Selected as the New York Film Festival 2011 opening night film, we finally have the first trailer for Roman Polanski‘s Carnage. The highly anticipated film features one of the best casts of the year with Kate Winslet, John C. Reilly, Jodie Foster and Christoph Waltz. I haven’t seen the source material of Yasmina Reza‘s Tony-winning play God of Carnage, but the first thing that sticks out is how damn funny this looks. I can’t wait to see Polanski tackle a one-room (or house) location, especially proving he has still got it with last year’s The Ghost Writer. Check out the first trailer below.
Tells the story of two sets of parents who decide to have a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a schoolyard brawl.
Carnage hits theaters on December 16th, 2011.
What do you think of the first trailer?
