A24 has unveiled a teaser trailer for Men, the latest film from Oscar nominee Alex Garland (Ex Machina, Annihilation), which is slated for release on May 20.
The horror-drama centers on Harper (Oscar nominee Jessie Buckley) who retreats alone to the beautiful English countryside in the aftermath of a personal tragedy, hoping to have found a place to heal. But someone or something from the surrounding woods appears to be stalking her. What begins as simmering dread becomes a fully-formed nightmare, inhabited by her darkest memories and fears. Rory Kinnear and Paapa Essiedu round out the cast of the film written and directed by Garland. DNA’s Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich produced.
Garland received his first Oscar nomination in 2016 for his Ex Machina screenplay and has also garnered accolades over the course of his career including a DGA Award and three BAFTA Award noms, among others. He also helmed the 2018 film Annihilation and created, wrote, directed and exec produced the FX on Hulu series Devs.
The filmmaker recently announced that he’d be reteaming with A24 on the heels of Men for Civil War, an action epic that has Kirsten Dunst (The Power of the Dog, The Beguiled) set to star alongside Wagner Moura (The Shining Girls, Narcos), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Dune, Bruised) and Cailee Spaeny (The First Lady, Mare of Easttown). Garland will direct that film set in a near-future America from his original screenplay. Details as far as its plot are being kept under wraps. A24 will produce, alongside Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich of DNA and Gregory Goodman, and handle the film’s global release.
