Combined Trailer for Flags and Red Sun Online

Following the controversial Academy Award-winning motion-picture drama Million Dollar Baby, director Clint Eastwood returns with not one but two films focused on the epic World War II battle of Iwo Jima – one entitled Flags of Our Fathers is from the American perspective and the other [Red Sun, Black Sand] is from perspective of the Japanese. Furthermore, the individual storylines for each film are based on true events and real people – Flags of Our Fathers follows four brothers from Easy Company and Red Sun, Black Sand centers on a Japanese general who fought on the island of Iwo Jima for forty days and somehow survived. The website for the Japanese release of the film has provided a combined trailer for both films.
