The Beguiled Trailer

"If you could have anything in the world, what would it be?" "To be taken far away from here…" Focus Features has unveiled the teaser 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 inside a girls' boarding school in the Confederate south. Colin Farrell plays the soldier, and the cast includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Oona Laurence. While at first this seems like a simple love story, the twist is that the girls eventually turn on him, and there's that crazy funny line that Farrell shouts at the end of this trailer that is already being turned into a meme online.

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

The Beguiled Movie Teaser

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 has yet to premiere at a major film festival. Focus Features will release Coppola's The Beguiled in select theaters starting June 23rd this summer, expanding the next week. Stay tuned for more updates. Who's interested?

    No mention that it's a remake of the Clint Eastwood film?

      Yea, good observation. It won't help them in marketing the film, but why Alex didn't include that bit of info is interesting. I don't know about this one. It's got a great cast. It might be an interesting take on the story with a woman directing instead of the very macho Don Siegel. The Eastwood film was pretty good, but it was back in 1971...which is a long time ago and most audience members will have no clue of its existence. I'm sure I shall remain partial to the original. I'm not a big fan of Ms. Coppola's work and have a hard time watching Kidman now since she's had so much cosmetic surgery she looks like a porcelain doll. Pity because she was very interesting to watch in the past. Oh well, aging is horrifying I reckon...much more so for actresses probably. Naomi Watts hasn't done any of that and she remains interesting to watch as she ages and develops lines around her eyes, etc. She just looks more authentic than Kidman. Sorry for the shall depart now and put my soap box back in the closet. Cheers!

        So is the original worth a watch? I've seen it on Encore Westerns from time to time but never gave it a go.

          Yea, sure it's worth a watch, Raw. It's nothing to turn the crown's heads, but it's got some bite to it and a funny and ironic ending to the whole affair. What's of interest about it now is they made this back in 1971 with the women's ordeal, etc. that the film deals with. Check it out. Can't hurt. Cheers!
          • RAW_D
            I'll give it a shot! Thanks for the recommendation Bo!
          • Bo
            You're welcome, Raw. Let me know if you watch it and if you liked it or way or the other as I've no vested interest in you liking it or not. Righto cheerio?
    • I guess they're going the route of "it's another adaptation of the book, not a remake" like some other films recently. The novel is definitely credited/mentioned. Haven't seen the Eastwood film - any good?
      • cuckoozey
        Oh, it's a classic for sure. Don Siegel directs, same title and everything...
    Rooster in the hen house.

    That's really intriguing. Got a solid cast.
    I've earned 104000 dollars last year by working on-line and I did it by wo­rking part time f­o­r several h /daily. I’m using work opportunity I was introduced by this web-site i found on-line and I am so excited that i made so much money. It's so user friendly and I'm just so grateful that I found out about this.

    I am not always a fan of Sofia Coppola's films, but I am a bit intrigued, I must say. Especially since I vaguely remember film with C. Eastwood ...
  • RAW_D
    I LOVED the Virgin Suicides and I'm a fan of Sofia's style. Lost in Translation was overrated and boring, but this looks interesting. Although not sure how it compares to the original with Eastwood.
