Watch the Trailer for "The Yellow Birds" Based on Chesterfield Native's Powerful War Novel

Posted By on Thu, Jun 14, 2018 at 12:30 PM

The trailer for the film version of "The Yellow Birds" is out. The movie is based on the highly acclaimed war novel by VCU grad and Chesterfield native, Kevin Powers, which was a finalist for the National Book Award.

Directed by Alexandre Moors, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Tye Sheridan, Toni Collette, Jason Patric and Jennifer Aniston. Reviews have been mixed; it opened in limited release and video on demand this week. But the New York Times did make it a critic's pick, see their review here.

We recently spoke to Powers, who now lives in Austin, when he was in town promoting his new book, "A Shout in the Ruins," which is set in his hometown.
