Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor star in the Salmon Fishing in the Yemen trailer

The trailer for SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN is a perfect example of how manipulative movie trailers can be. When you sit back and think about it, you realize that the trailer didn’t show us anything that would indicate this is going to be a good film. In fact, some of the dialogue was actually pretty bad. But the trailer was edited together well and the music was timed perfectly and so when you watch it, you walk away feeling excited for the film. So kudos to whoever put this together. The film is about a scientist that’s brought to Yemen to introduce salmon fishing to the region. While there, he meets and falls for one of the Sheik’s beautiful aids.
The film stars Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Kristen Scott Thomas and Amr Waked. Lasse Halstrom is directing the film that hits theaters on March 2nd, 2012.
