Despite having a late December bow in Australia, Russell Crowe’s directorial fiction debut won’t arrive stateside until next spring, therefore missing this year’s awards race completely. But that doesn’t mean the buzz can’t start early. A couple of months ago saw our first look at Crowe’s “The Water Diviner,” and now two new clips from the film have hit the internet.
Set in 1919, Crowe’s film centers on an Australian man who travels to Turkey to search for his missing sons, one of whom was reported missing in action. The two clips run a total of roughly two-minutes-and-a-half and feature Crowe as the worried patriarch, a mustached Jai Courtney, and a wicked dust storm.
“The Water Diviner” hits Australian and New Zealand cinemas on December 26th, with releases scheduled for April 3rd in the U.K. and April 24th in the U.S. Watch the two clips below. Do you like what you see? Let us know in the comments section.
