Russell Crowe’s directorial debut The Water Diviner has already found success in its home country Australia, where with Universal handling distribution it was the top-grossing film of 2014 and it shared the Best Picture prize at the Aussies’ version of the Academy Awards. Now it’s Warner Bros’ turn for a platform bow stateside April 24.
Here’s the first U.S. trailer for the pic, which stars Crowe in the true story of an Australian farmer who, in 1919, goes in search of his three missing sons, last known to have fought against the Turks in the bloody Battle of Gallipoli. Olga Kurylenko co-stars along with Jai Courtney and Yilmaz Erdoğan as the Turkish officer who fought against the boys. Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios wrote the script.
