“Men”, the new film by Alex Garland (“Ex Machina”, “Annihilation”) is revealed more with a very disturbing new trailer. Starring Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear.
Men is a nightmarish thriller
After a very enigmatic first trailer, Menthe new film by Alex Garland is unveiled with a new trailer. With this video (in one article), we begin to understand a little better what it will be about. We first discover the heroine Harper, who has come to recharge her batteries in the pleasant English countryside. We understand that the young woman is still marked by a tragedy and these places should do her the greatest good. Obviously, this little corner of paradise will turn into a nightmare.
A creature seems to be chasing her. But is it something/someone, or hallucinations related to his discomfort? The trailer is careful not to reveal everything to us but shows us enough for us to feel too some discomfort. Especially with the ubiquity of Rory Kinnear. The actor indeed lends his face to all men that Harper will come across (hence the title Men). Unless he is just a being who has come to torment her…
Jessie Buckley at Alex Garland
We admit to expecting a lot from Men because it is the third feature film by Alex Garland. The screenwriter had stood out as a director from his first film, Ex Machina (2014). A small marvel was then followed by the most complex Annihilation (2017). Available on Netflix, this science-fiction drama carried by Natalie Portman turns out to be visually interesting but led by a deceptively complicated and rather heavy scenario. We, therefore, hope that with Men his return to the cinema (after the series Devs) will be successful.
Finally, in addition to Rory Kinnear, note the presence of Jessie Buckley, which continues to impress and continue the roles. Revealed by wild rose (2019), the Irish actress then continued with An ordinary spy (2021) alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. And above all obtained an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for The Lost Daughter. A reward that may be awarded to him during the 94th Academy Awards, which will take place on the night of March 28.
Men hit theaters on June 1.
