First the video, then some backstory. Key quote: “It’s not as black-and-white as they said it was going to be.”
“Camp X-Ray” will hit theaters Oct. 17, and despite multiple stories in the entertainment media praising star Kristen Stewart for this departure from the vampire-vs.-werewolf genre, the buzz hasn’t been particularly kind. The film is batting just above .500 with critics on Rotten Tomatoes, with one asking whether stellar efforts from Stewart and co-star Peyman Maadi “outweigh a scenario that feels written by a politically outraged 12-year-old.”
The above trailer, however, has drawn some interest — more than 3.5 million YouTube hits since going online four days ago.
We want to know what you think: Will you be heading to the multiplex to see Stewart don camo and deal with detainees? Or will you pass on Hollywood’s version of Army life at Guantanamo Bay? Let us know in the comments below.
