Full US Trailer for Terrorist Attack Film 'Hotel Mumbai' with Dev Patel
"Look, I don't think you understand. There's been an attack and we're not safe." Bleecker Street Media has released the full-length, official US trailer for a true story thriller titled Hotel Mumbai, telling the story of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel terrorist attack in Mumbai in 2008. The film is about the hotel staff who risk their own lives to keep everyone safe, as guests make unthinkable sacrifices to try and save themselves and their families. Dev Patel stars as Arjun, a newly promoted waiter who gets involved in the crossfire trying to rescue guests. The cast also includes Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi, Jason Isaacs, Anupam Kher, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Angus McLaren, Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Rodney Afif, and Sachin Joab. This film first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year to mostly positive reviews. This looks frightening and intense, almost too real and too relevant to everything going on around the world nowadays.
Here's the full-length US trailer (+ new poster) for Anthony Maras' Hotel Mumbai, direct from YouTube:
Hotel Mumbai is based on the true story of the devastating terrorist attack on the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in 2008. The terrifying assault brings together the guests and the staff of the luxurious hotel including wealthy new parents David and Zahra (Armie Hammer and Nazanin Boniadi), Russian businessman Vasili (Jason Issacs) and newly promoted waiter Arjun (Dev Patel) in a desperate fight for survival. This story celebrates humanity, compassion, courage, resilience and the unwavering desire to survive. Hotel Mumbai is directed by Australian filmmaker Anthony Maras, making his feature directorial debut after a few short films previously. The screenplay is written by John Collee and Anthony Maras. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and Adelaide Film Festival last year. Bleecker Street Media + Shivhans Pictures will release Maras' Hotel Mumbai in select US theaters starting March 22nd in the spring. Your thoughts?

Not as great as the earlier trailers.

I mean, it's probably done well, but still, it can only serve as something from tv program. There seems to be nothing special about it ...

Doesn't look very good.

Dev is the SHIT. Needs to be in more non-stereotypical roles. Loved him in The Newsroom, and that other tiny film he did ... um...

Seems an overly long trailer (didn't watch it all) but the subject seems very interesting. They really need to do an 18 rated film like this where they show the truly horrifying nature of these kind of acts. What a bomb does to human bodies, what bullets actually do when they rip through people. When it isn't being sanitised, you can see how incredibly brave people actually were being when they are in the thick of such terror and maybe it will make people realise that supporting the need to crush these acts (from all sides of the political and religious spectrum) requires a little more support than a throwaway Facebook message.

I honestly thought it was a very gripping trailer, and for one look forward to the movie, oftentimes we in the West underestimate Bollywood's quality. Indian culture is featured so little in our pop culture after all.

Looks like it's worth a watch, but hopefully it's not too overly dramatic and sticks to the facts.
