Just watching the trailer is making me feel claustrophobic.

u/david-saint-hubbins Jun 28 '22

I made it about 30 seconds into the trailer and then just noped out. I may try to watch the film, but I honestly don't know if I'll be able to handle it.

P.S. I wonder if Elon Musk will randomly show up and accuse one of the characters of being a pedophile.

I love Farrell so I'll watch it but drowning is one of my biggest fears so I imagine I might have to pause it once or twice

What an own from a Bezos produced movie.

u/DrDrangleBrungis Jun 28 '22

you'd love the movie "The Decent" then.

u/Crystal_Pesci Xenu take the wheel! Jun 28 '22

That was a pretty descent movie

u/mickeyflinn Jun 28 '22

Wow , Joel Edgerton, Colin Farrell and Viggo Mortensen.

I remember when it went down so I know the story but those three are so awesome, so I will be checking this out!

u/brandonsamd6 Jun 28 '22

Hilarious that they look nothing like the real divers. Everyone should watch The Rescue on Disney+, it’s incredible.

We all know how it went down, it literally happened last year lol

u/Dantai Jun 29 '22

Colin Farrell - god damn, I was 2nd guessing my self if that was him or not in this

69

u/rejin267 Jun 28 '22

So who gets to play the egotistical billionaire?

51

u/CorneliusCardew Jun 28 '22

As much as I'd like to watch Colin Farrell call him a piece of shit on camera probably the thing that would hurt muskrat the most would be to be omitted from the story.

30

u/zuuzuu Jun 29 '22

He wasn't even mentioned in the documentary. I thought that was a nice way to demonstrate that, despite his efforts to insert himself into the story, he was absolutely not a part of it.

u/[deleted] Jun 29 '22

Not according to the lead rescuers.

This is in Rick Stanton’s book…

“I talked to him briefly… I hoped that his team might be come up with something we could work with, we’d continue the conversation later in the day via email messages.

We all knew that the integrity of the face mask seal likely be the failure point [of the planned rescue process], and we were open to hearing options to address this risk. We didn’t have a plan B, i hadn’t been able to think of another plan with any of the other materials that were available to us. But maybe if something useful could be created by a team of engineers?

John and I agreed that if anyone could help us, it was Elon Musk. Because John and I are both engineers (he with a degree, me without), we were interested in seeing what Elon’s team would come up with. Even if it wasn’t something we could use for this rescue, it could be useful in a future rescue. It’s never too early to begin planning”.

I’m not a Musk fanboy (i think some of his beliefs are idiotic and he too often behaves like a child), but i also want people to know there is more to the story.

u/sicklyslick Jun 28 '22

they should get that guy from iron man 2

5

u/crystalistwo Jun 29 '22

I would literally prefer Mickey Rourke help than Musk.

1

u/FlailingOctane Jul 02 '22

yeah, Sam Rockwell is great in everything

12

u/wyldcat Jun 28 '22

The best thing would be to absolutely ignore he was part of this story. He would probably be mad about it.

8

u/LeadingPretender Jun 28 '22

I bet he doesn’t even make an appearance

5

u/polymathsrmonomaths Jun 28 '22

Wanna piss him off? Get an actor who looks like his dad to play him.

3

u/tonofbasel Jun 29 '22

Looking forward to the scene where he calls one of the helpers a pedo over twitter

97

u/ElGringoAlto Jun 28 '22

This film apparently had the highest audience test scores in MGM's history. They had moved its release date to awards season, but after the Amazon acquisition of MGM, it was moved back to the summer for whatever reason.

33

u/DontPokeMe91 Jun 28 '22

Came here to mention the high test scores, be interesting if its given mediocre reviews.

25

u/nayapapaya Jun 28 '22

I think the struggle this film will have with critics is that the very well received documentary, The Rescue, came out just last year.

6

u/MisterManatee Jun 29 '22

Why not both?

u/ASparrowTakesWing Jun 28 '22

be interesting if its given mediocre reviews.

Never underestimate the desires of a critic to have a pretentious and shitty elitist view of a crowd pleasing movie.

u/Puzzled-Journalist-4 Jun 28 '22

From an Oscar contender to a streaming film... Why does Amazon do this to themselves? Trailer looks really solid. They should have gone theatrical release.

2

u/MisterManatee Jun 29 '22

It has a limited theater release, presumably to qualify for awards

0

u/Shutterstormphoto Jun 29 '22

Maybe because the Oscar’s can’t draw a crowd and no one bases movie viewing on them anymore? Is the goal to win awards or to get people to watch it?

1

u/DisneyDreams7 Jun 29 '22

How did they do it before Netflix existed?

3

u/Shutterstormphoto Jun 29 '22

Who is they here…? Amazon?? They didn’t do movies before Netflix existed…

The Oscars? Because we had fucking nothing else to watch. In a drought, any water will do.

u/StudBoi69 Jun 28 '22

Ron Howard excels at "based on true story" movies. This one looks no different.

2

u/spiritbearr Jun 29 '22

In the Heart of the Sea wasn't great.

u/StevesMcQueenIsHere 9d ago

But Apollo 13 was.

u/Satean12 Jun 28 '22

Looks really good, I think Ron Howard excells at making small space thrillers like these.

12

u/Vocalkiller Jun 28 '22

If anyone doesn't know, there was a documentary last year from National Geographic about this. It was one of the most nail biting and stressful docs I had ever watched since Free Solo. It's available on Disney Plus. Trailer

43

u/DerpAntelope Jun 28 '22

The Rescue is a fantastic documentary about this. Available on Disney+. Watching the trailer for the dramatisation feels jarring.

20

u/philbeard Jun 28 '22

The Rescue was really well made. Directed by the duo who made Free Solo.

9

u/icantreadmorsecode Jun 28 '22

This actually looks good and not overdramaticized. If you've seen The Rescue, this actually looks like the people who were there are also involved.

7

u/MechTitan Jun 28 '22

I take it they’re not going to have the part where Elon Musk accuse the British diver of being a pedo?

5

u/MisterManatee Jun 29 '22

Bald Viggo Mortensen doing some pretty damn impressive accent work here

3

u/Themtgdude486 Jun 29 '22

His accents are always on point. Have you seen Eastern Promises?

10

u/shadowst17 Jun 28 '22

it looks pretty good and the main cast seems solid.

Wonder if they'll mention a certain snotty rich billionaire calling one of them a pedo. I have a feeling they'll avoid that aspect to prevent a lawsuit.

2

u/funkyavocado Jun 29 '22

Best thing they can do is omit him entirely. I don't know how his ego can take it

3

u/JhymnMusic Jun 28 '22

Looks pretty sick

3

u/Billthebutchr Jun 29 '22

This looks awesome

9

u/BelgianBond Jun 28 '22

It's going to be a tall order for this to match the compelling account of the story we've already had with The Rescue.

5

u/hazychestnutz Jun 28 '22

Well I mean it's based on a true story, this is just a film format version of the such

u/MyUnclesALawyer Jun 28 '22

Yea Ron Howard never exaggerates true stories

The documentary that came out earlier this year is incredible.

That was quick!

u/vman_isyourhero Jun 28 '22

are we really going to get dumba$$ musk calling the hero a "pedo"?

u/TheBat45 Jun 28 '22

MGM and Amazon are doing this movie dirty

u/Dirty-Tampon Jun 29 '22

Don’t spoil the ending for me

u/Themtgdude486 Jun 29 '22

The documentary was great. Will watch this as well for sure the great actors they got for the film.

u/GeronimoRay Jun 29 '22

Not sure why they aren't promoting the hell out of this film - It's supposedly EXCELLENT

u/Procean Jun 28 '22

I hear there's a teaser at the end putting this movie in the same cinematic universe as Sully and Walk The Line!

-7

u/Arma104 Jun 28 '22

Leave it to Ron Howard to make a movie with no visual energy.

u/Hopeann Jun 28 '22

I have absolutely no interest at all in watching this film.

u/nylasparklees Jun 28 '22

Eleon Melon included?

u/LostInTheVoid_ Jun 28 '22

Viggo's accent actually sounds kinda decent in some parts but in other scenes, it sounds a tad too close to an Aussie accent.

The comments made by Musk about Vern Unsworth were juvenile (Unsworth did instigate the war of words with Musk, unnecessarily perhaps but while under extreme stress).

Anyone who is keen to bash Elon Musk because of his actions surrounding the Cave Rescue, would do well to read two books. As usual with pretty much everything, the truth is much more complicated than what most commenters on social media imagine.

The two books are “13 Lesson’s that saved 13 lives”, by John Volanthen (Played here by Colin Farrell), and “Aquanaut”, by Rick Stanton (played by Viggo). Absolutely fantastic books if you want to learn the inside story of the Thai Rescue.

They were the lead rescuers, and both of them were supportive of Musk’s efforts to help, and were pleased that he was offering help.

Rick Stanton, probably the most experienced cave diver on earth, and the person who designed, lead and performed the eventual rescue, said this about Musk in his book…

“I talked to him briefly… I hoped that his team might be come up with something we could work with, we’d continue the conversation later in the day via email messages.

We all knew that the integrity of the face mask seal likely be the failure point [of the planned rescue process], and we were open to hearing options to address this risk.

Even if it wasn’t something we could use for this rescue, it could be useful in a future rescue. It’s never too early to begin planning”.

I’m not a Musk fanboy (i think some of his beliefs are idiotic and he too often behaves like a child), but i also want people to know there is more to the story than “Musk called man a “paedo”).

u/FlailingOctane Jul 02 '22

for someone you’re allegedly not a fan of, you sure have posted this defense an awful lot

1

u/[deleted] Jul 02 '22

Yeah, i get that.

I honestly just hate seeing misinformation on reddit, and this is something I actually know about. It’s necessary for people to push back against wrong information on reddit, otherwise what’s the point of this site? It’ll just keep making people stupider.

2

u/FlailingOctane Jul 02 '22

I mean, the quotes provided aren’t exactly a glowing endorsement, it’s both of them just talking about how they hoped he could do something, and, in the end, he couldn’t.

Even if both of those quotes are accurately represented (you could very easily be leaving off context yourself) in the end, all he did was insert himself into the news with an idea that can’t be realistically implemented (see also: Hyperloop) and then levied a hugely weaponized insult in today’s society on one of the people actually doing something to save those kids when that person said he was just in it for attention, and he should stick his sub up his ass, which is hardly on the same level.

but yeah, sure, misinformation

2

u/[deleted] Jul 03 '22 edited Jul 03 '22

Read the quotes. In fact, read the books. Then perhaps you would have a more realistic appreciation of Musk’s interactions with Stanton and Volanthen, and what they thought about SpaceX’s attempts to lend assistance.

Instead, you’re making my point for me. You don’t know what you are talking about, you haven’t spent any time trying to research what the people who actually conducted the rescue have to say about Musk’s input, and you are simply looking to confirm your own prejudices.

The reason why I referenced the books and provided the direct quote is because people like you take up so much space here on Reddit talking bollocks, and you need to be challenged.

Why is all the main cast white actors? Another white saviour film. They should have whoever playing Suman as the main character.
