A second teaser trailer has been released for “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” “The Impossible” and “The Orphanage” director J. A. Bayona’s new Netflix true story disaster feature “Society of the Snow”.
The Spanish-language film deals with Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 which was chartered to fly a rugby team to Chile in 1972 and catastrophically crashed on a glacier in the heart of the Andes.
Only 29 of the 45 passengers survived the crash and were forced to resort to extreme measures – including cannibalism – to stay alive. The story was previously adapted to the big screen back in Frank Marshall’s 1993 film “Alive”.
The ensemble cast includes genuine Uruguayan and Argentine actors with Enzo Vogrincic Roldan, Matias Recalt, Agustin Pardella, Tomas Wolf, Diego Ariel Vegezzi, Esteban Kukuriczka, Francisco Romero, Rafael Federman, Felipe González Otaño, Agustin Della Corte, Valentino Alonso, Simón Hempe, Fernando Contigiani Garcia, Benjamin Segura and Jeronimo Bosia.
Bayona, Bernat Vilaplana, Jaime Marques and Nicolas Casariego have written the film based on the novel by Pablo Vierci. It was shot in the Sierra Nevada (Andalucia, Spain), in Montevideo (Uruguay) and in various locations in the Andes (Chile, Argentina), including where the actual events took place in El Valle de las Lagrimas.
The film launched at this year’s Venice Film Festival to great reviews with a 92% (7.8/10) on Rotten Tomatoes thus far. It will launch in select theaters this December followed by its streaming release on January 4th.
