He rarely leads an ensemble, but Toby Jones pops up in more major films than most of Hollywood’s top stars. In just the last year he’s been seen (and heard) in Captain America: The First Avenger, The Adventures of Tintin, The Hunger Games, Snow White and the Huntsman, My Week with Marilyn and most recently, Red Lights. The actor is now set for a leading role in a new psychological thriller Berberian Sound Studio.
Premiering at Toronto next month, the film from Peter Strickland gives Jones his own Blow Out-esque role as he plays a sound engineer working for a horror maestro. While it looks a bit more over-the-top and chaotic than Brian De Palma‘s masterpiece, I can’t complain when this fantastic character actor is given a chance to lead. Check out the first trailer and new photos below for the film also starring Cosimo Fusco, Antonio Mancino, Fatma Mohamed, Salvatore Li Causi, Chiara D’Anna and Tonia Sotiropoulou.
