Here’s the first international trailer for The 33, which stars Antonio Banderas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, Cote de Pablo, Juan Pablo Raba, Jacob Vargas, and Kate del Castillo.
Directed by Mexican filmmaker Patricia Riggen (Under the Same Moon, Girl in Progress), the film is based on the story of the 33 Chilean miners, whose remarkable rescue from the San Jose Mine captivated the world’s attention. The film will recount the events surrounding the mine’s collapse and the subsequent rescue efforts, both from the miners’ perspective and those of the families and rescuers above, culminating in the emotional retrieval of all 33 miners. Antonio Banderas plays Mario “Super Mario” Sepúlveda, “the face of the public” for the miners, who made daily video logs to assure the public that they were alright.
The script, which was written by Mikko Alanne and José Rivera in collaboration with the miners themselves, also details the never-before told story of their first 17 days underground, before contact was made, details of which the miners have kept confidential until this time as part of their ‘pact of silence.’
The film is slated for release in Chile on August 6th, but there’s no US date yet.
