A cyclopean Rosamund Pike heads to Syria in A Private War trailer

Featuring Rosamund Pike in what’s a pretty bad-ass audition to replace the disintegrated Nick Fury, Private War tells the story of lauded war correspondent Marie Colvin. Pike plays the Queens-born journalist, whose bravery in the pursuit of her work cost her an eye, her personal life, and, if you hadn’t heard, her actual life when she defied the Syrian government to cover their country’s civil war. Jamie Dornan co-stars as photographer Paul Conroy, and hey, there’s Stanley Tucci, too.

Designed to get Pike if not the rest of the production some awards juice, the film hits theaters November 16.
