A24 released the first trailer for “Under the Silver Lake,” a new drama coming to theaters in June starring Andrew Garfield and Riley Keough. The film is the latest from writer and director David Robert Mitchell (It Follows) and is set to release on June 22, 2018. The film follows one man’s search for answers through a series of crimes, murders, and disappearances in an East L.A. neighborhood.
Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33-year-old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal, and conspiracy in the City of Angels.
The studio teases the film calling it a “sprawling, playful and unexpected mystery-comedy detective thriller about the Dream Factory and its denizens—dog killers, aspiring actors, glitter-pop groups, nightlife personalities, It girls, memorabilia hoarders, masked seductresses, homeless gurus, reclusive songwriters, sex workers, wealthy socialites, topless neighbors, and the shadowy billionaires floating above (and underneath) it all”. The studio goes on to add, “Mining a noir tradition extending from Kiss Me Deadly and The Long Goodbye to Chinatown and Mulholland Drive, Mitchell uses the topography of Los Angeles as a backdrop for a deeper exploration into the hidden meaning and secret codes buried within the things we love.”
Garfield recently starred in the movie “Breathe” from actor/director by Andy Serkis, while Riley Keough recently starred in the film “Logan Lucky” from Steven Soderbergh.
A24 is set to release “Under the Silver Lake” on June 22, which has the film opening against some heavy-hitters. Set to debut that same weekend is “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, James Cromwell, Geraldine Chaplin, and Toby Jones, and “The Incredibles 2” is opening the previous week. Those two films could easily bury “Under the Silver Lake” at the box-office, so set a reminder if you want to catch the film in theaters.
