The mining drama "Gold" is inspired by the true story about the 1993 Bre-X Mineral Corporation mining scandal where large amounts of gold were reportedly discovered in the Indonesian jungle. Directed by Stephen Gaghan ("Traffic," "Syriana"), "Gold" stars Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey ("Interstellar," "Dallas Buyers Club") as a failing businessman and prospector that teams up with a luckless geologist/explorer played by Edgar Ramirez ("Zero Dark Thirty"). The duo heads into the Indonesian jungle on the trail of undiscovered gold.
