Just yesterday we saw the release of the I Declare War poster, and now Drafthouse Films has released a new trailer for the film. Directed by Jason Lapeyre and Robert Wilson, I Declare War tells the story of a group of friends who engage in a game of capture the flag in the woods and blur the line between reality and make believe.
The film is set for a VOD release July 26th, with a theatrical release August 30th. Hit the jump to check out the new trailer and the full synopsis.
Armed with nothing more than twigs, their imaginations and a simple set of rules, a group of 12-year-olds engaged in a lively game of Capture the Flag in the neighborhood woods start dangerously blurring the lines between make-believe and reality. Rocks = Grenades. Trees = Control towers. Sticks = Submachine guns. The youthful innocence of the game gradually takes on a different tone as the quest for victory pushes the boundaries of friendship. The would-be warriors get a searing glimpse of humanity’s dark side as their combat scenario takes them beyond the rules of the game and into an adventure where fantasy combat clashes with the real world.
