In the midst of heightened anticipation, A24 has officially confirmed the runtime for its upcoming action-packed film, “Civil War,” starring Kirsten Dunst. The movie promises a gripping narrative set against the backdrop of a fractured America, torn apart by a full-blown civil war between states.
Contrary to earlier reports speculating a runtime exceeding three hours, A24 has clarified to Variety that “Civil War” will clock in at a standard 109 minutes, offering audiences an intense and concise viewing experience.
The film centers around Kirsten Dunst’s character, a journalist navigating the treacherous terrain of a divided America in the near future. The teaser trailer for “Civil War” paints a vivid picture of the nation’s disarray, showcasing the aftermath of a devastating conflict that has left the once-mighty states in ruins.
President Nick Offerman, known for his role in “The Last of Us,” delivers a chilling message of defeat as he addresses the citizens of the beleaguered Western forces of Texas and California. The trailer hints at military clashes, with soldiers storming iconic landmarks such as the White House and an attack helicopter menacingly approaching the Washington Monument. Dunst’s team of journalists, caught in the chaos, faces a poignant question: “What kind of Americans are they?”
The official logline of the film sets the stage for a riveting plot: “In the near future, a team of journalists travel across the United States during a rapidly escalating civil war that has engulfed the entire nation.”
Directed by Alex Garland, acclaimed for his work on “Annihilation,” “Ex Machina,” and “Men,” “Civil War” features an ensemble cast led by Kirsten Dunst and Nick Offerman. Wagner Moura, Jesse Plemons, Cailee Spaeny, Sonoya Mizuno, Jefferson White, Karl Glusman, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Alexa Mansour round out the talented ensemble.
As audiences eagerly await the release of “Civil War,” the film promises to deliver a compelling narrative within its 109-minute runtime, taking viewers on a visceral journey through a nation torn apart by conflict and chaos. With a stellar cast and the visionary direction of Alex Garland, “Civil War” is poised to leave a lasting impact on the cinematic landscape.
