Andrew Garfield Melodramatically Recreates Part from 'Forrest Gump' Where He Carries Away Wounded Comrades in 'Hacksaw Ridge' Trailer

July 28, 2016


From Mel Gibson, now simply credited as "the Academy Award-winning director of Braveheart" rather than "racist scream machine fueled by drunken rage," here's the trailer for Hacksaw Ridge.

The film tells the story of Desmond Doss, a Seventh-day Adventist who was drafted into World War II but, per his religion, refused to shoot anyone or even carry a gun at all. And though that left his arms free to dance, dance, dance, his religion discouraged him from doing that as well. It was surely a real bummer.

Nonetheless, Doss went on the front lines of the Okinawa battlefield and ended up saving many of his fellow soldiers, and he consequently became the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor.

In Hacksaw Ridge, he's played by Andrew Garfield, who stars alongside Teresa Palmer, Sam Worthington, Vince Vaughn, and Hugo Weaving. Take a look:
