Colin Farrell knows his fate in first trailer for ‘The Lobster’


“This is my brother. He did this and didn’t make it.”

The first trailer for the festival darling, The Lobster, was released on Thursday, offering a look at the wholly unique sci-fi comedy starring Colin Farrell from director Yorgos Lanthimos. The film also stars Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, John C. Reilly, Olivia Colman, Lea Seydoux, Ariana Labed, Aggeliki Papoulia, Jessica Barden, Ashley Jensen, and Michael Smiley.

The synopsis is as follows:

In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.

This looks to be something incredibly different in the best possible ways and Farrell looks hilarious in the lead. It boasts a strong cast with all of the other players creating this odd universe that also seems very personal and human — even when the people are turning into animals if they don’t find a partner.

Our own Zornitsa Staneva saw the film at Cannes and said, “The Lobster is not intended to be ‘liked’ but rather to arouse unease and defamiliarise certain dominant social norms, points on which it scores fairly well, so that by the end one doesn’t feel like either being in a relationship or not in a relationship, but just to leave these wackos to their pretend weirdness.”

The Lobster is set to show at the Toronto, New York, and London film festivals before opening on October 16 in the U.K. There is no firm release date for North America.
