The folks at IFC have finally unveiled the domestic trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s grueling epic Che, which will be released in two parts starting January 9, 2009. It stars Benicio Del Toro as Ernesto Che Guevara, that guy from all of those T-shirts. The film, which spans over four hours appears to be as epic as they come, a real opportunity for Frat houses across America to finally understand the man they have hanging on their walls. From what I’ve heard, it’s a real achievement for both Steven Soderbergh and actor Benicio Del Toro, who shines in the title role. That is yet to be seen — at least by mine own two eyes — so for now we can all have a look at the trailer below.
