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.

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 »
