Bleecker Street has released the trailer and poster for the military drama Megan Leavey, starring Kate Mara.

Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite from a screenplay by Pamela Gray and Annie Mumolo & Tim Lovestedt, the film co-stars Edie Falco, Ramón Rodríguez, Bradley Whitford, and Common.

Megan Leavey is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy.

Leavey received a Purple Heart and was honorable discharged after her recovery, while Rex was kept on active duty. Leavey spent the next five years fighting to adopt the dog even while Rex was scheduled to be euthanized after developing a palsy.

Common plays the role of Sgt. Gunney Massey, the Gunnery Sergeant in charge of the kennels at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.

Megan Leavey hits theaters on June 9.
