WATCH: New Trailer for ‘Hacksaw Ridge,’ Mel Gibson’s Tale of WWII Pacifist Medic

By Mark Judge | July 29, 2016 | 12:13pm EDT

Lions Gate has just released a trailer for “Hacksaw Ridge,” the forthcoming film directed by Mel Gibson. It tells the true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield), a conscientious objector who served in World War II by rescuing wounded soldiers. In Okinawa Doss saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun.

The film follows Doss from his childhood in Lynchburg, Virginia to the battlefield on Okinawa. According to Time magazine, “His love story with a local nurse (because Hollywood) and his Christian faith (because Mel Gibson) feature prominently.”

"Hacksaw Ridge" opens November 4.
