‘The Survivor’ Trailer: Ben Foster is Boxer Harry Haft

HBO has released an official trailer for The Survivor, based on Alan Haft’s book Harry Haft: Survivor of Auschwitz. Let’s take a look.

Ben Foster, who I haven’t seen in a lot lately, looks to be delivering a great performance as Haft. I will definitely need to check this one out.

In addition to Foster, The Survivor stars Vicky Krieps, Billy Magnussen, Peter Sarsgaard, John Leguizamo, and Danny DeVito.

Plot Synopsis:

When the Nazis invade Poland in late 1939, Harry Haft (Foster) is sent to the Auschwitz extermination camp. He is a powerfully built man, so a charming but sadistic Nazi officer offers him an impossible deal: fight fellow prisoners in the boxing ring for the amusement of his captors, or die. The winner of the bout survives to fight again. The loser is shot or sent to the gas chamber. How far will Harry’s will to live take him? What will he do to escape the death all around him?

The Survivor begins streaming April 27, 2022 on HBO Max.

What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
