Academy Award-nominated director Paul Greengrass tackles the true story of Norway’s deadliest terror attack since World War II in the first trailer for “22 July.”

On that day in 2011, a far-right extremist set off a car bomb in Oslo before carrying out a mass shooting at a leadership camp for teens. 77 people, many of whom were teens, were killed. The trailer, and the film itself, analyzes the attack through the eyes of one survivor, who has to go through a physical and emotional journey to heal.

“22 July,” which Greengrass also wrote, is based on the book “One of Us: The Story of an Attack in Norway — and Its Aftermath,” by Asne Seierstad.

Anders Danielsen Lie, Jon Øigarden, Jonas Strand Gravli, Maria Bock, Thorbjørn Harr, Ola G. Furuseth, Seda Witt, Isak Bakli Aglen star.

Scott Rudin, Gregory Goodman, Eli Bush and Greengrass produced. Greengrass’ credits include “Jason Bourne,” “Captain Phillips,” “United 93,”  and “The Bourne Supremacy.”

“22 July” will debut on Oct. 10 globally in select theaters and on Netflix.
