Antonio Banderas’ Chilean Miner Thriller ‘The 33’ Gets Fall Release Date

Antonio Banderas' Chilean Miner Thriller 'The 33' Gets Fall Release Date

Alcon Entertainment has inked a November 13, 2015 release date for “The 33” via Warner Bros., per the companies’ longterm motion picture agreement.

Oscar-nominated producer Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan”), who brought the project to Alcon, worked closely with families and rescuers to tell this 2010 story of 33 miners who were trapped half a mile underground for 69 days after the collapse of a 121-year-old copper-gold mine. Starring Antonio Banderas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro and Juliette Binoche as one of the entombed miner’s sisters, the film is entirely in English, with Chilean accents, which should secure its international appeal (while annoying others).

Shot in working mines in Colombia and Chile, the film marks Patricia Riggen’s feature film followup to 2007’s “Under the Same Moon.” “The 33” is written by Mikko Alanne, Craig Borten (“Dallas Buyers Club”) and Michael Thomas from José Rivera’s screen story, and has already opened in Chile via 20th Century Fox Chile. Medavoy produced the film with Robert Katz (“Crash,” “Seabiscuit”) and Edward McGurn.

Film is not yet released in Chile but all of Chile and Latin America waits with anticipation of this being released. Also the movie was shot in the Atacama desert in Chile right near the actual mines and the Camp Hope and the shots inside the mine underground were shot in real mines in Colombia.
