Sony Pictures have debuted the brand new trailer for Ang Lee‘s ambitious Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, the Oscar-buzzed film that uses new technology to tell the story adapted from Ben Fountain’s best-selling book.

Lee uses 3D, 4K & 120fps for the new film, all of which we can’t really see in the new trailer, but according to reports, the trailer is playing using the new frame-rate and 3D in select cinemas at the moment.

Here’s the official synopsis as provided by the studio.

Director Ang Lee brings his extraordinary vision to Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel. The film is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour. Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to the squad – contrasting the realities of the war with America’s perceptions. The film also stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, with Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin. Lee used new technology, shooting at an ultra-high frame rate for the first time in film history, to create an immersive digital experience helping him dramatize war in a way never seen before.

Watch the new trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk below. The film is due in cinemas Stateside on November 11th and the UK on January 6th, 2017.
