Clint Eastwood's latest feature recreates the August 2015 terror attack on an Amsterdam-to-Paris train and the heroic actions of three young Americans who prevented a tragedy. "The 15:17 to Paris" is out today on Digital HD (via iTunes, Google Play, Amazon,VUDU, etc.).
U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos and their friend Anthony Sadler were traveling around Europe when a terrorist tried to open fire on a train. They stopped the gunman and saved more than a few lives that day.
Eastwood did something that only Clint Eastwood could do: he asked Stone, Skarlatos and Sadler to play themselves in the movie. None had any acting experience but Eastwood's recreation of the attack makes it clear why he wanted the men to be in his movie.
We talked to the guys before the theatrical release of the movie and you can watch our interview below.
The Blu-ray and DVD will be released on May 22nd and we'll have a full review then.
