Universal Pictures and Friday Night Lights Director Peter Berg deliver the action-filled fall spectacular– The Kingdom.
The Kingdom is the highly-charged tale of FBI Special Agent Ronald Fleury (Oscar winner Jamie Foxx), who has just received the assignment of his career: assemble an elite team and go to Riyadh to hunt down and capture the terrorist mastermind behind a deadly attack on Americans working in Saudi Arabia. Fleury’s team (played by Jennifer Garner, Oscar® winner Chris Cooper and Jason Bateman ) has only one week to infiltrate and cripple a cell bent on jihad to western society.
No training could prepare Fleury and his team for the disorienting culture shock they face once inside this scorching foreign land. The Kingdom is a byzantine maze of profiteering politicians and storefront terrorists. Local law enforcement is more hindrance than help and the agents soon grow uncertain of anybody’s allegiance.
But when a sympathetic Saudi police captain helps them navigate Riyadh politics and investigate the true cause of the attack, Fleury finds an unexpected comrade-in-arms in The Kingdom. In their lightning fast attempt to crack the case, the partners’ search leads them straight to the killers’ front door. Now in a fight for their own lives, two teams on opposite sides of the war on terror won’t stop until justice is found in The Kingdom.The Kingdom - Overview | The Kingdom - Cast | The Kingdom - Crew | The Kingdom - Trailer | The Kingdom - Photos
