The 33 tells the true story of the Chilean miners who were trapped underground for 69 days back in 2010. Recreating a true story that only occured five years ago meant that the filmmakers knew that most audience members would already know the ending. It was up to editor Michael Tronick to help keep up the suspense regardless.

"The challenge was to get the audience invested in the characters and lose themselves in the story," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. "To create conflict, to create suspense, to get into what the government had to do to accomplish the rescue and what the miners had to do to stay alive."
