Thirteen Lives Trailer

"Just a crazy idea…" Amazon has revealed the first official trailer for Thirteen Lives, the Ron Howard fictionalized movie version of the Thailand cave rescue story from 2018. Everyone knows the story! It was headline news for weeks, and they just released an award-winning documentary last year called The Rescue. Howard gives it the Apollo 13 treatment by turning it into a seriously intense feature film. A rescue mission is assembled in Thailand where a group of young boys and their soccer coach are trapped in a system of underground caves that are flooding. A team of world-class divers navigate through miles of dangerous cave networks to discover that finding the boys is only the beginning… The cast features Viggo Mortensen as Richard Stanton, Colin Farrell as John Volanthen, Joel Edgerton as Richard Harris, an anaesthetist, plus a Thai cast featuring Sukollawat Kanarot, Thiraphat Sajakul, Sahajak Boonthanakit, Vithaya Pansringarm, Teeradon Supapunpinyo, & Nophand Boonyai. Yeah this looks as incredible as I was hoping, it's not easy to recreate this and stay true to what really happened. But it seems they've pulled it off.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ron Howard's Thirteen Lives, direct from YouTube:
