After his first four films–Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace, Black Mass, and Hostiles–fell into the prestige drama territory, Scott Cooper is loosening up a bit for his next feature, diving into full-on horror with Antlers. Produced by Guillermo del Toro, Fox Searchlight have now debuted the first trailer ahead of an early 2020 release.
The film follows a small-town Oregon teacher (Keri Russell) and her brother (Jesse Plemons), the local sheriff, who discover that a young student (Jeremy T. Thomas) is harboring a dangerous secret with frightening consequences. Shot by Florian Hoffmeister, cinematographer of Terence Davies’ Sunset Song and The Deep Blue Sea, the trailer has no shortage of compelling imagery.
Also starring JT Corbitt, Graham Greene, Scott Haze, Rory Cochrane, and Amy Madigan, see the trailer and poster below.
Antlers opens in early 2020.
