Russell Crowe's Directorial Debut 'The Water Diviner' Aussie Trailer
After some footage surfaced in our first look at Russell Crowe's directorial debut The Water Diviner earlier this year, the first trailer for the film has finally arrived from Down Under. The film follows Crowe as an Australian man who travels to Turkey four years after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons. After working with directors like Ridley Scott, Ron Howard and Darren Aronofsky most recently, it looks like Crowe might have learned a lot, as this looks like a powerful drama that could make a late entry into awards season this winter. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko and Jai Courtney. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner from Yahoo Australia:
The Water Diviner is directed by Russell Crowe (star of Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, The Insider), making his directorial debut from a screenplay by Australian television writing duo Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios. The period drama follows an Australian patriarch (Crowe) who journeys to Turkey in order to find his two sons who went missing during the Battle of Gallipoli in 1919. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Ryan Corr and Jacqueline McKenzie and is slated for release in Australia on December 26th, but doesn't have an official release date in the United States.
