Museo — U.S. Trailer


added: Tue, Aug 28th '18

Golden Globe-winning Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle, Coco) plays one of two college school drop-outs who commit Mexico's greatest museum heist in the new U.S. trailer for the 1980s-era true-crime flick "Museo."

Also, starring Mexican actor Leonardo Ortizgris as Bernal's unlikely partner-in-crime, the offbeat thriller is inspired by the real life 1985 caper, in which two amateur robbers pulled off the biggest heist in Mexico's history, stealing approximately 140 priceless artifacts from Mexico's National Anthropology Museum on Christmas Eve.

Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Screenplay at this year's Berlin International Film Festival, "Museo" is just the second feature from acclaimed Mexican filmmaker Alonso Ruizpalacios, who previously made the award-winning black-and-white coming-of-age film "Gueros."

Co-starring Alfredo Castro, Simon Russell Beale, Ilse Salas, and Leticia Bredice, "Museo" (which means "Museum" in English) will be released in the U.S. next month, opening first in New York on September 14th and in Los Angeles on Sept. 21st with other cities to follow.

The film tells the circumstances surrounding the theft of several pre-Hispanic artifacts from the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City in 1985, and the surprise of the authorities when they discovered that the authors of such a feat had been two marginal young people from the suburbs, Carlos. Perches and Ramon Sardina (Garcia Bernal and Leonardo Ortizgris), instead of the professional art thieves to whom the subtraction of objects was attributed
