The first international trailer for the highly anticipated Chilean Miners movie The 33 is here and it features a star-studded Latino cast, including Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Kate del Castillo and Cote de Pablo!
Based on the inspiring true story of the 33 men who survived being trapped underground for 69 days in 2010, the new trailer features Banderas as Mario Sepúlveda, the optimistic Chilean miner who was given the nickname “Super Mario” by the press and memorably said, I was with God and with the devil, and God took me.”
In the trailer, Sepúlveda is depicted as the leader of the group, telling the distraught men, “I believe we’ll make it out of here, because I choose to believe it…All 33 of us!”
In addition to featuring a ton of Latino talent in front of the camera, the film is also being directed by Mexican-born director Patricia Riggen, who is best known for the 2007 film Under the Same Moon (which also starred Kate del Castillo) and the 2012 family dramedy Girl in Progress, which starred Eva Mendes and Patricia Arquette.
Also starring in The 33 are Oscar-winning actress Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne and Lou Diamond Phillips. According to The Wrap, The 33 was shot in Colombia and Chile’s Atacama desert. No U.S. release date has been announced.
Could this be the movie that finally gets Antonio Banderas an Oscar nomination?
