‘Killing of a Sacred Deer’ Trailer: Kidman and Farrell reunite for a mystery-thriller
The two stars recently starred in 'The Beguiled'
A24 released the first official trailer for “Killing of a Sacred Deer” this week, the film is a mystery horror-drama that is set to hit theaters this fall. A24 has been on an almost non-stop winning streak with its choice in projects over the last few years, having recently released hits like “Room,” “Ex-Machina,” “The Lobster, “American Honey,” “Swiss Army Man,” and” “Moonlight”. Now the studio is teasing us with this upcoming release, set for October 27, and starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Barry Keoghan, and Alicia Silverstone.
The film was written and directed by Academy Award-nominated Yorgos Lanthimos, who recently worked with Colin Farrell on the A24 film “The Lobster”. Both “The Lobster” and “Killing of a Sacred Deer” were co-written by Efthymis Filippou.
“Killing of a Sacred Deer” was quite a hit at the Cannes Film Festival this year, A24 picked-up the film as it won the award for Best Screenplay (shared). The clip above is vague and mysterious, which was done purposely so that audiences will go into the story without any expectations or preconceived plot points. The clip highlights the ominous and stark world that Lanthimos created for the film, and should leave you with a sense of dread for our stars.
Fans of the two actors can see the first movie trailer below, uploaded to YouTube by A24 earlier this morning.
Kidman is having a bit of golden moment, coming off her fantastically reviewed HBO series “Big Little Lies,” and the well-reviewed Sofia Coppola film “The Beguiled”. Speaking of “The Beguiled,” Nicole Kidman shared the screen with Colin Farrell in that project, which is how Farrell, Kidman, and the director Yorgos Lanthimos are all connected. Hollywood can be a very small place when everyone gets along and creates hits. You still have a few months of waiting ahead of you before “Killing of a Sacred Deer” hits theaters, so be sure to keep it in on your radar before the film hits theaters on October 27, 2017.
