Mel Gibson’s WWII drama Hacksaw Ridge has received a staggering 10-minute standing ovation during its world premiere at the 73rd Venice Film Festival.
The movie is based on the true story of US Army medic Desmond Doss, a Seventh-day Adventist who saved the lives of 75 of his comrades while refusing to bear arms under seige at the Battle of Okinawa.
The American-Australian film was filmed mostly in Australia and stars Andrew Garfield and Vince Vaughn alongside homegrown talent Teresa Palmer, Sam Worthington, Ryan Corr, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Richard Roxburgh.
According to Deadline, the film received a standing ovation – a rarity at Venice – that lasted roughly 10 minutes. Approximately six minutes into the applause, Gibson, Garfield, Palmer and the rest of the cast waded into the crowd to shake hands with the audience.
Gibson’s comeback film is shaping up to be one of the favourites at the prestigious event. It is expected to be a serious contender at the Oscars later this year.

Survival drama The Shallows, starring the beautiful Blake Lively, finally swam into Australian cinemas last night. Shot, in part, on location on Lord Howe Island and at Village Roadshow on the Gold Coast, Blake Lively stars as a surfer who becomes stranded on a small rocky outcrop just 200 yards from the shore a shark patrols the water around her.
As the first large-scale film production to shoot scenes on Lord Howe Island, the production team chartered 45 landing barges to carry filming equipment to the island and also transported 100 crew for the ten-day location shoot. Dedicated pathways had to be set into the beach for a single-file passage of crew so that the untouched, pristine sands could remain that way! Filming in open water is notoriously challenging for image stability during dialogue scenes, so a camera had to be steadied on a boat-mounted crane while Lively was held still in the water by divers to stop her drifting with the tide.
The Shallows also filmed at the main water tank facility at Village Roadshow Studios, which is the largest of its kind in Australia at nearly 13,000 sq ft. Tri-Point provided a variety of rigging and truss solutions to the studio’s Rigging Department, and Blue Tongue Screens provided all of the digital screens.
