New Trailer For THE LOBSTER On Eve Of USA Release
After a long lap around the festival circuit, from Cannes to TIFF and a commercial release in most of Europe at this point, The Lobster, the latest bit of satiric weirdness from Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, ALPS) nears its domestic release (March 11) on this side of the pond. Thus, a new trailer has been cut.
The trailer below should be familiar to those who remember the previous trailers, with text-inserts featuring a host of critics' ebullient exclamations. More importantly, this new one has more Olivia Colman, which is always a good thing.
For the uninitiated, The Lobster is the young Greek director's internationally star-studded English language crossover, and features Colin Farrell as a lonely man who goes to a specialized singles resort to find love, at the risk of being transformed into an animal, if coupling is unsuccessful. There he meets several men and women in the same predicament, including John C. Reilly, Ben Whishaw, Angeliki Papoulia and Léa Seydoux. Things come to a head with the boutique hotel after he runs away with Rachel Weisz.
