Elisabeth Moss is the Creepy 'Queen of Earth' in Official US Trailer
"A week at the lake - relaxation, peace & quiet. But under the surface lies emotional unbalance." IFC has debuted the trailer for Alex Ross Perry's latest film Queen of Earth, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival. Starring Elisabeth Moss, this eerie throwback to old school horror tells of a woman scorned after a break up who retreats to madness at her friend's lakeside cabin. Also starring Katherine Waterston, Patrick Fugit and Kentucker Audley. We just ran another international trailer a few weeks ago, but this is the official US version promoting the release next month. Elisabeth Moss is always worth complimenting, as she's so very talented, but this may not be everyone's cup 'o tea. I do like the way the critics' quotes scroll.
Here's the official US trailer for Alex Ross Perry's Queen of Earth, in high def from Apple:
Catherine and Virginia are best friends. Last year, Virginia wasn't doing well, while it's Catherine who's struggling this year. Virginia's parents own a lakeside cabin, the perfect place for a week of mutual wound licking. Sun pours in through the windows, framing the cool green of the trees outside. But this isn't the refuge it seems and it's not just the music that awakens the menace in the images. The ripples across the lake and the wan sunlight offer little comfort, to say nothing of the picture of a skull lying forgotten in a cupboard. Queen of Earth is written and directed by filmmaker Alex Ross Perry, of Listen Up Philip, The Color Wheel and Impolex previously. The film first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and also played at BAMcinemaFest. Queen of Earth arrives in select theaters starting August 26th next month.
