Miss Bala Trailer

I'm certain most haven't heard of this film, but now is the time to get introduced. Fox International has unveiled the full official trailer for Gerardo Naranjo's Miss Bala, an incredible Mexican thriller starring Stephanie Sigman as a young beauty queen wannabe who gets caught up in the world of organized crime. I likened this to City of God in my early Cannes review, but it's one of my favorite films of that fest and definitely creeps up to the levels of City of God. It's one of those riveting films that starts, get intense quick, and doesn't let up the entire time. I highly recommend this, make it your mission to see this film in theaters!

Watch the first official international trailer for Gerardo Naranjo's Miss Bala, via YouTube:

The story of a beautiful young woman named Laura Guerrero (played by Stephanie Sigman) clinging on to her dream to become a beauty contest queen in an impoverished Mexico dominated by organized crime.

Miss Bala is both written and directed by up-and-coming Mexican filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo, of a few other films previously, including Drama/Mex, I'm Going to Explode and Revolución. The screenplay was written by Naranjo and Mauricio Katz. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where it received quite a bit of praise and acclaim. As far as we know, 20th Century Fox is distributing even in the US, but we don't have any actual info on the US release yet, so stay tuned for updates. Interested in catching this?

No they didn't. Saint Savior is thrilled with the trailer, she said so on Twitter. Get a grip.
