First Trailer: “Queen of the Desert”

The first trailer has been released for Werner Herzog’s long awaited “Queen of the Desert,” the biopic of legendary historian, writer, archaeologist, administrator, spy and adventurer Gertrude Bell who was a key figure in the establishment of several Middle East dynasties and even nation states in the early 20th century.

Nicole Kidman takes on the role here, joined by Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence and the likes of Damian Lewis and James Franco in a film which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival to mixed response. A limited release is currently targeting a late September U.S. bow.
