The Argentine, Che Guevara trailer online

CheGuevara.jpgThe first trailer for Steven Soderbergh's The Argentine has appeared online, and while it's in Spanish, it does look pretty epic and is worth a look just to see, because it may be a long time before we see the final film.

The film was played at the Cannes Film Festival and ran over four hours, so there's no doubt a lot of work to do yet. At the moment all we can do is watch Benecio del Toro as Che.

Oh, here's a thought, someone was good enough to translate the Ninja Assassin behind the scenes footage for us, maybe someone could do the same here?

That's the trailer found through Rope of Silicon, what do you think? Some of those shots look pretty epic, and some of the shots look big, particularly the train derailment. I really need to see more of it first though.

This is actually the first of two Che Guevara films that are planned, The Argentine stars Benicio Del Toro, Franka Potente, and a pretty solid cast behind them, and follows Che in 1956 as he raises an army to remove the regime of the dictator Fulgencio Batista.

The second one is Guerrilla which leaps forward to 1964 and sees him travel to New York to address the United Nations in 1964.

Perhaps what is meant by the four hour screening in Cannes was that both the films were shown back to back rather than The Argentine, the first film, actually being four hours in length. There's certainly a clip from the film of Che addressing the UN.
