Day of the Falcon (2011) Movie Poster

Oh, oil. What can’t you do? Like make our cars go, start wars, and turn people filthy rich for doing absolutely nothing to have earned it? Turns out, there’s not a whole lot oil can’t do, which probably explains why people are willing to kill to possess it. Two of those people (and their kids) are at the center of director Jean-Jacques Annaud’s “Day of the Falcon”, originally released under the title “Black Gold” for, well, you know why.

The epic film is now heading to VOD this Friday courtesy of Image Entertainment. Check out the latest trailer and a batch of images from the flick below.

After years of bloody conflict, the leaders of two rival kingdoms reluctantly agree to end the fighting. But when oil is discovered between their territories, the war is re-ignited. Now it is up to their children – young lovers who have married in hopes of bringing the families together – to find a way to end the violence and bring peace to the land.

Starring Antonio Banderas, Mark Strong, Freida Pinto and Tahar Rahim, “Day of the Falcon” (originally “Black Gold”) comes courtesy of director Jean-Jacques Annaud (“Enemy at the Gates”).

Hitting VOD everywhere this February 1st, 2013.
