The international trailer to The 33, Patricia Riggen’s film about the 2010 Chilean miner drama, has been released and there’s some haunting images here. Similar to how Oliver Stone brought us 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 over two months awaiting rescue as the world watched and numerous countries sent help. The U.S. sent a NASA team and an American driller. Antonio Banderas stars as Mario Sepulveda, a miner who becomes trapped on the last day before his retirement. Lou Diamond Phillips, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne and Rodrigo Santoro also star. A U.S. release date has not been set yet. Mikko Alanne, Craig Borten and Michael Thomas adapted the screenplay from Hector Tobar’s book. Mike Medavoy, Edward McGurn and Robert Katz are producing.
