Ryan Phillippe stars in trailer for The Bang Bang Club

A battle of the South African accents rages in the first trailer for new war thriller The Bang Bang Club.

Starring Americans Ryan Phillippe and Taylor Kitsch as combating photographers, and Swede Malin Åkerman as a potential love interest, the entire film seems to consist of people speaking in accents that aren’t their own.

Though Phillippe has a good crack at both the dialect and the drama, he’s all but obliterated by what looks to be a fantastic turn from a shaggy, bearded Kitsch.

Set in the early ‘90s, The Bang Bang Club follows four photographers who risk their lives to show the world the violence that’s taking place in the wake of Apartheid.

The Bang Bang Club has yet to receive a UK release date.
