Jeffrey Dean Morgan does a "little hunting" in new Desierto trailer
Before Jeffrey Dean Morgan brings his villainous ways back to The Walking Dead next month, he'll be hunting down Gael García Bernal in Jonás Cuarón's DESIERTO. When a group of Mexican migrant workers led by Moises (Gael García Bernal) seek a better life by crossing the U.S. border, they soon encounter Sam (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a ruthless vigilante who intends to use the group as human target practice. A new, albiet shorter, trailer for DESIERTO has been released by STX Entertainment and you can give it a watch below!
The Mexican Academy of Film Arts and Sciences announced several weeks ago that they had submitted DESIERTO as their official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film category in the upcoming 89th Academy Awards.
An official synopsis for DESIERTO:
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.
DESIERTO will hit theaters on October 14th.
