Check out the first official trailer of Salt and Fire, the upcoming eco-thriller movie directed by Werner Herzog based on a short story by Tom Bissell and starring Michael Shannon, Gael Garcia Bernal, Veronica Ferres, and Werner Herzog:
“The United Nations has sent a scientific delegation, led by researchers Laura (Veronica Ferres) and Fabio (Gael García Bernal), to investigate rare South American geological formations. But as soon as they land, the crew is kidnapped by minions of rogue businessman Matt Riley (Michael Shannon), who has his own agenda when it comes to environmental protection. Deep inside his compound, Laura becomes separated from her fellow explorers and drawn deeper into Riley’s world, but try as she might, she can’t predict his final plan.”
The trailer may look enticing, and the cast can boast Michael Shannon and Gael Garcia Bernal, but early reviews of the film aren’t that flattering… So don’t get your hopes up too high for this one.
The film still has to get an official U.S. release date, but it will hit German theaters on November 17, 2016.
