First International Trailer for Werner Herzog's New Film 'Salt and Fire'
"Is it possible that there is something all pervading all around us which we are incapable of seeing?" Allocine has released a French trailer for the new Werner Herzog feature film Salt and Fire. This is the third film from Herzog this year, which is pretty damn impressive. The other two are documentaries - Lo and Behold about the internet, and Into the Inferno about volcanoes. Salt and Fire is also about a volcano and the environment, the story of a scientist who accuses a government of causing an ecological disaster. The cast includes Michael Shannon, Gael García Bernal, Veronica Ferres, Lawrence Krauss, and apparently Herzog himself in some role. I really loved Into the Inferno, and maybe Herzog stumbled upon a good story working on that film, I just hope this is better than the abysmal Queen of the Desert. Take a look.
Here's the first French trailer for Werner Herzog's Salt and Fire, posted by Allocine (via The Playlist):
A scientist blames the head of a large company for an ecological disaster in South America. But when a volcano begins to show signs of erupting, they must unite to avoid a disaster. Salt and Fire is directed by prominent German filmmaker Werner Herzog, of numerous documentaries of decades as well as feature films including Aguirre the Wrath of God, Nosferatu the Vampyre, Fitzcarraldo, Cobra Verde, Rescue Dawn, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, and Queen of the Desert most recently. The screenplay is also written by Werner Herzog, from a short story by Tom Bissell. Herzog's Salt and Fire first premiered at the Shanghai Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival this fall. The film opens in theaters in some European countries later this year, but no US release date has been set. Stay tuned for news. Anyone curious to see it?
