Watch Real Navy SEALs Go To Work In New Act Of Valor Behind The Scenes Featurette

Act of Valor isn't just your typical military movie. Most that you see feature actors who have trained for months on end to try and seem like real soldiers fighting in a fake army. The stars of Act of Valor, on the other hand, didn't need any movie training. No, the cast of the new film from directors Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh has a cast that largely consists of real active-duty Navy SEALs using the skills taught to them by the United States government. The film isn't due out until February 24th, but tonight we have a brand new feauturette for you that goes behind the scenes of the movie and introduces us to the silver screen newbies.

Check it out below, courtesy of Hulu (apologizes in advance to our international friends).

In addition to the real-life soldiers, the movie also stars Roselyn Sanchez, Alex Veadov, Jason Cottle, and Nestor Serrano. The plot follows the American warriors as they venture into enemy territory to rescue a kidnapped CIA agent. Upon saving them, however, they learn of a deadly terrorist attack against the US. Together they most go on a global manhunt to find those responsible before it's too late. The read more and see more, head on over to our Blend Film Database.
