Salmon Fishing in the Yemen - New Trailer and Stills

The upcoming comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, starring Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas, from director Lasse Hallstrom has a new trailer for you all to check out. The unlikely story of a Sheikh who wants to introduce fly-fishing to the desert, and the fisheries expert that is brought in to help, looks very funny judging from this trailer. You can make up your own minds though.

Written by Simon Beaufoy, from the novel by Paul Torday, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is set to open on March 9th from CBS Films.

From the director of Chocolat and the Oscar-winning® screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire comes the inspirational comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. When Britain's leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh's (Amr Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a "good will" story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
