John Cena Starring In A Serious Movie? Check Out The First Trailer For Psychological Thriller ‘The Wall’

Published On December 9, 2016 » 1077 Views» By Z-rowe »

This week has been a huge week for trailers. We have seen the Baywatch trailer get released, Fifty Shades Darker, War for the Planet of the Apes, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Assassin’s Creed.

But what about the indie projects? What about the original scripts? Where they at? Well, we got one for you. First-time screenwriter Dwain Worrell’s script for The Wall made the 2014 Black List, and not long after that, it was bought by Amazon Studios.

From there, they teamed up with Roadside Attractions and found a director for the project. An extremely talented director named Doug Liman, whose credits include The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow, and Swingers.

And after landing Liman, Amazon Studios went out and got a great lead, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who just recently killed it in Nocturnal Animals. If you haven’t watched the film, you need to check it out just for his performance.

Anyway, so where does John Cena come in? Well, he’s Johnson’s co-star in The Wall. He’s mostly been in comedies or crappy action films, so it’ll be interesting to see his performance in this movie.

In the film, which is scheduled to be released March 10, 2017, two soldiers (Johnson and Cena) are pinned down by an Iraqi sniper, with nothing but a deteriorating wall between them.

The trailer looks pretty intense. I enjoyed it. You can read the official synopsis and watch the trailer below…

“The Wall follows two soldiers pinned down by an Iraqi sniper, with nothing but a crumbling wall between them. Their fight becomes as much a battle of will and wits as it is of lethally accurate marksmanship.”
