Based on the true events of August 2010, the movie recounts an epic tragedy where 33 Chilean miners are trapped at the bottom of a gold and copper mine in Copiapo.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment have released the first trailer for drama "The 33". The film is based on the true story about rescuing 33 Chilean workers who became trapped at the bottom of a gold and copper mine in Copiapo, Chile for 69 days.
The trailer shows the 33 men entering the old copper-gold mine. They are 700 meters underground when the mine starts shaking and finally crumbling away. The collapse of the mine is followed by a massive explosion which makes people outside the mine notice the tragedy.
All of the 33 miners survive the collapse, still alive deep beneath the ground. They find a giant rock, twice the size of Empire State Building, which blocks the way to exit the mine. "That's not a rock, that's the heart of the mountain. She finally broke," someone says.
Being trapped for weeks, with insufficient supply of foods and water, the miners are pessimistic about the rescue. "You're my brother, we're gonna pulled together to get out of here," Antonio Banderas' character encourages his fellow miners. The movie also depicts the courage of both the miners and their families who refuse to give up.
Banderas leads the cast which also includes Juliette Binoche, Cote de Pablo, Rodrigo Santoro and Martin Sheen. Patricia Riggen is directing while the script is written by Craig Borten. Produced by Mike Medavoy and Ed McGurn, the fact-based drama is slated for a U.S. release on November 13.
