ON

If you thought Russell Crowe had mastered water in Noah, think again. The star plays a father on an epic quest to find his missing sons in the first official trailer for his directorial debut The Water Diviner. Check it out along with the poster below!

Set in 1919 after the Battle of Gallipoli–a futile attempt by the allies to take a prominent Ottoman peninsula during World War I–The Water Diviner follows an Australian farmer named Connor (Russell Crowe) who travels to Turkey determined to bring back the bodies of his sons after they are presumably killed in battle, only to find out their might be more hope for them than he thought.

Directed by and starring Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator, Noah), the film also features Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney and Jacqueline McKenzie, and will bow in Australia on December 26. The Weinstein Company acquired The Water Diviner at the Cannes Film Festival in May, though no US release date is set.
