“Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" Trailer

This is a hollywood film set to hit theaters on March 9th, and CBS Films has debuted a new trailer for the movie adapted from the novel by Paul Torday “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.”
The film stars Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Kristin Scott Thomas and Amr Waked and is directed by Lasse Hallstrom, the drama/romance/comedy involves a fisheries expert who is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheik's vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert.
Soon after, an upstream journey of faith and fish begins to prove the impossible possible.



Ewan McGregor: "I took Emily Blunt fly-fishing.. and she caught my dog"
Ewan McGregor took Hollywood actress Emily Blunt fly fishing – and she ended up catching his dog.
The Crieff-born actor was in Scotland last year filming Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, about a fisheries scientist who tries to bring the sport to the Middle East.  Ewan was showing off his newly acquired casting skills to Emily – who starred in The Devil Wears Prada and The Adjustment Bureau – when disaster struck. He said: “All the actors stayed in this beautiful little house.
“They had a pond down at the bottom of the garden and some rods and both Amr Waked, who is also in the movie, and I had learnt to fly fish. “We were showing off because we were trying to impress Emily with our fly fishing skills – ‘Look, you do it like this, don’t bendy our wrist, no, that’s right...’
“And she caught my dog who was running around behind. “She hooked him. She didn’t catch any fish but she did catch my dog.” Ewan’s dog Sid – a poodle-terrier cross he got from a rescue centre in Los Angeles – wasn’t hurt. The Trainspotting star said: “She didn’t catch my dog badly. “He’s a little poodle type so he’s got quite thick, curly hair – it was just in his hair. “But he couldn’t quite work out why he couldn’t run away with this thing in his hair. “Poor wee soul – he was fine, unharmed. Don’t get the people from PETA on to me, please, Iook after him.” Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is based on a Paul Torday novel and co-stars Kristin Scott Thomas. Ewan plays Dr Alfred Jones, who is tasked with introducing salmon to the desert wadis. Ewan changed Jones to a Scot and gave him a posh accent closer to Edinburgh’s Morningside. He said: “It was important. I like to play things in my own accent because I find it more exposing. “When I saw the film and it cut to Fred fishing in Scotland, I was like, ‘I’ve gotta get home’. It’s so beautiful up there.”
