Watch: Another International Trailer for Annaud's 'Black Gold' Lands
"Sultan considers the exploitation of the Yellow Belt a violation of the treaty. May god protect us all." Another shorter new international trailer has popped up on YouTube (via TMB) for Jean-Jacques Annaud's Arabian oil epic Black Gold, starring a great cast, including Mark Strong as Sultan Amar, seen above. We also featured a fantastic longer trailer for this late last year, and I've been anxiously awaiting it ever since, as it looks spectacular but I don't know when it'll arrive in US theaters. The cast includes Tahar Rahim (of A Prophet), Freida Pinto (of Slumdog Millionaire, Miral) and of course Antonio Banderas. Take a look!
Watch the newest international trailer for Jean-Jacques Annaud's Black Gold, via YouTube:
Black Gold, originally Black Thirst (also Or Noir in French seen above), is directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud (of Quest for Fire, Seven Years in Tibet, Enemy at the Gates, Two Brothers) and shot on-location out in the Sahara. The script was written by Annaud & Menno Meyjes (Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade, The Siege, The Passion Within) adapted from Hans Ruesch's Arab. If you want to see more than the trailer, Playlist has a behind-the-scenes video looking at the scope of the shoot. As far as we know, it doesn't have a US distributor yet, only in France and most of Europe so far. We'll let you know when we have info on a US release, as I still don't think it has a US distributor, but hopefully later this year. I'm very anxious to see this.
