The first trailer for Pierce Brosnan‘s upcoming movie The Last Rifleman is exclusive to us and can be seen above.
In The Last Rifleman, which focuses on a true event, Brosnan plays World War II veteran Artie Crawford, who decides to leave his assisted living facility and travel to France to pay his honors on the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
In addition to depicting Artie during World War II, James Keating will also play a younger version of Artie in the film, which stars Brosnan as the 92-year-old veteran.

On Sunday, November 5, The Last Rifleman will be available on Sky Cinema and NOW.
When the film was first announced, writer Kevin Fitzpatrick told Deadline that “Bernard Jordan’s courageous journey caught the nation’s attention and highlighted the spirit that symbolized the post-second world war generation.”
“I was enthralled by this story and the motives that drive a man near the end of his life on a quest to a place that must hold only painful memories.”
The Last Rifleman, which was directed by Terry Loane, also features Claire Rafferty, Desmond Eastwood, John Amos, Jürgen Prochnow, and Clémence Poesy.
Along with Joaquin Phoenix’s mind-bending Beau Is Afraid, horror-comedy Renfield, and David Harbour’s festive outing Violent Night, the film is amongst several big debuts on Sky Cinema in November.
If the plot sounds familiar, it’s because The Last Rifleman and The Great Escaper, which is presently playing in UK theaters and stars Michael Caine as Bernard Jordan and Glenda Jackson as his wife Irene, were both inspired by the same true story.
Starting on November 5, The Last Rifleman can be watched on Sky Cinema and NOW.
