Orlando Bloom and Zoe Saldana are two of the most famous actors in Hollywood. Over Bloom's decades-long career, he's appeared in projects like "Troy," "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King," and "Elizabethtown," to name very few (via IMDb).

Twice have Bloom and Saldana professionally crossed paths. Early on in their careers, both actors appeared in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." Saldana, who later admitted to having a bad experience on set, played the role of Anamaria. Meanwhile, Bloom played Will Turner.

Julianne Moore and Finn Wolfhard navigate the pitfalls of growing up in ‘When You Finish Saving The World’ trailer

After an insanely successful year of horror/thrillers in Ti West’s X and its prequel, Pearl, followed by the whimsical Bodies Bodies Bodies, A24 has further established themselves as a real threat in the film industry. It’s fair to say that A24 truly made a name for themselves back in 2018 with Hereditary, starring Toni Colette, subsequently followed by 2019’s Midsommar, starring Florence Pugh. Lately, A24 have expanded their palette, veering away from hit horrors and focusing more on labor-of-love projects that have a lot of heart and soul to them. Enter: When You Finish Saving The World.

From rarely seen operational control rooms to the frontlines of battle to the chaotic Kabul airport during the final U.S. withdrawal, Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Matthew Heineman’s latest film offers a cinematic and historic window onto the end of America’s longest war, and the costs endured for those most intimately involved.
