Five years ago, 33 Chilean miners spent 69 days 2,300 feet underground after a cave-in. During this time, practically the whole world watched as the government tried to rescue them. This fall, the whole world will get the chance to watch the drama unfold once again on-screen.
There's one extremely amazing thing and there's one outrageously strange aspect to it. I'll start with the (somewhat) negative point first. For a movie that's based in Chile with most if not all of the characters in the movie being Chilean, I don't understand why the studio made a choice to have all the actors speak in accented English. While I was trying my best to enjoy the trailer, I couldn't help but feel distracted by the spoken dialogue in each scene.
The thing that surprised me the most about this trailer though (or as I previously stated, the "amazing thing") is the intensity of Antonio Banderas' acting. I'm not used to seeing him act this way (if there any movie he's in that I should check out, please let me know) and it really helped add to the emotional weight of the narrative. I found myself a teary-eyed at the end of it and I know that I'll probably be a messy, emotional wreck after I watch the full feature.
The 33 comes out on November 13th, 2015
