Soldiers of Paint movie sceneThe 2012 documentary film Soldiers of Paint takes the world of paintball combat to a whole new level.

The film follows a dramatic battle involving 5,000 people who re-stage the Invasion of Normandy, or D-Day, in Oklahoma. Instead of bullets, the combatants use, yes, paintball artillery, and it’s any man’s game, which means the Germans could win! And these guys are serious. They spend all year preparing their battle strategies (including finding ways to spy on each other) and on game day they come ready to fight with full-size tanks, airplanes, and bazookas—all filled with paint, of course.

The battle takes place each year on a 700-acre piece of land owned by Dewayne Convirs, who takes on this endeavor as a tribute to his grandfather and, ultimately, in support of our veterans.

Directed by Doug Gritzmacher & Michael Dechant Jr., Soldiers of Paint’s reportedly  filled with plenty of action, drama, humor and, undoubtedly, some memorable characters.

Bonus features on the DVD include the following:

  • Deleted scenes
  • D-Day parade
  • Officers party
  • Extra battle footage
  • Promo for Oklahoma D-Day Adventure Park
