Amazon Prime Video has released the first trailer for the upcoming drama/thriller, Thirteen Lives, from director Ron Howard.
The film is based on the events from the 2018 Tham Luang cave rescue.
In June and July 2018, the members of a junior football team were trapped for 18 days in Thailand’s Tham Luang Nang Non cave, after heavy rainfall flooded the cave system and blocked their way out. As the team – who ranged in age from 11-16 years old – and their coach remained trapped for weeks, the situation attracted global interest and an international rescue team was assembled to locate them.
This upcoming film will chronicle the events of the rescue and focus on the efforts of the divers who worked to save the team members.
Colin Farrell and Viggo Mortensen lead the cast. They’ll be starring as Rick Stanton and John Volanthen, the British cave divers who volunteered their expertise to help find the team members. Joel Edgerton and Sahajak ‘Poo’ Boonthanakit also star.
This flick was originally set with MGM, and was set for a release date in November, but now that it’s with Amazon, it’s scheduled to have a limited run in theaters starting on July 29, before a release on Prime Video on August 5.
