The 33 Trailer

"That's not a rock, that's the heart of the mountain - she finally broke…" Warner Bros has debuted the full trailer for the Chilean mining catastrophe movie The 33, directed by Patricia Riggen, starring an ensemble international cast: Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, James Brolin, and Lou Diamond Phillips, with Bob Gunton and Gabriel Byrne. The cast also includes Mario Casas, Jacob Vargas, Juan Pablo Raba, Oscar Nuñez, Tenoch Huerta, Marco Treviño, Adriana Barraza, Kate Del Castillo, Cote de Pablo, Elizabeth De Razzo, Naomi Scott, Gustavo Angarita, and Alejandro Goic. This is one of those uplifting, inspirational movies of hope and perseverance. It's Hollywood-ized, but it still looks pretty good.

Here's the new official trailer for Patricia Riggen's The 33, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube:

The 33 Poster

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. The 33 is directed by Mexican filmmaker Patricia Riggen, of Girl in Progress and Under the Same Moon previously. Warner Bros will release Riggen's The 13 starting on November 13th later this fall.

    All these people spoke Spanish in real life, not English.. So if you're gonna make a serious movie about this event, either do it in Spanish with subtitles or do it in English and get rid of the stupid accents !!!
    • David Diaz
      At least they are mostly all hispanic actors.

        I agree! It actually was okay and worked for me.
    • That is EXACTLY what I was thinking. Why not make it in Spanish, shoot it that way, present it with subtitles. Maybe make a few scenes English, toss those in the trailer... Would feel much more authentic then this. But whatever, we're not the ones with millions to spend unfortunately.

        Plus, you know as well as I do Alex, that American audiences do not like subtitled movies. I actually did not have the same problem with it that you and Tester from above did. It worked for me. It's the emotion and the story, for me, not the language being spoken. At least, that's my feeling. Interesting that you, Tester and another were so bothered by fact it isn't in Spanish. Ummmm.....

      I replied to Alex below, Tester, as I wasn't bothered as you and he were by this film not being in Spanish. American audiences are notorious for not liking subtitled movies, so it'd be suicide to hope for a good box office presenting a film in Spanish. I don't think it would have worked as you suggest to do it in English and getting rid of the accents. Many of the actors are Hispanic so again, I just wasn't as troubled as you and Alex. Oh well.....such is life.
      • Tester
        I completely agree, they did it because of the target audience. I think that's what really bothers me about.. wish it wasn't that way, but it is. Anyway, good to see LDP back in action even with the stupid accent.
        • Bo
          I had to scroll up to see who you meant by it, Lou Diamond....still bothered by the 'stupid' accent part of it, eh? That's kind of funny, Tester. As for this movie, I'm not too sure I've much interest in it. Rescue movies, crowds of hopeful people, schmultzy and maudlin and sentimental possibilities run high in these. We'll see.
      Sadly, and I mean sadly, there is a large percentage of the viewing audience that does not like to read subtitles. Therefore making this a Spanish language film would diminish the film's profits. Yes, I also would have liked to see the actors speak Spanish, but sometimes (all the time) money talks.

    Yeah... the English speaking Chilean miners is a little distracting... Sounds like it's going to be really formulaic ...I'll skip.
    I hoping this can act as a rebirth for Antonio Banderas.
