Trailer premiere: Idol star teams up with Temuera

Singer Stan Walker is making his acting debut alongside Temuera Morrison in the upcoming New Zealand film Mt Zion.

The Australian Idol winner plays Turei, a young musician who dreams of his band playing support for Bob Marley in his 1979 Auckland concert.

His ambition sets him up for conflict with his whanau, most particularly his father - a potato picker played by New Zealand film veteran Morrison.

Director Tearepa Kahi shot the film in Pukekohe.

It is set for release in New Zealand cinemas on February 6 next year.
