Go Films announced that due to the success of SAINTS & SOLDIERS: THE VOID’s opening weekend, the film will remain in all its opening weekend theatres and open in additional theatres on Friday, August 29. The film is currently playing in all Megaplex theatres throughout Utah and southern Nevada. On August 29, the film will expand to markets all across the country. Some of the new markets include Denver, Los Angeles, Houston, and Dallas.
Written and directed by Ryan Little (SAINTS & SOLDIERS, FOREVER STRONG), the film depicts a U.S. tank crew in the twilight of WWII. On a final mission deep in the Harz Mountains, the crew discovers a platoon of Germans, including three infamous Panzer tanks, preparing to ambush allied supply trucks.
Before the war, Sergeant Jesse Owens (Danor Gerald) was a product of segregation and racial discrimination. Forced by law to ride in the back of the bus and disenfranchised from the political process. As the Germans bear down on the Americans, Owens fights the Axis powers for a freedom he and his fellow African American soldiers have never felt.
With a deadly game of cat and mouse quickly unfolding, Owens and his predominantly white tank crew find themselves out-gunned and out-manned by the German Panzer tanks. Several in Owens’ crew are reluctant to put their faith in a black tank driver despite their dire circumstances. With tension and fear beginning to manifest Owens knows they must put aside their differences to stop the enemy from their deadly plan. Knowing that a victory over the Nazis means a victory for racial justice, Owens and his men find a way to work together to save hundreds of lives in a desperate battle against the greatest odds they have ever faced.
“We are pleased with the opening weekend’s box office success,” said Ryan Little. “Beyond the box office success, we are thrilled with the responses we’ve received from people who have seen the film.”
People of all ages are enjoying the film, the meaningful message, and highly recommending it to others.
“The thing I love about the Saints and Soldiers movies are, no matter what our skin color, what we do, or where we come from there is one thing that makes us American. That is the belief that freedom is worth the fight,” said Tara Starling.
