The ‘A Cure For Wellness’ Trailer is a Bucket Filled With WTFs!

On February 17, 2017, 20th Century Fox will release his A Cure For Wellness, which sounds a bit like a non-violent Hostel. Dane DeHaan stars as an employee who has been sent to rescue his boss from a European “wellness spa,” while Mia Goth would play a patient at the facility.

The film is described as a supernatural horror film, although yesterday’s viral videos only tell us one thing: we’re all sick and need help.

Now, we finally have the film’s first trailer, which aired during tonight’s episode of “American Horror Story: Roanoke”, and it’s a doozy! There’s no real dialogue in the footage, but we see that Verbinski, who directed The Ring and Pirates of the Caribbean, is as marvelous as ever. What’s you’re going to see is nothing short of stunning, and even looks a bit inspired by the years he spent attempting to adapt the “BioShock” videogame; there’s a quasi-steampunk atmosphere that reminds me of some seminal films of the 90s (Dark City anyone?), while also bringing a modern grit to the aesthetics. Even with a synopsis, there so much mystery surrounding what we see in the A Cure For Wellness trailer that it has instantaneously became my most anticipated film of 2017.

Here’s what we know so far:

An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps. He soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure.

    This movie is going to own. Might even be the first horror flick nominated for an oscar too. Its different, it’s R, its weird, creepy, everything you ever want. And I have to agree with Mr. D that this is so like a dark city vibe.

      Rosemary’s Baby (1968) and The Exorcist (1973) received Best Picture nominations at the Oscars. Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde (1931) received a Best Actor nomination, as well. Never mind all the Oscar nominations that other horror films have received over the decades for make-up, special effects, screenplay, music, lighting, etc. Come on.

  • Visually stunning and I’m a fan of Dane Dehaan, count me in!

    Way to ruin a classic by the Ramones. Stupid millennial musicians.

    • Dr. Gitrog Crow

      Get fucked, man. Like your generation hasn’t shat on your share of classics. Pretty much every hair metal cover of anything is shit.

      I’m not sure how its ruined. They did a genius job of using the Gone Girl music from the throat slash sex scene and used those almost sad female vocals to that song specifically because of the lyrics.

    Visionary Director? Really?

  • David Tucker

    Great trailer, but I think the downbeat, deary covers of famous pop songs are starting to become the next Inception “Baaaaauuuuummmmm…” for movie trailers.

    That being said, the visuals look magnificent. And I’ll watch Verbinkski do any horror flick he wants after he shocked the shit out of me with The Ring.

    Has a very Shutter Island feel to it… even more so with the lead actor looking so much like DiCaprio…

  • Mr. Dry

    Really nice trailer, tense and intriguing. Love the poster they released too.

  • Bioshock meets Bloodborne

    • Shawn Simpson

      If its even remotely like that I will literally cry in the theater. 2 of my favorite games of all time combined into one mind fuck of a movie…I can no longer contain my excitement
