THE SURVIVOR TRAILER
FOR WW2 BEN FOSTER FILM
A trailer has been released for Barry Levinson's WW2 movie drama THE SURVIVOR which will air on HBO April 27th. In Belchatow, Poland on the eve of World War II, Harry Haft (Ben Foster) falls head over heels in love with local girl Leah (Vicky Krieps). When he is sent to Auschwitz, it is the promise of their reunification that allows him to endure the horrors of the camp and maintain a sense of humanity. In Auschwitz, the pugnacious Haft attacks a bullying Nazi and draws the attention of Officer Magnusson, who makes him a Faustian proposal — fight other inmates for the amusement of the bored brass, or die. As the film alternates between the war's years and his postwar life in America, Haft continues his fight in the ring. His intriguing story earns him a fight with renowned champion Rocky Marciano, all in thehopes that Leah is still out there somewhere, watching. Based on the book “Harry Haft” by Alan Scott Haft, the film also has Billy Magnussen, John Leguizamo, Peter Sarsgaard and Danny DeVito in the cast.
