Matthew McConaughey has certainly come a long way from being the king of awful rom-coms. Indeed, he hasn’t made one for years. Next up he’s got Gold, which was originally being lined up as an awards contender, but following middling reviews it doesn’t look like it’s going to be winning much.
While it got a small Oscar-qualifying release in the US at Christmas, it won’t reach most cinemas over there until the end of the month, while it’ll arrive in the UK on February 3rd.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘GOLD is the epic tale of one man’s pursuit of the American dream, to discover gold. Starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a prospector desperate for a lucky break, he teams up with a similarly eager geologist and sets off on an amazing journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street. The film is inspired by a true story.’
