The Daily Wire, one of America’s leading sources of news and conservative commentary, announced today the launch of the first feature film on its platform, Run Hide Fight. The company acquired the North American distribution rights to the action thriller, which was written and directed by Kyle Rankin and produced by Texas-based filmmakers Dallas Sonnier and Amanda Presmyk. The movie electrified audiences at the 2020 Venice Film Festival and will be available on DailyWire.com. The film’s trailer can be seen at YouTube.com/TheDailyWire.

The film will premiere during a Daily Wire Backstage special hosted by Daily Wire co-founder Ben Shapiro, co-CEO Jeremy Boreing, and special guests on January 14, 2021, that will be live-streamed on DailyWire.com and YouTube. After the premiere, Daily Wire members can watch the movie at RunHideFightMovie.com.

Run Hide Fight is The Daily Wire’s first major film acquisition. Linking up with Sonnier — a prolific movie producer is best known for the critically-acclaimed Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99, and Dragged Across Concrete, and profiled in a 2018 piece by the Wall Street Journal, titled “Making Movies in the Trump Era for the Audience Hollywood Ignored” — was a natural fit for The Daily Wire’s foray into movies. Sonnier is launching his new production banner, BONFIRE LEGEND, with the release of Run Hide Fight. Sonnier was drawn to The Daily Wire’s subscriber-based business model and its ability to deliver premium entertainment to millions of loyal readers, listeners, and viewers.

Starring Thomas Jane, Radha Mitchell, and Isabel May, Run Hide Fight drops viewers into a day in the life of Zoe Hull, a 17-year-old high school senior who’s working through unresolved issues stemming from the loss of her mother to cancer. Zoe is just a couple of weeks shy of graduating when four heavily armed classmates storm her high school’s cafeteria to perpetrate the worst mass shooting in history.

Following the Department of Homeland Security’s protocols for active shootings, Zoe runs and hides from her gun-toting classmates and manages to escape, until she realizes she’s uniquely prepared to face down the shooters and fight to save lives.

“Run Hide Fight is ultimately a movie about courage in the face of evil,” said Boreing. “The Columbine massacre was a transformative moment for our country, and for me politically. It was the first time I saw how the media can form a narrative, in complete contravention of the facts, and have that narrative become the dominant perspective on a consequential event.”
