Trailer: Tank 432 (AKA Belly of the Bulldog)

A trailer here for an upcoming British film. Tank 432 (previously titled Belly of the Bulldog) looks more like a psychological horror than an action thriller in my book, but the greater part of the proceedings take placed inside a tank, which surely makes it worth a look.

Written and directed by Nick Gillespie and produced by Ben Wheatley, the film concerns a squad of mercenary soldiers, on the run from a mysterious enemy, who take refuge in an abandoned FV432 tank.

The film actually premi√®red in the UK at Frightfest, back in October 2015, but this trailer has just surfaced on the net and, if it’s anything to go by, the film could be rather good.

Among the cast is Michael Smiley, who was excellent in Wheatley’s film Kill List (2011), a brooding, but nevertheless manly and violent tale about two hit men who get mixed up with a pack of Satanists, which I highly recommend.

According to Twitch the film will be screened again at Cannes before being released to DVD on August 22nd.

    This is a bit of a forgotten gem of the 80s. The movie is “Tank” from 1984.
    The movie stars manly man James Garner and C. Thomas Howell.
    I used to watch it all the time when I was a kid on VHS.

      Oh yes, that gem. A bit slow for 80s standards, but a satisfying viewing nevertheless.

      • Mucho Macho

        It is not over the top crazy 80s action movie but I’ve always liked it.

    Beast Of War (1988) is essential viewing for everyone on this site.

    • The Night Rider

      Fuck, I love that movie to bits.

    • Jacob Phillips

      Yeah, saw it on TV a few years back, possibly on the Bravo channel (does that even exist anymore?) It was a nice surprise because I’d never heard of it before and most of the movies I’m into were introduced to me by my cousin, whereas I felt I’d ‘discovered’ this one myself.

    OT gentlemen, but this is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest project, “Why We’re Killing Gunther” – a comedy where he plays the titular, arrogant, self-promoting hitman:

    Tried to send it via email but my account got screwed up somehow, can’t be helped.
