Jonás Cuarón’s Thriller

STX Entertainment has today released the first trailer for Jonás Cuarón’s immigrant thriller Desierto, starring Gael García Bernal, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Alondra Hidalgo.

Hit the jump to check out a grimy, desert-set thriller Desierto, the winner of the Special Presentations FIPRESCI Prize at TIFF – space looks a little less terrifying, now:

From Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón, the acclaimed filmmakers of Gravity, comes a unique, modern vision of terror. Desierto is a visceral, heart-pounding suspense-thriller packed with tension and suspense from start to finish, starring Gael García Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries and Y Tu Mamá También) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen). What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there’s nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer.
