Salmon Fishing In The Yemen Gets New Trailer

Going back all the way to Once Around, Lasse Hallström has been, for many, a hit or miss director. What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, The Cider House Rules and Chocolat have entered a special realm for a lot of people, but The Shipping News, The Hoax, and Dear John are perhaps in other categories.

Hitting theaters on March 9th, Hallström is now teamed up with Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. From the popular novel, and adapted for the screen by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours), the film seems to have a lot of ticks in the pro column before we even need to see anything.

The new trailer gives us even more to sink our teeth into though, as McGregor and Blunt look to deliver the kind of quirk they’ve become known for. Check it out, and mark your calendars.

     

From the director of Chocolat and the Oscar-winning® screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire comes the inspirational comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. When Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh’s (Amr Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a “good will” story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
