Salmon Fishing In The Yemen gets a trailer

The first trailer for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen has landed online.

Lasse Hallström's romantic comedy drama stars Ewan McGregor as a scientist tasked with introducing salmon to the waters of Yemen for an ambitious Middle-Eastern Sheik.

His tasks not as bad as it sounds though, thanks to the fact that the Sheik's legal representative is played by the ever-charming Emily Blunt.

The political angle is seemingly just a backdrop for what look like fairly traditional romcom antics, but McGregor and Blunt have a pleasing chemistry and Kristin Scott Thomas is on hand to provide sturdy support.

Check out the trailer below:

Salmon Fishing In The Yemen opens on 9 March 2012.
