Watch: Official US Trailer for Wacky Polish Mermaid Film 'The Lure'

January 6, 2017

The Lure Trailer

"All you need to do is have fun. The rest is easy." Janus Films has debuted an official US trailer (red band for mermaid nudity) for a film titled The Lure, a wacky Polish indie about two mermaid girls who join a human band in Warsaw. Part comedy, part cabaret, part horror, part romance, you won't find anything else like this film out there, though it may be a little too wacky for some. The cast includes Marta Mazurek, Michalina Olszanska, Kinga Preis, Andrzej Konopka, Jakub Gierszal, Zygmunt Malanowicz, Katarzyna Herman and Marcin Kowalczyk. I've been hearing about this film for a while, ever since it premiered at Sundance last year, and it's destined to become a cult classic - catch it in theaters this winter.

Here's the first red band trailer (+ poster) for Agnieszka Smoczynska's The Lure, originally from

The Lure Movie Poster

One dark night, at water's edge, a family of musicians encounter aquatic sirens Silver and Golden. After assuring the family that they won't eat them up, the winsome sirens are recruited to join the Figs and Dates band at a neon-lit Warsaw dance club. When Silver becomes romantically entangled with beautiful blonde bassist Mietek, the more cunning Golden, who cannot escape her bloodthirsty nature, worries that her sister's relationship will doom their shared dream of swimming to a new life in America. The Lure is directed by Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Smoczynska, making her feature directorial debut. The script is by Robert Bolesto. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year, and played at numerous fests all over the world. The Lure opens in select US theaters starting February 1st, 2017 this winter. Interested?

When new & different is not a good thing.

I'm pretty sure their half brother Bronze will show up in the third act and eat all the blonde women in the dance club.

You're underestimating blonde and, also,brunette Polish women. I tell you they are fearless and will prevail on the end ...

Hum...I believe you have a funny anecdote to tell, involving a blonde polish woman... ;D

In my case, it was Czech one. But, they can all be very nice ...

You win the internets today with a solid Dune reference!

;D I couldn't resist to pull this quote from one of my favorite movie of all time. I watched Dune maybe 50 times or more.

How do you feel about Denis Villeneuve possibly taking the helm of a reboot/remake etc? My bro in law is a huge fan of the books, and feels this is a franchise goldmine Hollywood keeps failing to tap into.

RAW_D on Jan 8, 2017


Dune is a grandiose and epic story. I think it should be adapted as a mini series a la game of thrones, with a serious budget and a serious cast. The previous attempts to adapt Dune as a tv series were laughable at best. As for Villeneuve, I will wait to see his Nlade Runner before I give him a Voucher for Dune. But I'll vouch George Miller for this job any day.
