Release Date: November 13, 2015
Thoughts: Like many, I watched the developing story of the Chilean miners during the course of the 69 days they were trapped underground. A remarkable story of survival, its drama in real life tale seemed like a perfect TV movie of the week fodder. Instead, it’s been given the big screen treatment and The 33 looks to be an impressive account of the ordeal as seen through the eyes of the men trapped and their families awaiting their return. It’s also probably the only time I’ll be able to report that Oscar winning actress Juliette Binoche (Godzilla) took over a role that Jennifer Lopez (What To Expect When You’re Expecting) signed up for.
