Watch: Russell Crowe’s WWI-Set Directorial Debut ‘The Water Diviner’ Gets First Trailer

Watch: Russell Crowe's 'The Water Diviner' Trailer

Russell Crowe finally takes a directorial stab at the wartime period piece with "The Water Diviner," set after the Battle of Gallipoli, an Allied assault on Turkish forces that resulted in hundreds of thousands of casualties during World War I. Crowe plays a father who lost his sons in the battle and now must find them.

The Aussie epic also stars Olga Kurylenko, who dazzled last year in Malick’s befuddling "To the Wonder," and rising heartthrob Jai Courtney of "Divergent." "The Water Diviner" hits Australian theaters on December 26 — so when will we see this film in the US? No word yet.
