique psychology that makes Grace such a formidable adversary.
A provocative action thriller, the film hurtles from Whitehall’s corridors of power through the English Countryside and the Channel Tunnel, before emerging in Paris and Mallorca. SAS: Red Notice is an authentic portrayal of an emergency response operation and the singular mindset Tom needs to survive. That psychology enables Tom to dominate the battle space, but it may also cost him the only person he has ever loved. With action set pieces choreographed by one of the most highly decorated operators in the history of the SAS, the film rips its way through every crawl space in the Channel Tunnel before exploding into an epic battle between a good psychopath and a bad psychopath.
SAS: Red Notice is set for a simultaneous theatrical and Sky Cinema on March 12th and features a cast that also includes Ruby Rose, Andy Serkis, Hannah John-Kamen, Tom Hopper, Noel Clarke, Ray Panthaki, Anne Reid and Tom Wilkinson.
