The Oscar-nominated “Misplaced Daughter” actress returns to the heady horrors she plumbed in Charlie Kaufman’s “I am Thinking of Ending Things.”
After directing the heady Fx sci-fi collection “Devs,” Alex Garland returns to the realm of auteur horror with his newest movie, “Men.” It stars freshly minted Academy Award nominee Jessie Buckley (“The Shed Daughter”) in a function that seems eerily identical to the girl she performed in Charlie Kaufman’s “I’m Contemplating of Ending Things”: She’s on a kind of nightmarish vacation excursion in the countryside, where by some thing haunting is swirling all-around in her present, and it has to do with guys. Enjoy the initially trailer for the A24 movie under.
Joining Jessie Buckley are Rory Kinnear (most a short while ago noticed as MI6 staff Invoice Tanner in the Daniel Craig James Bond movies) and Paapa Essiedu (the “I May Wipe out You” breakout who earned a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Fantastic Supporting Actor enjoying Wade). “Men” attributes cinematography from Rob Hardy, who shot Alex Garland’s Academy Award-nominated directorial debut “Ex Machina,” as well as his observe-up science-fiction horror movie “Annihilation” and all episodes of “Devs.” Hardy introduced that production experienced wrapped in the United Kingdom on May possibly 22, 2021.
“Men” is penned and directed by Garland, performing with an unique screenplay, and produced by Eli Bush, Andrew Macdonald, and Allon Reich.
A24 formerly unveiled Garland’s “Ex Machina,” which dabbled in components of gothic horror with its isolated location (a beloved of Garland’s) and tale of a scientific madman (Oscar Isaac) maniacally constructing indentured female robots in his lair. Garland earned a Finest Unique Screenplay Oscar nomination for “Ex Machina,” which acquired a shock Very best Visual Outcomes Oscar gain. “Annihilation,” introduced and rather significantly dumped by Paramount before being offloaded to Netflix in foreign territories again in 2018, was also a straight-up psychedelic horror film with sci-fi roots. Although a box-business office flop earning $43 million in opposition to a output funds of a little far more than that, the film, starring Natalie Portman on her very own existential journey through a mutating nightmare-scape of monstrous flora and fauna, is now regarded as a little bit of a new cult vintage.
Future up, Alex Garland directs Kirsten Dunst in A24’s “Civil War,” an also-top rated-mystery motion epic teaming the British author and director with the now-Oscar-nominated “Power of the Dog” star for the initial time. Dunst is attached to star, along with Wagner Moura (“Narcos”), Stephen McKinley Henderson (“Dune”), and Cailee Spaeny (“Mare of Easttown”). Andrew Macdonald, Allon Reich, and Gregory Goodman will develop the movie with A24.
“Men” will be introduced in theaters on Could 20, 2022.
