Yesterday Focus Features released a brand new trailer for The Beguiled starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst. We played trailer VS trailer a few weeks back, comparing the trailer for this 2017 remake VS the 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page.
But this newest trailer comes with a whole new intensity. If you liked the way the women came together in a big way in Big Little Lies, you’ll love how the women work as a unit in this film. Because ladies, we are invincible, especially when we fight as a unit. The film seems perfectly timed to open in a period where women are mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore, especially when it comes to bad boy behavior. Yes, I’m talking to you Bill O’Reilly. I wonder how big the movie’s hashtag #VengefulBitches will trend? There’s already talk of t-shirts!
Like the 1971 version, The Beguiled is based on the book, The Painted Devil, by Thomas Cullinan. This time around, it’s directed by a woman, the acclaimed Sofia Coppola, best known for helming Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides. Watch for it to open on June 23.
About the movie
“The Beguiled is an atmospheric thriller from acclaimed writer/director Sofia Coppola. The story unfolds during the Civil War, at a Southern girls’ boarding school. Its sheltered young women take in an injured enemy soldier. As they provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, and taboos are broken in an unexpected turn of events.’ ~ Focus Features
