When on paper the name of the film may not be the most appealing film this side of earth however after its premier screening at Toronto Film Festival it surprised a few and tonight we have the films first trailer. SALMON FISHING IN YEMEN stars Ewan McGregor a fishing expert , Emily Blunt a PR consultant who are thrown together by a Sheik in Yemen who wants to introduce Salmon fishing in his country. This is certainly one of those films that works perfectly with the the old saying don’t judge a book by its cover,yes it maybe about Salmon fishing in the middle east however it is a film which is full of wit and charm as well as a love story between McGregor and Blunt who has a amazing knack of capturing some great chemistry with a her co-stars naturally.Kristin Scott Thomas (who looks to be on a career high in this flick), Amr Wakedand Rachel Stirling also star in the film which is scheduled for release in UK&Ireland 9th March 2012.
Check out the trailer which comes courtesy of Yahoo tells us what you think.
When Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh’s (Amr Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a “good will” story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
