The Outpost Coming to Theaters in Early July

-

Fathom Events, along with Screen Media, announced today it will return to theaters with a first-run film this summer with Millennium Media and Rod Lurie’s military thriller, The Outpost. The movie is based on Jake Tapper’s best-selling non-fiction book, The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor.

This exclusive event is scheduled to begin on July 2, 2020, on approximately 500 screens, followed by a weeklong limited theatrical run starting July 3, 2020. Each screening will be accompanied by a special introduction from select cast members and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.

The Outpost follows a tiny unit of U.S. soldiers, alone at the remote Combat Outpost Keating, located deep in the valley of three mountains in Afghanistan, as they battle to defend against an overwhelming force of Taliban fighters in a coordinated attack.

The Battle of Kamdesh, as it was known, was the bloodiest American engagement of the Afghan War in 2009 and Bravo Troop 3-61 CAV became one of the most decorated units of the 19-year conflict.

Orlando Bloom in The Outpost

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Rod Lurie (The Contender, The Last Castle) and adapted by Oscar-nominated screenwriting duo Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (The Fighter), the film stars Scott Eastwood, Caleb Landry Jones, Orlando Bloom, Jack Kesy, Taylor John Smith, Jacob Scipio, and Milo Gibson. Three troops who fought at COP Keating appear in the film, including Medal of Honor recipient Ty Carter (whom Caleb Landry Jones portrays.)

The movie was produced by Millennium Media, with producers Paul Merryman, Marc Frydman, Jeffrey Greenstein, Jonathan Yunger, Paul Tamasy and Les Weldon; and executive producers Avi Lerner, Jake Tapper, Trevor Short, Eric Johnson, Boaz Davidson, Robert Van Norden, John Kalafatis, Joanna Kalafatis, Mark Rhino Smith, and Tommy Vlahopoulos.

“As we lead into Independence Day weekend, we are honored to partner with Screen Media again, with this being the first of many first-run films on our calendar,” said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt.

“Screen Media realizes the value and importance of the theatrical experience as much as we do, so it’s a partnership we look forward to continuing.”
