The USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage Trailer Is a Titanic and Jaws War Hybrid

By

The worst naval disaster in American history will soon be coming to the big screen. USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage starring an ensemble cast that includes Nicolas Cage, Tom Sizemore, and Thomas Jane depicts the true story of the USS Indianapolis and its crew, who were stranded for five excruciatingly long days in the Philippine Sea after delivering World War II–ending atomic weapons. A Japanese submarine successfully torpedoed and sunk the ship following the crew's secret mission, and as they awaited rescue with nothing more than a few dinghies and life preservers, they were forced to endure starvation, dehydration, and even an abundance of shark attacks. Harrowing is an understatement.
