The further you step into the dark, the harder it is to breathe.
Directed by Ron Howard, the new trailer for Thirteen Lives highlights the terror that exists for those who risk their lives for others. While we often think of the fear experienced by those in danger, the courage to fight their own demons often gets lost on those on the front lines. Debuting in theatres for a limited engagement on July 29th and then moving to Amazon Prime, the film looks to be an intense ride into the depths of the earth and, potentially, the depths of the soul.
Thirteen Lives recounts the incredible true story of the tremendous global effort to rescue a Thai soccer team who become trapped in the Tham Luang cave during an unexpected rainstorm. Faced with insurmountable odds, a team of the world’s most skilled and experienced divers – uniquely able to navigate the maze of flooded, narrow cave tunnels – join with Thai forces and more than 10,000 volunteers to attempt a harrowing rescue of the twelve boys and their coach. With impossibly high stakes and the entire world watching, the group embarks on their most challenging dive yet, showcasing the limitlessness of the human spirit in the process.
