Viggo Mortensen leads a heartbreaking rescue operation in the “Thirteen Lives” trailer


Viggo Mortensen plays a stellar cast in the trailer for “Thirteen Lives.” Directed by Ron Howard, “Thirteen Lives” tells an incredible true story, to which the director has a penchant, having shot “Apollo 13”, “Cinderella Man” and “Rush”. The script was written by William Nicholson, whose work also includes writing 2012’s Gladiator and Les Miserables. “Thirteen Lives” also features a fantastic cast, in which Mortensen plays alongside Joel Edgerton, Colin Farrell, Tom Bateman and Paul Gleeson.

The trailer for the movie “Thirteen Lives”, published on YouTube by Prime Video, sets the stakes: a young football team from Thailand heads to the cave to explore it and have fun. Unfortunately, torrential rains quickly cause flooding, resulting in the team and their coach being trapped inside the cave. Due to the fact that there are few options left, and the water level is rising, cave divers are called to help in the rescue. However, as soon as the divers find the stranded team, they are faced with a completely new problem: how do they throw frightened children back through narrow caves?
