Special agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) has just received the assignment of his career: assemble an elite team (Jennifer Garner, Chris Cooper and Jason Bateman) and go to Riyadh to hunt down and capture the terrorist mastermind behind a deadly attack on fellow countrymen working in Saudi Arabia. The team’s mission: one week to infiltrate and cripple a cell bent on jihad to western society.
No training could prepare Fleury and his crew for the disorienting culture shock they face once inside this unfamiliar world. Strangers in a strange land, they quickly find themselves bound by handlers who refuse to cooperate. The agents discover the local law enforcement more hindrance than help and soon grow uncertain of anybody’s allegiance.
But when a sharp-witted Saudi police captain (Ashraf Barhoum) helps him navigate Riyadh politics and investigate the true cause of the attack, Fleury gets an unexpected ally. In their lightning fast attempt to crack the case, the partners’ search leads them straight to the killers’ front door. Now in a fight for their own lives, two teams on opposite sides of the war on terror won’t stop until justice is found in THE KINGDOM.
Oscar® winner Jamie Foxx stars in a timely thriller about the explosive clash that occurs when Middle East meets West. THE KINGDOM is directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) and produced by Michael Mann (Heat, Miami Vice).
