The new trailer for the upcoming flick “Hotel Mumbai” has been released, starring Armie Hammer and Dev Patel.
The movie, which premiered at TIFF 2018, tells the true tale of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, which saw at least 174 people die and more held hostage at The Mahal Palace Hotel in India.
The official synopsis reads, “‘Hotel Mumbai’ vividly recounts the 2008 siege of the famed Taj Hotel by a group of terrorists in Mumbai, India.”
“Among the dedicated hotel staff is the renowned chef Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) and a waiter (Patel) who choose to risk their lives to protect their guests.”
“As the world watches on, a desperate couple (Hammer and Nazanin Boniadi) is forced to make unthinkable sacrifices to protect their newborn child.”
The film, which is set to hit theatres in March, is said to be similar to the 2009 documentary “Surviving Mumbai”.
