The new trailer for CBS Films' Toronto pick-up "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" has landed at Yahoo Movies.  Directed by Lasse Hallström from a screenplay by "Slumdog Millionaire" scribe Simon Beaufoy, the film follows Britain's foremost fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor), who is asked by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to fulfill a Sheikh's wish to bring fly-fishing to the desert. Kristin Scott Thomas is the Prime Minister's eager press secretary, fervent in her desire to see the scheme come true.
