The Beguiled Trailer

"He seems to be a sensitive person." "Does he?" Focus Features has debuted a new full-length trailer for Sofia Coppola's latest film, titled The Beguiled, adapted from Thomas Cullinan's Southern Gothic novel. Set during the Civil War, an injured Union soldier ends up being nursed back to life at an all-girls' boarding school in the Confederate south. Soon the girls begin to turn on him, making this into more than it seems at first glance. Colin Farrell plays the soldier, and the cast includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Oona Laurence. This looks like a rather twisted, wicked, seductive film from Coppola. The Beguiled will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this May. Expect to hear plenty of buzz about this soon.

Here's the second official trailer for Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled, direct from Focus' YouTube:

You can still see the first teaser trailer for Coppola's The Beguiled here, for more footage from this.

While imprisoned in a Confederate girls' boarding school, an injured Union soldier cons his way into each of the lonely women's hearts, causing them to turn on each other, and eventually, on him. The Beguiled is both written and directed by American filmmaker Sofia Coppola, of the films The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette, Somewhere, The Bling Ring, as well as Netflix's A Very Murray Christmas previously. Adapted from Thomas Cullinan's novel of the same name, first published in 1966. The film will premiere in-competition at the Cannes Film Festival this summer. Focus Features will release Coppola's The Beguiled in select theaters starting June 23rd this summer, expanding the week after. So who's into this?

    If you're new to this story do yourself a favor and skip this trailer. It pretty much tells the WHOLE story. Coppola is a very talented director and deserves to have her films seen by more than just a few art-types in University. It's really too bad the studio would do this to a potentially good film, remake or not.
      Agreed about the spoiler trailer...I think sometimes the comments section should fall before the article...

    Not really a fan of Ms. Coppola's work, but but being familiar with the Eastwood movie of the same title and story, plus the cast she's assembled I can't help but think this is going to be a pretty good flick. It sure looks like it from viewing this trailer. I find myself not only interested, but also impressed...a far too infrequent feeling I experience around the movies these days.
    • I remember now. It's indeed the remake of the movie starring Eastwood. Thanks for refreshing my memory.

        You're welcome, tarek. Eastwood's film was directed by Don Segal...who did the original black and white Invasion of the Body Snatchers in 1956 and the really great war film with Steve McQueen in 1962...Hell is for Heroes. That's a really good film and McQueen's character and his performance is probably one of my favorites by McQueen. It's a pretty bleak, dark, gritty film. A far cry from The Great Escape. This could be an interesting take by Ms. Coppola from the original book and with a female approach. I'm for some reason very interested. I don't remember thinking much of the Eastwood film. It was okay...later gator.
        • I didn't watch Hell is for Heroes. I'll check it out. Thanks for the heads up. ;D

            You're welcome and if you like Steve McQueen you're in for a real treat. It also has some other interesting cast members I'm sure you'll recognize. Enjoy...and let me know what you think. Adios....
    "YOU VENGEFUL BITCHES!!!!!!!!!!!" Instant Classic~~~~~~~

    Looks promising. Although not pleasant. And I like seeing N Kidman again making a good film ...
