The trailer for the Matt Damon/John Krasinski flick “Promised Land” has arrived – providing us with a first look at the film that has the natural gas industry freaking out.

The story, co-written by Damon and Krasinski, takes on the controversial practice of  hydraulic fracking — or drilling deep into rock to release natural gas — and focuses on a small town weighing financial benefit or environmental degradation. For director Gus Van Sant, however, the story is more about human relationships than anything political.

“Maybe the writers are reacting to modern business practices and current events that they’ve been reading in the last year,” he told the UT San Diego. “But the story is a human story, an American business story.”

As we reported earlier, buzz for the film is strong – with producers deciding to offer exclusive viewings in New York and Los Angeles on December 28th so that it can be considered for the 2013 Oscars ceremony. It will then begin its expanded release in January.
