Colonia Trailer: Emma Watson Tries to Save Her Man During the Chilean Coup

Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl star in Colonia, an upcoming thriller set during the Chilean military coup in 1973.

The film tells of Lena (Watson) and Daniel (Brühl), a young couple who find themselves tangled up in Chile’s ’73 coup, which leads to Daniel’s abduction by General Pinochet’s secret police. Lena’s search for her other half leads her to a sealed off area named Colonia Dignidad, a cult run by the malicious Paul Schäfer (Michael Nyqvist).

Based on true events, Colonia looks to be telling quite the fascinating story set around a truly troubling period in Chile’s history. The trailer itself doesn’t give away too much, which we’re very grateful for, and instead offers a series of intriguing snippets that hint at a tense and dark thriller.

A strong cast and an interesting story; we’re in.

Colonia will be released in Germany on January 21, 2016. Other release dates to be announced soon.
