Watch: Another International Trailer for Annaud's 'Black Gold' Lands
"Sultan considers the exploitation of the Yellow Belt a violation of the treaty. May god protect us all." Another shorter new international trailer has popped up on YouTube (via TMB) for Jean-Jacques Annaud's Arabian oil epic Black Gold, starring a great cast, including Mark Strong as Sultan Amar, seen above. We also featured a fantastic longer trailer for this late last year, and I've been anxiously awaiting it ever since, as it looks spectacular but I don't know when it'll arrive in US theaters. The cast includes Tahar Rahim (of A Prophet), Freida Pinto (of Slumdog Millionaire, Miral) and of course Antonio Banderas. Take a look!
Watch the newest international trailer for Jean-Jacques Annaud's Black Gold, via YouTube:
Black Gold, originally Black Thirst (also Or Noir in French seen above), is directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud (of Quest for Fire, Seven Years in Tibet, Enemy at the Gates, Two Brothers) and shot on-location out in the Sahara. The script was written by Annaud & Menno Meyjes (Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade, The Siege, The Passion Within) adapted from Hans Ruesch's Arab. If you want to see more than the trailer, Playlist has a behind-the-scenes video looking at the scope of the shoot. As far as we know, it doesn't have a US distributor yet, only in France and most of Europe so far. We'll let you know when we have info on a US release, as I still don't think it has a US distributor, but hopefully later this year. I'm very anxious to see this.

Strong hasn't always played villains, check his CV. He's just good. Like you Alex, I'm really looking forward to this. (I hope the Brits go see it in the theaters since I suspect that will have something to do with whether or not we get it in the US.)

Yeah, but it seems Banderas's character is the one who broke the pact. Strong is acting out of honor/seeking justice so he'd be the good guy I'd say
