The 33 Trailer: The Emotional Story of the Chilean Mining Disaster

31 March 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It wasn't all that long ago -- just back in 2010 -- when the world became enraptured by the plight of 33 Chilean miners who became trapped in a 121-year-old San José copper-gold mine for 69 days. After its conclusion, the story seemed naturally made for film. There were many heroes involved in keeping the miners alive and in the rescue, leading to an almost unbelievably triumphant happy ending to what began as pure horror. The 33, directed by Mexican filmmaker Patricia Riggen (Under the Same Moon) and written by Mikko Alanne (5 Days of War) and Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries), details the events of the mine collapse, the plight and survival of the 33 men who were trapped 2,300 feet underground and 3 miles from the mine's only entrance, and the government's role in stepping in to devise a plan to free them. James Horner also created the sweeping score. From the trailer, the film »

Chilean Mining Disaster Hits the Big Screen in 'The 33' First Trailer

31 March 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been five years since the world was captivated by the ongoing tragedy of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped a half-mile underground after an accident in a mine caused it to collapse. After 69 days, every single one of the trapped miners was rescued for a happy ending. Not long after, a feature film was put into the works, and now the first international trailer for that film has arrived. The 33 is based on that story, and while it takes place in Chile, the entire film is in English (which is annoying). Antonio Banderas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro and Juliette Binoche star in the film, and it looks pretty decent. Here's the first international trailer for Patricia Riggen's The 33 from 20th Century Fox Chile: The 33 is directed by Patricia Riggen (Under the Same Moon) and written by Mikko Alanne and Jose Rivera. The film follows the »

47 (Out of 350) Times People of Colour Contended for Oscars in 10 Years

16 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

And the Oscar nominees are ... the whitest since 1998.

That's the truth as far as the acting categories are concerned. For the first time in 17 years, not a single person of colour stands to win an acting Oscar. [The Atlantic says the last entirely white Oscar nomination list was in 1995. We'll let them duke out which year it is.]

We here at Moviefone Canada looked at Oscar winners and nominees from the past decade to see how they stack up against the upcoming 2015 ceremony. We restricted ourselves to the acting, directing and screenwriting categories.

The definition of "people of colour," of course, varies widely. But when it comes to Oscar nominations, we largely considered people who don't come from an all-white heritage within the last couple of generations.

We plugged the numbers ... and 47 out of 350 nominees in the past 10 years went to people of colour.

That's 13 per cent ... and it's not enough. Especially when U.S. government statistics show that white people (excluding Hispanics or Latinos) make up only 62.6 per cent of the country's population. »
