It’s mine over matter for Antonio Banderas in his latest film…
The international trailer has been released for The 33, starring the 54-year-old Spanish actor.
Directed by Patricia Riggen, the film tells the story of the 2010 Chilean miner drama.
And the just-released trailer includes some haunting images.
Similar to how Oliver Stone took audiences inside the Twin Towers during 9/11 in World Trade Center, Riggen thrusts us in the midst of the miners’ devastating circumstances, displaying the earth falling upon them in the Copiapo, Chile caves.
The miners spent more than two months awaiting rescue as the world watched and numerous countries sent help. The U.S. sent a NASA team and an American driller.
Banderas stars as Mario Sepulveda, a miner who becomes trapped on the last day before his retirement. The film also stars Lou Diamond Phillips, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne and Rodrigo Santoro.
Mikko Alanne, Craig Borten and Michael Thomas adapted the screenplay from Hector Tobar’s book.
A U.S. release date has not been set yet.
