The World War II movie "Recon" will screen in movie theaters all over America for just one day on Nov. 10, and we'll be celebrating the event on Monday, Nov. 9, with a Facebook Live event.

We'll be live with the movie's writer/director Robert David Port (Oscar winner for the 2003 documentary short "Twin Towers"), novelist Richard Bausch (an Air Force veteran whose book "Peace" is the basis for the movie) and producer Richard Bullock. We're hoping for a surprise special guest from the film, but you'll have to tune in to find out about that.

"Recon" follows four American soldiers over the course of a day after they're sent on a possible suicide mission over a mountain. They're led by an old Italian partisan and can't be sure of his loyalties. The men witnessed their sergeant kill an Italian civilian just before this assignment, so no one really knows whether they're supposed to succeed or perish.

The film stars Alexander Ludwig ("Vikings") and Sam Keeley ("68 Whiskey") as American soldiers and the great Franco Nero (the original "Django" himself, "Die Hard 2," "Django Unchained," "John Wick: Chapter 2") as the old man who leads them on their mission.

If you want to see the movie in person Nov. 10, check the Fathom Events website for a full list of theaters.
