Warner Bros Pictures has released the official trailer for The 33, based on the incredible true story of 33 men trapped deep underground for 69 days in a Chilean mine. According to the studio, the film was shot with the cooperation of the actual miners and is based on the book Deep Down Dark by Hector Tobar and Jose Rivera’s screen story. The cast is led by Antonio Banderas and includes Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, James Brolin, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bob Gunton and Gabriel Byrne. Patricia Riggen (Under the Same Moon, Girl in Progess) directed the dramatic thriller which was actually shot in Chile’s Atacama desert near where the actual disaster took place.
The 33 opens in theaters on November 13, 2015.
In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out.
A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up.
