Full Trailer for Alex Garland's Mysterious 'Men' with Jessie Buckley
"You must wonder why you drove him to it…" But is wasn't her… was it? A24 has debuted the full-length official trailer for Alex Garland's new film titled Men, his follow-up to both Annihilation and Ex Machina. There's still no official synopsis, but from what we can tell from this trailer, it's a horror thriller about how haunting most men can be. Jessie Buckley stars as a woman who goes on solo a vacation in the English countryside after the death of her ex-husband. It also features Rory Kinnear (playing a bunch of different men) and Paapa Essiedu. With cinematography by Rob Hardy (who also shot Ex Machina, M:I Fallout). This trailer gives us a better look at what's going on - something involving this apple tree (an Adam & Eve reference?) and forbidden fruit and how it connects to the many men around her. Yeah this looks incredible.
