By Nov. 16, two films about the famous, daring and one-eyed war correspondent Marie Colvin will have opened.
The History Channel produced the documentary version — her real words, facts, real footage and real people talking about Colvin, who died covering one last civil war, in Syria. That’s called “Under the Wire.” Here’s the trailer.
The other film is an awards season bio-pic starring Rosamund Pike, Stanley Tucci, Jamie Dornan and Tom Hollander — “A Private War.”
Here’s the trailer to that one. It opens in select cities Nov. 2. It’ll be fascinating to weigh them against each other, even though the doc appears to have reenactors/voice-over people. And The History Channel is best know these days for being an “Ancient Alien Astronauts” conspiracy delivery system.
