Stephen Gaghan's latest film, which has a script from Patrick Massett and John Zinman (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider), tells the story of the 1993 Bre-X Corporation mining scandal. The plot follows ambitious prospector Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey) who stumbles upon one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle.
Wells is seemingly made for life, but his haul soon attracts attention, and things spiral into a mess involving Wall Street, the FBI and the Indonesian military.
Names have been changed for this one, but the story still promises to be a ripe one. Gold also features Édgar Ramirez (The Bourne Ultimatum), Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Toby Kebbell (War Horse) and Corey Stoll (Ant-Man). It is out in US cinemas now and will arrive in the UK 3 February.
