Peter Dinklage in First Teaser for Morano's 'I Think We're Alone Now'
"Aren't you lonely?" Momentum Pictures has released a teaser trailer for an indie post-apocalyptic sci-fi titled I Think We're Alone Now, the second feature film made by the talented cinematographer Reed Morano (Meadowland, "The Handmaid's Tale"). This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, to mixed but mostly positive reviews. This film plays like a "Black Mirror" episode, about a guy who is the lone survivor of an apocalypse. Peter Dinklage stars as Del, who works hard to keep his little town maintained in a world where he's the only one left alive. Until someone else suddenly shows us. The surprise cast also includes Elle Fanning, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Paul Giamatti. I wrote a glowing review from Sundance, explaining that this is "subtle sci-fi, where there are tiny hints of sci-fi elements and little threads of themes." I'm a big fan of this film and recommend it, even though this teaser doesn't show much.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Reed Morano's I Think We're Alone Now, direct from YouTube:
Del (Peter Dinklage) is alone in the world. After the human race is wiped out, he lives in his small, empty town, content in his solitude and the utopia he's methodically created for himself - until he is discovered by Grace (Elle Fanning), an interloper whose history and motives are obscure. Worse yet, she wants to stay. I Think We're Alone Now is directed by American filmmaker Reed Morano (follow her @reedmorano), an experienced + successful cinematographer and director of the film Meadowland previously, as well as a few episodes of "The Handmaid's Tale" and other TV. The screenplay is written by Mike Makowsky. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Momentum Pictures will release Reed Morano's I Think We're Alone Now in select US theaters starting on September 14th this fall. Who wants to see this?
