About the Movie

Promised Land is a 2012 American drama film directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Matt Damon, Frances McDormand, Hal Holbrook, and John Krasinski. The screenplay is written by Damon and Krasinski based on a story by Dave Eggers. Promised Land follows two corporate salespeople who visit a rural town in an attempt to buy drilling rights from the local residents.

Damon was originally attached to direct the film, but he was replaced by Van Sant. Filming took place mainly in Pittsburgh from early to mid-2012. During filming and afterward, the film’s highlighting of the resource extraction process hydraulic fracturing, colloquially known as “fracking”, emerged as a topic of debate.

The film will have a limited release in the United States on December 28, 2012, followed by a nationwide expansion on January 4, 2013.
