Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan isn’t playing around this season as he’s hellbent on terrorizing a harmless group of Mexicans desperately seeking better life. Actor Gael Garcia Bernal spearheads the brunt of that chase in Desierto, a film rightfully earned in its place as a festival favorite among critics and moviegoers alike.
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.
Produced by director Jonas Cuarón who wrote the screenplay with Mateo Garcia, the film is slated for an October 14 release following an announcement back in June. A fresh new trailer has now emerged online courtesy of STX Entertainment and you can view it below.
