Watching The Lobster was quite the experience, a dystopian future that felt fresh and uncomfortable. Today A24 released the new trailer for The Killing of Sacred Deer – Yorgos Lanthimos’ third film with A24 looks atmospheric, creepy and uninviting.
Starring Colin Farrall, Barry Keoghan and Nicole Kidman. While it’s hard to pin down the exact plotline from the trailer alone, we’ve got the synopsis below. The trailer manifests the vibe of the film so well, highlighting performances, clean camerawork and unique direction.
Dr. Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife Anna (Nicole Kidman) and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljian) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen who Steven has covertly taken under his wing. As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long- forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family’s domestic bliss.
The Killing of Sacred Deer will be released October 26th.
