Fox Sets Release Dates for Antonio Banderas Pic ‘The 33’ Across Latin America

Anticipation is soaring for “The 33” in Latin America, especially in Chile and Colombia, where the picture was lensed.

Produced by Mike Medavoy’s Phoenix Pictures, the film is helmed by Mexico’s Patricia Riggen and toplined by Antonio Banderas, Gabriel Byrne, Rodrigo Santoro and Juliette Binoche. Fox will roll out the survival drama across Latin America starting Aug. 6 in Chile, after a red-carpet premiere Aug. 2. The premiere is expected to lure a constellation of local talent and officials, the miners as well as the film’s multinational cast and crew. Producers Medavoy, Robert Katz and Edward McGurn are likely to attend the event.

Alcon Entertainment, which snapped up the pic’s distribution rights in North America and most other territories in the world, will release it through Warner Bros. in the U.S. on Nov. 13.

The drama is based on the real events of the 2010 Chilean mining disaster in which 33 miners were trapped underground for months. A multinational effort to rescue the miners gripped a global TV audience for weeks.

Trailer views in Chile alone have numbered 6.6 million, according to 20th Century Fox Chile managing director Hernan Viviano. This is quite a significant tally given Chile’s population of 17 million, he says.

The film debuts Aug. 20 in Colombia, along with the rest of Central America. The rollout continues across the region until Oct. 29 in Brazil.

Pic was the first to tap Colombia’s new incentives for foreign location shoots, which consists of cash rebates of 40% for film services and 20% cash rebates for logistics spend.

While most of the cave interior scenes were shot in Colombia, exterior scenes were filmed outside the actual Copiapo mine that fell in.
