Zac Efron & Anthony Hayes in New US Trailer for Gritty Thriller 'Gold'
"Out here, things start to get real strange…" Screen Media Films has revealed the official US trailer for the film Gold, which is arriving in theaeters in the US starting this March. When two drifters traveling through the desert stumble across the biggest gold nugget ever found, the dream of immense wealth and greed takes hold. They hatch a plan to protect and excavate their bounty with one man leaving to secure the necessary equipment. The other remains and must endure harsh desert elements, ravenous wild dogs, and mysterious intruders, whilst battling the sinking suspicion that he has been abandoned to his own fate. Zac Efron co-stars with Anthony Hayes, who also directs the film. Not to be confused with the other Gold film starring McConaughey. We featured the first trailer a few months ago. This still reminds me of David Michôd's film The Rover with its gritty post-apocalyptic style. Who wants to bet it's not actually gold they found? Maybe.
Here's the official US trailer (+ new poster) for Anthony Hayes' Gold, direct from YouTube:
When two drifters traveling across a deserted wasteland stumble across the biggest gold nugget ever found, the dream of immense wealth and greed takes hold. The discovery soon becomes problematic when they realize a large part of the nugget is buried underground. They hatch a plan to protect and excavate the gold, with one man leaving to secure the necessary equipment. The other remains and must endure the harsh desert elements while battling suspicion he has been abandoned to his own fate. Two-way radios keep them in contact, and with hours and eventually days of dead airtime in between each communication the stranded man begins to run out of supplies. Water is scarce, food even more so. His plans to protect the gold are interrupted by two strangers who may change the course of the men's plans. Gold is directed by Australian actor / director Anthony Hayes, making his feature directorial debut after a few short films previously. The screenplay is written by Anthony Hayes and Polly Smyth. This already opened in Australia in January. Screen Media will debut Gold in select US theaters exclusively starting on March 11th, 2022.
