First Teaser for French Film About the ‘Notre-Dame On Fire’ Incident
“Be sure to use the fastest and surest channel. Your wait will seem long…” Pathe in France has revealed the first teaser trailer for a movie titled, in English, Notre-Dame On Fire – which is indeed a “blockbuster” about the Notre Dame fire in 2019. The French title is, amusingly, just Notre-Dame Brûle and it’s supposed to tell a story “from inside the Notre-Dame de Paris fire of April 2019.” The film retraces how heroic men & women firefighters put their lives on the line to accomplish an awe-inspiring rescue. The movie’s ensemble cast features Samuel Labarthe, Jean-Paul Bordes, Mikael Chirinian, Jérémie Laheurte, Chloé Jouannet, and Pierre Lottin. Don’t dismiss this one too soon! It’s made by the same director as Seven Years in Tibet and Enemy at the Gates, so he certainly knows how to make a good movie. Yeah this looks excruciatingly cheesy, but hey, Hollywood makes disaster films like this all the time so why not. Take a look.
Here’s the first teaser trailer for Jean-Jacques Annaud’s Notre-Dame On Fire, direct from YouTube:
