Here are six new stills from the upcoming movie ‘The 33,’ based on the story of the 33 Chilean miners. New trailer arrives on Wednesday.

“We all know the beginning and we know the end of this story,” Antonio Banderas told USA Today. “What I discovered was another story, one not told. It’s the story we tried to do here. We tried to put a magnifying glass on human behavior that comes out in situations like this, when death is right in front of you.”

Antonio Banderas dropped weight during filming to mirror Sepúlveda’s weight loss during the 17 days trapped in the mines. “When I saw in the mirror that my tummy was very reduced and the bags really growing under my eyes, I thought that I could pull this off,” says Banderas.

The story of the 33 miners was condensed in the movie into 10 major characters onscreen.

“We had to compress all that happened to them in an hour and a half,” director Patricia Riggen told USA Today. “They think it was very fair to what they lived.”

“This movie is about that humanity,” says Riggen. “It shows what human beings can accomplish when we all work together. That’s always very attractive to me as a filmmaker and that’s why this touched everyone. This is an example to the world of how people should react in these circumstances.”

Based on the story of the 33 Chilean miners, whose remarkable rescue from the San Jose Mine captivated the world’s attention. The film will recount the events surrounding the mine’s collapse and the subsequent rescue efforts, both from the miners’ perspective and those of the families and rescuers above, culminating in the emotional retrieval of all 33 miners. The script, which was written in collaboration with the miners themselves, also details the never-before told story of their first 17 days underground, before contact was made, details of which the miners have kept confidential until this time as part of their ‘pact of silence.’

Directed by Patricia Riggen. Starring: Antonio Banderas, Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne, Juan Pablo Raba, Kate del Castillo, and James Brolin.

‘The 33′ opens in U.S. theaters on November 13, 2015.
