STX Entertainment has released a new trailer for their upcoming thriller Desierto, which is set to hit theaters on October 14. From Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón, the acclaimed filmmakers of Gravity, comes a unique, modern vision of terror. Desierto is a visceral, heart-pounding suspense-thriller packed with tension and suspense from start to finish, starring Gael García Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries and Y Tu Mamá También) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen).
What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there's nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer. The new trailer from STX Entertainment offers new footage that shows this could be one of the most intense thrillers arriving this fall.
The supporting cast also includes Diego Cataño, Marco Perez, Oscar Flores, David Lorenzo and Butch McCain. This intense thriller will go up against Warner Bros.' The Accountant, Open Road Films' Max Steel and Universal's stand-up comedy concert film Kevin Hart: What Now when it hits theaters in a few weeks. It remains to be seen how wide a release Desierto will get on October 14.
Jonas Cuaron co-wrote the 2013 blockbuster Gravity with his father Alfonso Cuaron, and he also wrote and directed the companion short film Aningaaq. The filmmaker made his feature directing debut in 2007 with Year of the Nail, and he also directed the documentary short The Shock Doctrine. He is currently attached to direct a new Zorro movie entitled Z, starring Gael Garcia Bernal as the title character.
Gael Garcia Bernal currently stars on the hit Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle, and he will also star in the upcoming indie Neruda, which hits theaters later this year. Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been keeping busy on the small screen, playing the iconic villain Negan in The Walking Dead, which returns with its highly-anticipated Season 7 on Sunday, October 16.
