Amazon Studios released a trailer this week for “You Were Never Really Here,” a mystery-thriller that premiered at the 70th Cannes Film Festival. The film earned Lynne Ramsay a win for Best Screenplay, and Joaquin Phoenix took home the award for Best Actor. While the film was written and Directed By Lynne Ramsay, the story itself is based on the book by Jonathan Ames. Starring in the film alongside Joaquin Phoenix are Judith Roberts, Ekaterina Samsonov, John Doman, Alex Manette, Dante Pereira-Olsen, and Alessandro Nivola.

In the film, a traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, his nightmares overtake him and he is soon chasing a conspiracy that may be his final undoing.

You can pre-order the film on Amazon Prime Video, and check out the trailer that was released this week from the studio. The drama will get a limited-release in theaters starting on April 6, 2018.

Fans of Phoenix can also see him in the drama “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot,” written and directed by Gus Van Sant. That film also features Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara, and Jack Black. The story picks up after a man is forced back into sobriety following a life-changing accident. The film follows his path to recovery through art, illustrations, and friendships.

It was also reported this week that Phoenix is in talks to star in a origin-story film based on the DC Comics’ “The Joker” character, but no official announcements have been made at this time. Todd Phillips is expected to direct that film, and write the screenplay for DC Comics. The latest DC film to hit theaters was “Justice League,” directed by Zack Snyder, which featured Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Jason Momoa. Despite mediocre reviews, the film grossed over $228M domestically and over $656M worldwide for the studio.
