The case of the trapped Thai schoolboys in an underground cave made international headlines and like the trapped Chilean miners (The 33) the rights to make a film of the story were snapped up as we reported HERE. Well now we have a first glimpse of that film with the release of the Thirteen Lives trailer
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.
Ron Howard directs from a screenplay by William Nicholson and is in select UK cinemas on 29 July launching globally on Prime Video on 5th August 2022 in what looks like an uncomfortably claustrophobic watch!
