Trailer for SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt

Here is the first trailer for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen directed by Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape). The film stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Amr Waked and Tom Mison. The movie looks as quirky as its title. The story follows Dr. Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist in Great Britain, who is called upon to find a way to introduce salmon into the desert in Yemen.

Here is a description:

A visionary sheik has a big dream -- to bring salmon fishing to the desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative to turn his dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain's leading fisheries expert who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary latches on for its potential as a 'good will' story. Now, 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.

There seems to be a nice blend of interesting characters and great dialogue in this comedy. Check out the trailer below for yourself and share your thoughts:



Salmon Fishing in the Yemen opens in theaters on March 12.
