‘You Were Never Really Here’ Trailer: Joaquin Phoenix Is Brutal
Judging by the new trailer for Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here, you really do not want to find out what “hammer time” means for Joaquin Phoenix. But we’re going to find out anyway when the new thriller hits theaters early next April — or now, if you watch the trailer, which teases a heavy flick in which Phoenix does his best Oldboy impression, playing a “fixer” who hunts down the evil men who kidnap young girls.
Watch the Mesmerizing ‘You Were Never Really Here’ Trailer
Lynne Ramsay has been absent from theaters since she brought us the dark and disturbing We Need to Talk About Kevin in 2011, but when You Were Never Really Here premiered at Cannes, as the last In Competition film to screen, the whole festival was floored and it snatched up the awards for Best Screenplay and Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix. The first international trailer for the movie premiered today, which hopefully means we’ll be seeing it in theaters come this fall.
