See Matthew McConaughey in GOLD’s new trailer
The on-camera ways of Matthew McConaughey (The Sea of Trees,The Dark Tower) still impress us. Check out the new trailer for Gold, his latest acting project and Stephen Gaghan‘s second directorial effort afterSyriana, which might sell the movie right off the bat.
Based on a true story and set in the early ’90s, the movie stars McConaughey as a down on his luck business person with a dream, and a bald-spot. Kenny Wells (McConaughey) goes hunting for gold in the Indonesian jungle. At his side is Michael Acosta (Ramirez), a geologist who discovers with Wells one massive goldmine.Gold co-stars Corey Stoll, Bruce Greenwood, and Toby Kebbell. The film looks far flashier than Syriana, but considering the time period and the story, that makes sense. (via Slashfilm)
“The gold is mine,” Kenny Wells declares in the trailer. “I found it.”
The official synopsis reads:
GOLD is the epic tale of one man’s pursuit of the American dream, to discover gold. Starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a prospector desperate for a lucky break, he teams up with a similarly eager geologist and sets off on an amazing journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street. The film is inspired by a true story.
Directed by Oscar winner Stephen Gaghan (TRAFFIC, SYRIANA), the film stars Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey (INTERSTELLAR, DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET) and Golden Globe nominees Edgar Ramirez (HANDS OF STONE, THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN) and Bryce Dallas Howard (JURASSIC WORLD, PETE’S DRAGON). The film is written by Patrick Massett & John Zinman and financed by Black Bear Pictures. Black Bear’s Teddy Schwarzman and HWY 61’s Michael Nozik served as producers alongside Massett, Zinman, and McConaughey. HWY 61 partner Paul Haggis, Richard Middleton and Black Bear’s Ben Stillman are executive producers.
