What starts as an innocent game of Capture the Flag between 12-year-old turns into all-out warfare in the second trailer for I Declare War. Directed by Jason Lapeyre and Robert Wilson, this action drama shows how engrossed these children become in the game, and how the line between reality and military fantasy is quickly blurred. We also have the Platoon-influenced poster for I Declare War, which debuts on VOD, iTunes and digital download July 26 before its theatrical debut on August 30.
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.
