First Trailer for Stephen Gaghan's 'Gold' with Matthew McConaughey
"For better or worse, the ride had begun. And what a ride…" The Weinstein Company has debuted the first trailer for the film called Gold, the latest from screenwriter Stephen Gaghan, who also directs. Gold stars Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, and Édgar Ramírez as Michael Acosta, two businessmen who team up to search for gold in Indonesia. It's based on the 1993 Bre-X Mineral Corporation mining scandal, and almost feels like a Wolf of Wall Street sequel in a few ways. The cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Joshua Harto, Timothy Simons, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bruce Greenwood, Bill Camp and Rachael Taylor. This looks solid, but there's a wacky side to it I wasn't expecting. It might be fun to watch.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Stephen Gaghan's Gold, originally from Vulture:
Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey), an unlucky man, teams-up with geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) to find gold deep in the uncharted jungles of Indonesia. Based on the 1993 Bre-X Mineral Corp. mining scandal. Gold is directed by American screenwriter Stephen Gaghan, who has made only a few films previously, including Syriana and Abandon. This is the first feature film he's directed in 11 years. The screenplay is written by Stephen Gaghan, Patrick Massett and John Zinman. The film is not scheduled to premiere at any film festivals yet. The Weinstein Company will release Gaghan's Gold in limited theaters starting on December 25th, Christmas Day, this year. Stay tuned for updates. Who's planning to see this?
