Poor Things Teaser

"I am finding being alive fascinating." Searchlight Pictures has revealed the first look teaser for Yorgos Lanthimos new film titled Poor Things, produced by and starring Emma Stone. They last worked together on The Favourite in 2018, and after five years of waiting we're finally getting a new Lanthimos flick (he also made that short Nimic a few years back). The strange new comedy tells the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter, a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter. So it's another Frankenstein tale or something else? The film stars Emma Stone with Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, Ramy Youssef, Jerrod Carmichael, and Christopher Abbott. What a cast! This looks extraordinary! So many colors and whimsical sets and fantastical costumes. I definitely need to see more footage. I'm not excited by the Frankenstein side of it, but everything else looks delectable. Enjoy.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' Poor Things, direct from Searchlight's YouTube:
