“Desperado” actor Antonio Banderas is playing a dirt-covered miner with an undaunted courage in the upcoming film “The 33.”

Based on the true story of 2010 Chilean mine disaster, the film follows the struggles of 33 Chilean miners who trapped inside a copper-gold mine for more than three months.

“You’re my brother; we are going to pull together to out of here.” Banderas playing Mario Sepulveda says in the first teaser, released by Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment on Wednesday. “I believe we’ll make it out of here because I choose to believe it.”

On August 5, the 121-year old San Jose mine suddenly caved in with 33 men working inside. The miners, who were buried 200 stories underground, tried hard to escape through the ventilation shaft but insufficient tools made it impossible for them to get through. 

With only three days of food and water, they were believed to be dead initially but were safely rescued after a successful and remarkably flawless rescue operation.

The 54-year old Antonio Banderas is playing the character of Mario Sepulveda, a miner who recorded daily videos to assure the world that the people inside are alive and fine. The film is directed by Mexican filmmaker Patricia Riggen and also features Rodrigo Santoro, James Brolin, Juliette Binoche and Lou Diamond Philips in the main roles. 

The first official trailer reveals heightened suspense, drama, agony and emotions from both sides, the men trapped in the mine and the people waiting for their loved ones outside. The movie will open in theaters on November 13.
