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?
Looks quite fun! I dig Styx.

I read about that scandal just now, all the people involved sound horrible. Bit like the Wolf of Wall Street. Horrible. But somehow entertaining.

I'm going to see this, no doubt. But the trailer made it feel a little cheesy, I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong lol.

This looks really good. Barring horrible reviews I'm in.

"Matthew McConaughey like you've never seen him before: As a balding POS scumbag!" But this looks cool! I'm always up for a "based on a true story" where an underdog makes it to the top just to have it all stripped away. Feel good movie of the year! Merry Christmas everyone!

Easy and fast money. No worse drug in this universe. And that's something that might bring this world down. But McConaughey is doing his usual job here so this is safe for him ...

Looks like the movie to go with Wolf of Wall Street and The Big Short on a movie day.
