Darkness. Tears. Sighs.
After months of off-the-charts hype, the full trailer for the Luca Guadagnino-directed remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria is finally here in all of its glory, coming in the wake of the teaser trailer back in June. This second trailer goes heavy on the idea of The Three Mothers, a welcome treat for hardcore Argento fans. Suspiria, Inferno and Mother of Tears are collectively known as Argento’s “Three Mothers Trilogy,” and it seems Guadagnino has infused all three into his Suspiria. He’s clearly a big fan, which is a major point of excitement for his vision.
Trailer #2 is also home to no shortage of haunting visuals and Kubrick’ian vibes, teasing feel and tone without showing *too much*. We also get a taste of THAT heavily hyped scene.
Looks like we may have a “Best of 2018” contender on our hands, eh? The film is now opening one week early on October 26 in NY and LA, expanding nationwide November 2.
In the new film…
“A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director (Swinton), an ambitious young dancer (Johnson), and a grieving psychotherapist (Ebersdorf). Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.”
The cast includes Dakota Johnson, Chloe Grace-Moretz, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Sylvie Testud, Renée Soutendijk, Angela Winkler, Małgosia Bela and Lutz Ebersdorf.
Radiohead’s Thom Yorke composed the score. David Kajganich wrote the film, co-financed by Amazon Studios and K Period Media.
