First Look at Alexander Skarsgard in The Kill Team

“The Kill Team” is based on a true story what was chronicled in a 2013 documentary of the same name, and made its debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

When young soldier Andrew Briggman (Nat Wolff) witnesses some of his fellow recruits killing innocent civilians under the direction of a sadistic leader, Sergeant Deeks (Alexander Skarsgard), his conscience compels him to consider reporting what he witnessed.

However, Briggman’s reticence toward the other members of the heavily-armed, increasingly violent platoon fuels Deeks’ suspicions, leading the soldier to fear that he’ll be the next target.

Directed and written by Dan Kraus (who also directed the documentary), “The Kill Team” also stars Rob Morrow as Briggman’s father, a former Marine whose pride in his son’s military service turns to concern when he comes to realize the truth.

“The Kill Team” arrives in theatres on Oct. 25.
