This weekend is the 126th year anniversary of the infamous 1892 axe murder of the Borden family in Fall River, Massachusetts. Saban Films and Roadside Attractions have released a trailer for the film “Lizzie” to preview the new film, which is hitting theaters on September 14, 2018. The film was directed by Craig William Macneill, working from a screenplay by Bryce Kass. Joining Sevigny and Stewart on screen are Jamey Sheridan, Fiona Shaw, Kim Dickens, Denis O’Hare and Jeff Perry. September is shaping up to be a great month for thrillers, which means “Lizzie” will have a lot of competition at the box-office.
The film stars Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny (Boys Don’t Cry, “Big Love”) as Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy (2015), “Channel Zero: Candle Cove”) explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams. Fans of crime bio-dramas can watch the trailer below and set a reminder to catch the film when it hits theaters in September.
September will be filled with thrillers and horrors as the back-to-school crowd waits for Halloween. Warner Bros. Pictures is starting off the month with the horror-thriller “The Nun,” which is opening against Jennifer Garner’s action-thriller “Peppermint”. The following weekend Lionsgate is releasing the thriller “A Simple Favor” with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, which is opening against the crime-drama “White Boy Rick” with Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bel Powley, Rory Cochrane, and Bruce Dern. Other thrillers set to launch that month are the Sundance hit “Assassination Nation” and the horror-thriller “Hell Fest”.
