BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK
"Since Pi, I discovered that in making a 3D movie [we need to be] adding not
only dimension, but a higher resolution that comes along with a much higher
frame rate than we are used to having. The whole experience is not just about
extravaganza, not just about action-but actually about drama as well. The way we
look at things, the way we want the audience to engage in a movie I think is
more personal. It's much more grand. I think the future is really exciting."
TriStar Pictures presents with Studio 8 in association with LStar Capital and
Film4 and Bona Film Group, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, the groundbreaking,
cinematic event from threetime Oscar-winning director Ang Lee.
With Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, Ang Lee redefines what is possible in
filmmaking and storytelling with the goal of further engaging the audience in an
advanced cinematic experience. Joined by two-time Oscar winning cinematographer
John Toll, Lee employs state-of-the-art cameras to shoot in native 3D, high
resolution and a history-making frame rate that seemed impossible until now. He
creates a new way for audiences to experience drama, presenting the heightened
sensations that young soldiers feel on the battlefield and the home front.
Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, based on the acclaimed bestselling novel by Ben
Fountain, is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn
(newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes
a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a
victory tour. Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show
of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to
the squad - contrasting the realities of the war with America's perceptions
