Listen to the trailer and follow the text below!
John F Kennedy: It shall be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from Cuba against any nation in the Western Hemisphere as an attack by the Soviet Union on the United States. The cost of freedom is always high. No one can foresee precisely what course it will take. One path we will never choose and that is the path of surrender.
Charles: You ready for this?
Erik: Let's find out.
Charles: Listen to me very carefully my friend, killing will not bring you peace.
Erik: Peace was never an option.
What is this trailer about?
Most of the words from this trailer are taken from a speech made by the former US president John F Kennedy in 1962. This speech was during The Cuban Missile Crisis. At this time there was a Cold War between the countries of USSR and USA. Although there was no actual war, for many years it was thought tension between these 2 countries might lead up to a nuclear war. Around the year 1962 Cuba and USSR were both communist countries, and Cuba agreed to let USSR keep missiles in Cuba. USA didn't want these missiles in Cuba because it would have made it easy for USSR to attack USA. Eventually USSR agreed to keep its missiles out of Cuba and the threat of nuclear war was decreased.
