Antonio Banderas stars in The 33, a movie based on the real-life event which took place in Chile when a gold and copper mine collapsed and trapped 33 miners underground for 69 days. We're getting a first look at the film that boasts a star-studded cast that includes Rodrigo Santoro, Kate del Castillo, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne, Jacob Vargas, Lou Diamond Phillips, James Brolin, Oscar Nuñez ("The Office"), Adriana Barraza and Cote de Pablo ("NCIS").
In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the collapse of a gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked tirelessly in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people they had never even met, waited anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, exploring the private lives and psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of those who refused to give up.
