Nicholas Hoult is a soldier in search of a righteous war in the first trailer for the Netflix film “Sand Castle.”
The film is based on a true story and centers on Matt Ocre (Hoult), who is part of a mission to repair a broken water system in the dangerous and unstable Iraqi village of Baqubah.
While the people of Baghdad welcome the Americans as saviors, the villagers resist their presence and Matt and his unit must try to convince the community that they are part of the solution, not the problem, in order to save the town and get out alive.
The film also stars Henry Cavill, Glen Powell, Logan Marshall-Green, Beau Knapp, Neil Brown Jr., Parker Sawyers, Sam Spruell, Sammy Sheik and Tommy Flanagan. Fernando Coimbra directed from a screenplay by Chris Roessner. Mark Gordon, Justin Nappi and Ben Pugh are producing.
“Sand Castle” will debut on Netflix April 21.

Here are 17 that do, with a few that might be unexpected.
