Nicole Kidman Traps Colin Farrell in ‘The Beguiled’ Trailer
It’s almost as if Warner Bros. was waiting until they could tack on the Cannes Film Festival’s coveted Official Selection palm-leaf to release the new trailer for The Beguiled. Hot on the heels of the news that Sofia Coppola’s latest would make its world premiere on the banks of the Croisette, we’re getting our second major look at this adaptation of Thomas Cullinan’s 1966 novel. (Coppola has made it clear that her film will be an entirely different animal than Don Siegel’s 1971 take on the material.) And from the looks of it, things are not going to turn out so hot for Colin Farrell.

There’s a few reasons the term ‘teaser trailer’ feels especially appropriate when describing the new Sofia Coppola drama The Beguiled. Not only is the average movie-lover excited for a new film from the Virgin Suicides director, the typical Colin Farrell fan hyped for the The Lobster actor to dig into more dramatic territory, or those missing Big Little Lies anxious for new Nicole Kidman; but this movie, about a boarding school quivering with insidious desires and sexual tension, looks to be the epitome of a tease.

Sofia Coppola’s remake of The Beguiled is one of the most intriguing movies hitting theaters this year. The original, made in 1971 and starring Clint Eastwood, is based on an 1866 Southern Gothic novel by Thomas P. Cullinan. Coppola is known for her softly-toned, extremely atmospheric, dreamy filmmaking, and that style coupled with a story that’s weird as all hell is going to make for a fantastic film.

Well, would you look at that. Sofia Coppola went and made a proper genre film — transforming her signature dreamy style into something vaguely insidious in the first trailer for The Beguiled. A remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood film (based on the 1966 novel of the same name), Coppola’s latest stars Colin Farrell as a wounded Union soldier who takes refuge at a southern boarding school headed by Nicole Kidman. And then things…take a turn.

Sofia Coppola’s latest project already sounds like it could be her most interesting in years, particularly for a longtime fan such as myself who found her last two efforts — Somewhere and The Bling Ring — to be entirely underwhelming (though not without some merit). The director has officially begun production on her next film, The Beguiled, a Civil War-era drama which marks her fourth feature with Kirsten Dunst, and will hit theaters next summer.
