Gold Red Band Trailer (2016)
Red Band Trailer for Gold.
Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey), an unlucky businessman, teams up with geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) to find gold deep in the uncharted jungles of Indonesia (Borneo).
This film went though several different Directors before settling in on Stephen Gaghan. Paul Haggis was the original Director who ended up passing in favor for other projects. Then Michael Mann was set to Direct and even bought the rights to the script. Bunt Mann dropped out of the director chair when he decided to head up Blackhat instead. And, the final potential Director said to be attached to the film was Spike Lee, but he was eventually replaced by Gaghan.
Gold was originally scheduled to open wide on December 25, 2016, it was pushed back to opening wide on January 27, with the December 25 release staying a limited release in order to qualify for awards. This limited release sort of worked as the film has received a Golden Globe Award nomination for its original song, "Gold" (spoiler alert...it did not win).
Not too much new here to add to the story. We do get to see how the power behind Wall Street comes in a basically pushes out Kenny Wells. Bruce Greenwood character is the main man behind the demise of Kenny and Bruce looks to be a great fit. Plus we get a new scene featuring the hot tub which should make women very happy as we get to see Matthew McConaughey's butt, although a much heavier McConaughey.
I am still on the fence on this film. I think the best thing it has going for itself is that this is based on a true story which gives that extra something that it would not have if it were just a made up Hollywood story. I do not think I will be rushing out to the theaters opening weekend, but I would like to catch it On Demand in my living room.
