Before the movie started, viewers were encouraged to take “selfies” in front of the promotional slide on the movie screen and post their photos to Facebook and Instagram. The first eight people to post their selfies received signed movie posters.

“Saints and Soldiers: The Void” is set in Germany mid-1945, as WWII is coming to an end. The film highlights the behind-the-front logistics effort to resupply and support mopping up operations at the end of the war. The movie also brings to the forefront the struggle for racial equality in the armed forces as it follows an M18 Hellcat team forced to come to grips with a mixed-race gun crew. Ambushed and alone, this outnumbered Hellcat crew must struggle to overcome differences and survive against seemingly impossible odds.

Rated PG-13 for wartime violence,” Saints and Soldiers: The Void” opens exclusively in theaters on Friday, Aug. 15.

    Oh crap, another mormon mythical battle story. At least this time, WWII did happen, just not this story. Now those mormon battle stories about the Lamanites versus the Nephites (race wars of blacks versus whites) are just pure myth and fiction. Never happened. You may as well believe in Star Wars if you believe those mormon ancient war. Note how similar Star Wars is? The “Dark Side” (Lamanites) with Darth Vader leading the Lamanites into battle against “The Force” (Nephites). Funny thing about the military is that Utah (predominantly mormon) ranks last in US military commitment. Is that because Utahans are extremely anti-American as shown in their anti-government sentiment?

      I never could read much of the B.O.M. just couldn’t do it… it’s just not very readable

    The myth man is correct WWII did happen. I’m glad to see myth has watched Star Wars and at lest listened to the B of M stories, it will bring hope to their life. They also need to check out the study from Bennington and Whilhime 2012 guide to Mil Service Past and Pres. California and Texas lead the way in milatary service alone with none graduating students. They also have the highest rate of gang violence, prison incasuration, and illegal members of society. Yes Myth your life is as Star Wars. You are the king of Uranus and as you speak from Uranus your voice vibrates in a deep thunderous tone back up the canals of your own ureth to a brain that rests inside the bowels of ignorance and fowlness. You must by brave and wipe the Clingons away from Uranus so the the brain can be retrieved and start a fresh new learning process. Before the inner gases explode and forceing your brain matter to end its existence in the Clingons tolet bowl of life. Just saying.

      I know you spelled it wrong, but isn’t URANUS (sp?) a mormon planet, the planet from which Joe Smith came and from which he pulled his fabricated stories?

    I actually thought it sounded interesting. The article makes no mention of an LDS theme. If it is LDS BS, then I have no interest whatsoever.

    Let’s see a war movie with the Romneys as stars. Watch them tuck their tails and run away from the battles, all the way to Paris where they will then say how much they support the war.
