Hotel Mumbai Trailer Release

“Hotel Mumbai” Offers Up Intense New Trailer

Rarely in this industry am I ever surprised.  A good film is a good film, and most that aren’t you can see the writing on the way a few months out.

But every now and then you get a Hotel Mumbai.

The film, which chronicles the chaotic and terrorizing attacks on the famed Taj Hotel in Mumbai, India in 2008, is a genuinely remarkable achievement as it focuses in on the true story of humanity and heroism that exists when survival is on the line.  And though many will write it off as a typical action film detailing a conflict overseas, Hotel Mumbai proves to be so much more.

I had the privilege of attending the world premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, walking away both impressed and affected - a rarity these days.  Starring Dev Patel, Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi, Tilda Cobham-Hervey, and Jason Isaacs, the film is moving and emotionally charged as you search for a breath during the gunfire and room-by-room search that ensues.

The film’s first trailer wholly encompasses these traits, giving you merely a tease of the experience that awaits you inside the movie theater.

Bleeker Street is the studio fortunate enough to release this mesmerizing film, setting a March 22 release date.  Run, don’t walk - this film is worthy of any and all hype.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
