Official Trailer for Kogonada's Sci-Fi 'After Yang' with Colin Farrell
"I wish I had a real memory." "What do you mean?" A24 has unveiled the official trailer for After Yang, the newest film from the acclaimed filmmaker known as "Kogonada", who made quite an impression with his feature debut Columbus from a few years ago. After Yang premiered at last year's Cannes Film Festival to some rave reviews (here's mine) and it also just played at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival this month. Set in the near future, a family reckons with questions of love, connection, and loss after their A.I. helper unexpectedly breaks down. Yang is the name of the android, and when they take him in for repair they learn there's much more to him than they thought. The film stars Colin Farrell, Jodie Turner-Smith, Justin H. Min, Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja, and Haley Lu Richardson. One of the best sci-fi films to see this year, one of my favorites from Cannes. I've seen it twice now and it's as wonderful as ever. Have a look.
Here's the official trailer (+ first poster) for Kogonada's After Yang, direct from A24's YouTube:
When his young daughter's beloved companion—an android named Yang (Justin H. Min)—malfunctions, Jake (Colin Farrell) searches for a way to repair him. In the process, Jake discovers the life that has been passing in front of him, reconnecting with his wife (Jodie Turner-Smith) and daughter across a distance he didn't know was there. After Yang is both written & directed by acclaimed Korean-American filmmaker Kogonada, his second feature after making the film Columbus previously, as well as many video essays and other projects. Based on the short story by Alexander Weinstein. This initially premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival last year (read our review), and also played at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. A24 will debut Kogonada's After Yang in select US theaters + streaming on Showtime on March 4th, 2022. Look good?
