Russell Crowe's Directorial Debut 'Water Diviner' Gets a US Trailer
After paying in the actor's homeland last winter, Russell Crowe is bringing his directorial debut The Water Diviner to theaters in the United States this spring, and the first trailer for the domestic release has just arrived. Crowe also takes the lead in the period drama as Australian farmer Joshua Connor, who, in 1919, goes in search of his three missing sons, last known to have fought against the Turks in the bloody Battle of Gallipoli. On his journey he encounters many who have come into contact with his sons, played by the likes of Olga Kurylenko and Dylan Georgiades, all who have suffered losses of their own. Watch!
Here's the official US trailer for Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner, originally from Apple:
You can still watch the first Australian trailer for The Water Diviner right here, for more footage.
The Water Diviner is directed by Russell Crowe (star of Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, The Insider), making his directorial debut from a screenplay by Australian television writing duo Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios. The period drama follows an Australian patriarch (Crowe) who journeys to Turkey in order to find his two sons who went missing during the Battle of Gallipoli in 1919. This also stars Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Ryan Corr & Jacqueline McKenzie. It's currently slated for release in Australia on December 26th last year, and Warner Bros. release it in the US on April 24th this spring.

Being a diviner myself, I'm *really* looking forward to this one! The Water Diviner will open up the idea and practice of dowsing and divining to many others.

No way this is going to suck. It'll be mediocre at worst.

I've seen it and I recommend it highly. Russell's made a healing movie about the aftermath of war and it's effects on those left behind. It's a very impressive first movie.
